What you need to know about treating varicose veins

"We're board-certified vascular surgeons with state-of-the-art tools have cared for a lot of patients with varicose veins, and we offer a full spectrum of care," said vascular surgeon Ross Milner, MD. Treatment at the University of Chicago Medicine Vein Clinic starts with a comprehensive evaluation by a vascular specialist and simple, noninvasive testing. Specially fitted stockings can help relieve painful symptoms while advanced treatment is being planned. The good news for patients is that this common condition can now be treated with same-day, minimally invasive procedures that do not require general anesthesia or a trip to the operating room.
