Varicose vein treatment at Mission Health

[Narrator] Health Break is sponsored by Mission Health.

[Host] An estimated 50% of the population has varicose veins or some other vein disease. In addition to their cosmetic effects, these veins may cause life altering pain. Dr. Andy Brown from Mission Health describes how these veins can be removed.

[Dr. Brown] Minimally invasive treatments for varicose vein disease revolve around both thermal
and non-thermal techniques. Those treatments typically involve advanced technologies such as laser therapy to basically heat seal a dysfunctional vein beneath the skin surface. Usually takes less than an hour to do and that has minimal impact on their activities of daily living. Almost immediately they will see a difference in how their legs feel on a day to day basis. They're able to enjoy the activities that they like to do such as hiking and exercise.
