What can I do to treat varicose veins?

See phlebologist: Trained vein doctors (phlebologist) can treat vv in an office setting, as one day procedure. Seek help by going to www.Phlebology.Org, and put in your zip code to find phlebologist in your area. Evaluation starts with ultrasound of the leg veins, and modern day treatment includes endovenous ablation, microphlebectomy, sclerotherapy. Results are great, and you will be happy.
