Venous Disease

Over thirty million people in the United States are affected by venous disease, a chronic and progressive condition. Normally, veins return blood to the heart and lungs so that it can oxygenate and then bring that oxygen to all the tissue, muscles, and organs in the body. In order for veins to fight gravity and carry the blood in the correct direction, the valves within the veins must function properly. Factors such as age, pregnancy, family history, and lifestyle can cause these valves to weaken over time. When valves malfunction, blood collects in the veins of the lower extremities, leading to the development of varicose and spider veins. Below is a list of symptoms associated with venous disease, though many people have none and seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. We are happy to help make your legs look and or feel better. At Solon Vein Clinic, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan personalized for your legs!
