Varicose vein disease affects people of all ages. At Iowa Vein Center, more than 16% of all the procedures are on patients over 65 years of age. The sclerotherapy or injection treatment for smaller veins or minor surgical procedures under local anesthesia for larger veins, minimize the risk and maximize the result with immediate discharge and re-assuming of activities immediately.
Patients are up and walking before they leave our office, and in most cases, are able to work or resume regular activities the next day. The discomfort is usually minimal with very little pre or post operative care required.
