More than 27 percent of American adults suffer some form of venous disorder, like varicose or spider veins. Some people seek treatment for visual improvement; many seek relief from pain or discomfort.
The first step to treating a venous disorder is to get a vein screening. Right now, Mercy is offering free vein screenings. This free visual inspection of your legs will indicate whether your condition can be treated with conservative measures (compression stockings) or corrective measures (scleropathy, laser treatment, ablation), or some combination.
