Welcome To Washington Vein Specialists
Varicose veins and spider veins are now easily treated with minimally invasive non-surgical outpatient procedures with little risk and much better cosmetic results. Typical procedures last between 30 minutes and 45 minutes, are done with just a small amount local anesthetic (novocaine) and NO INCISIONS. There is almost no down time after the procedure with most resuming normal activity the same day. Patients can drive themselves to and from the procedures as there is no sedation and they can return to work immediately after the procedure.
Patients walk in for their procedures and walk out. We treat a variety of patients with venous disease. The typical symptoms we see and treat are bulging varicose veins, spider veins, heavy tired legs, leg swelling, leg pain, aching legs, and a burning sensation in the legs.
