Did you know that more than 25 million Americans suffer from symptomatic vein disorders? That's more than the number of people who suffer from heart disease! What's more, the same vein disorders which cause varicose veins and spider veins, can also cause much worse conditions like chronic venous stasis and even venous ulcers.
There is a misconception that varicose veins are a cosmetic problem only. In fact, that is not always the case. Varicose veins and spider veins are often just a symptom of a larger problem called venous insufficiency. And if left untreated, the disease often progresses, bringing with it a series of worsening clinical problems.
The San Francisco Vein Center is dedicated to helping people with vein disorders in the Bay Area, specifically, San Mateo and San Francisco.
