The treatment of varicose veins is covered by most health insurers. Physicians recognize that varicose veins can cause symptoms such as aching, swelling, and even skin damage of the lower leg. Because treatment is very effective and durable, the insurers understand that patients derive significant benefit from eliminating their varicose veins. Surprisingly, the treament is done exclusively in the office under local anesthesia, so there is no need to go to the hospital. You will be back doing normal activity the same day. Dr. Garth Rosenberg at Capitol Vein & Laser is a highly experienced vascular surgeon with added training in venous disease. He is active nationally and internationally educating other physicians on vein care. Free evaluations are available so you can get the right answers to your varicose and spider vein questions. http://www.mycvl.com.
