Leg Swelling due to Venous Insufficiency
Swelling, also referred to as edema, often occurs in the lower part of the leg around the ankle. For many patients, swelling is more prominent after sitting or standing for long periods of time. Swelling can be indicative of deep venous insufficiencies.
Treatment options for varicose veins include:
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT)
- Radiofrequency (RF) Ablation
- Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
