All about your FREE 10 minute screening
- What to expect
You'll complete a brief one-page questionnaire about your medical history.
If you're wearing pants, we'll provide you a pair of disposable shorts to change into.
One of our board-certified vascular surgeons will examine your legs and ask you a few simple questions. The physician will determine if you're a candidate for further vein testing or if another treatment option (e.g., compression stockings) would be appropriate.
- Why have a quick screen
Varicose veins are often a sign of a more serious condition that can worsen if not treated properly. A quick varicose vein screening can help us understand why your bulging veins developed, and guide us in choosing the best treatment option for your specific needs.
- Underlying conditions associated with varicose veins
Varicose veins are often caused by a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency or CVI. This condition occurs when tiny valves inside the vessels wear out or become damaged over time. The damage allows blood to pool in the veins of the lower legs, leading to vein swelling and varicosity. An in-office vein screening can detect CVI and help your physician determine the best type of treatment for your condition.
