Varicose vein and spider vein treatments may relieve pain and discomfort, improve the appearance of your legs, and prevent bleeding and superficial clots. When left untreated, varicose veins can cause venous stasis dermatitis and ulceration (reddish-brown pigmentation, swelling and leathery skin).
Treatment for varicose and spider veins can be invasive, noninvasive or minimally invasive.
The Northwestern Medicine Vein Center offers multiple locations close to where you live and work. Board-certified interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons collaborate to provide you with the highest quality vein care.
