If you suffer from varicose and spider veins, you are not alone. It is estimated that nearly one in four people in this country experience some form of leg vein disorder during their lifetime.

Understanding the roles of exercise, diet, and hormones can minimize your risk and control progression; but if varicose veins are already a problem, modern techniques, including spider vein removal have made treatment of this common condition more effective and safer than ever before.
