Chronic Venous Insufficiency is a medical condition in which the veins are unable to pump deoxygenated blood back to the heart. This is caused because the one-way valves that are inside the veins are damaged (incompetent) and this causes venous reflux (blood pooling on the legs instead of returning to the heart) often resulting in chronic swelling of the legs, skin discoloration, Venous Eczema (itching), and Lipodermatosclerosis (thin, shiny, leathery skin).
If Venous Reflux is left untreated, it will cause Venous Ulcers (skin sores) and it can take years for them to heal.
Symptoms can include:
Damaged valves inside the veins
Abnormal leg veins

"I was a patient a few years ago and the relief he gave with the procedure on my upper legs was great. I went back this year to have the rest of my legs done and I was impressed by his current staff. He and his nurses are caring and listen to what the patient is saying. They make you feel so comfortable that the whole experience was great! The front end was so nice and professional. They greet you with a smile and greet you by your name. My legs feel great! All the heaviest is gone. A lot of the swelling is down and I am very pleased. Thank you to everyone who works there."
