Varicose veins, also called spider veins, are a very common condition in adults, affecting one in three women and one in five men. Age is a leading risk factor—patients 50 years old and older are much more susceptible to developing varicose veins. Genetic disposition also affects a patient's chances of developing varicose veins.
Our surgeons use a variety of laser and catheter-based techniques to effectively treat varicose veins.

Interventional radiology is a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure. The interventional radiologist inserts a thin catheter into your artery, usually in the groin or arm, which has a camera attached. Through the camera, the radiologist guides the catheter through the artery to diagnose and treat diseases, including vascular conditions.
