Venous insufficiency is caused by malfunctioning valves in the superficial veins of the legs. This condition can lead to the common symptoms of heaviness and pain after standing for a long time, swelling, and progressive discomfort. In severe cases, venous ulcers can occur. We use noninvasive ultrasound to evaluate the veins in your legs to assess if they are “refluxing”, which indicates malfunctioning valves. If you are diagnosed with venous insufficiency, we will recommend compression stockings, elevation, and exercise. Should you continue to have symptoms after trying these noninvasive measures, we may recommend venous intervention to improve your quality of life. We will then begin the approval process to obtain an authorization for your procedure.
Symptoms associated with Venous Insufficiency:
- Restless legs
- Large, bulging, rope- like appearance
