Venous Insufficiency or Varicose Veins Symptoms

Despite high prevalence, many times varicose veins or venous insufficiency is the last thing which patients or physicians think as cause of their symptoms. Common symptoms include.

What Causes Varicose Veins


  • Family history of varicose or spider veins (familial).
  • Multiple pregnancies
  • Prolonged standing on regular basis.
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or obesity.
  • For no reason in some patients (congenital).

Comparison between Endovenous Ablation & Vein Stripping

Fortunately over last couple of years quite a few innovative, non surgical, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have been approved by FDA. We use almost all of them and help our patients to pick the most effective and least painful option.

Stripping & Ligation Surgery

  • General Anesthesia is required
  • Hospitalization is required
  • Pain level 9-10/10
  • 3-5 day recovery time
  • Risk o DVT, finfections & bleeding can be high
  • Very Expensive

Endovenous Ablation

  • Gen anesthesia not needed
  • Hospitalization not needed
  • Minimal pain 3-4/10 during treament
  • Same day recovery
  • Risk of complications is low
  • Less expensive

What our Patients Have to Say About Endovenous Ablation

I knew for years I had problems with veins but kept ignoring. I have always loved ballroom dancing and walking but realized my leg pains and aches were slowing me down. I had vein treatments at Boston Vein Care and couldn't be happier.

  • Wish had come in earlier
  • Never thoughts treatments can be so easy
  • Was back on my feet same day
  • Pain was just like bee stings
  • No more leg pain, swelling & no more slowing down.
