Is there a Cure for Varicose Veins?

Dr. Warren has been in private practice doing phlebology since 1999. Phlebology is the branch of medicine that deals with the care of vein disease. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology and is located in Palm Desert between El Paseo and Deep Canyon on the south side of Highway 111. She has performed thousands of minimally invasive vein procedures and has been a trainer of other physicians in all aspects of these procedures.

Varicose veins can be successfully treated with almost all patients getting symptomatic and/or cosmetic improvement when the entire treatment plan is carried out properly. Varicose vein disease is genetic and for the most part cannot be permanently cured. Maintenance checkups and treatments are recommended to keep the venous insufficiency and/or pressure at a minimum. This differs for everybody. Usually once or twice a year after treatment is all that is necessary. Some require more frequent visits and others continue to do well without any further treatments.
