What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are twisted, swollen veins that appear blue or purple through the skin. This condition develops when valves in the veins weaken and allow blood to flow in the wrong direction and accumulate. Sometimes, varicose veins are nothing more than a cosmetic concern, but many times they can be uncomfortable and even painful.

Watch for These Common Symptoms

Varicose veins are often evident just by looking at the legs. But beyond appearances, this condition has several symptoms that may cause pain and discomfort. If you’ve spotted varicose veins and also have any of these symptoms, be sure to contact Dr. Moutaa BenMaamer:

  • Leg pain
  • Swelling in the legs
  • Itching or burning sensations
  • Legs feel heavy or overly tired
  • Restless legs
  • Muscle cramps
  • Skin discoloration
  • Leg ulcers
  • Thickened skin

Offering Top-Tier Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose veins can be treated in several different ways. After reviewing your unique condition, we’ll recommend one of the following approaches to treatment:


This method involves using a foam substance to expand the vein walls and cause their collapse. Then, the body naturally clears the destroyed tissue and eliminates the varicose vein.

Endovenous Thermal Ablation

Some patients benefit from this approach, which involves inserting a catheter into the leg vein. When it reaches the end of the vein, a burst of heat energy causes the vein to collapse and disappear over time.

Endovenous Adhesive Ablation

This treatment uses medical-grade adhesive to hold the affected vein together as it heals and returns to normal size.

Endovenous Mechanochemical Ablation

During this procedure, your surgeon will use a catheter to release a sclerosing agent and destroy the vein wall at the same time.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Some patients require a more direct approach to removing varicose veins. During an ambulatory phlebectomy, we'll make a small incision and gently pull out the affected vein.
