Are you feeling a pain in the leg?
Bulging, thick, discolored varicose veins are not just a cosmetic problem. These veins can cause a more serious condition called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). CVI occurs when veins in the leg are not working effectively. This causes blood to "pool" and makes it difficult for blood to flow from the heart back to the legs. CVI can make the legs swell, hurt and feel heavy. More severe cases may see skin changes and ulcers.
The Vein Clinic at UT Health North Campus Tyler performs VenefitTM targeted endovenous therapy, a minimally-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency to treat varicose veins and CVI. The Venefit procedure is an outpatient therapy with a fast recovery. Therapy is often covered by insurance when treatment is medically necessary.
