If your veins are causing pain, swelling, or other symptoms, you may have underlying—and potentially serious—vein (venous) disease. Left untreated, vein disease such as varicose veins can create long-term medical problems.
A minimally invasive option
To help our varicose vein patients, Saratoga Hospital offers a technologically advanced, minimally invasive treatment known as endovenous ablation therapy. This simple, outpatient procedure typically takes less than an hour. Most insurance plans will cover the treatment as long as it’s medically necessary.
Symptoms of varicose veins
- Pain, including a dull ache
- A vein that is swollen, red, or very tender or warm to the touch
- Sores or a rash on your leg or near your ankle
- Skin on your ankle or calf that becomes thick or changes color
- A varicose vein that starts to bleed
- Leg symptoms, such as swelling, aching, or cramping, that interfere with daily activities
- Distress over the appearance of your veins
