Treatment for painful or embarrassing spider veins and varicose veins is now available without the need for invasive vein surgery (or ‘vein stripping’). Virginia Vein Care, a leading vein treatment clinic near Washington, D.C., offers a range of minimally invasive, state-of-the-art alternatives to vein surgery, including RF closure and sclerotherapy.
Dr. Chris Rothstein is a highly respected Vascular and Interventional Radiologist. He is board certified and fellowship trained in minimally invasive imaging guided vein and artery procedures.
Dr. Lawrence J. Markovitz is a highly regarded Board Certified Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon with over 18 years of clinical experience. Unlike other D.C. area vein doctors.
At Virginia Vein Care we are following strict procedures to ensure your safety.
Varicose veins are swollen, bulging veins that protrude from the surface of the skin, often with a blue or purplish color. They commonly have a rope-like or cord-like appearance on the skin.
Spider veins are smaller, thread-like veins that occur near the surface of the skin and often appear on the legs or face. They can appear as red, purplish, or blue veins and often look like tree branches or spider webs with jagged edges that grow outward.
I went to Dr. Markovitz at Virginia Vein Care with the expectation that my large rope like veins in my leg would be reduced in size and pain. They have actually disappeared and the pain has gone away entirely. An unexpected outcome has been the feeling that a 5 lb. ankle weight has been removed from my leg. Also, many people have commented on how much thinner my leg looks.
I had a great experience. Everybody made sure that my time in the clinic was as pleasant as possible. All technicians, the office Manager and Dr. Markowitz were extremely helpful, listened to all my concerns and provided me with answers for every question. Nobody ever was in rush with me. If anything, they took extra time to look after me and my veins.
I had sclerotherapy several years before going to Virginia Vein Care. The results of my sclerotherapy at Virginia Vein Care were amazingly superior to previous results I had with sclerotherapy done elsewhere. I didn’t know that sclerotherapy could be this effective and improve my legs this much. My spider veins are completely gone. Their technique is great and I highly recommend their services.
Do you feel the constant urge to move your legs? Do you feel quite uncomfortable, never quite able to find the right way to sit or lay down? If so, you may be experiencing Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS).
RLS can be very uncomfortable and patients with this syndrome can often have trouble with sitting, sleeping, or traveling. You might also feel unusual sensations such as a crawling, tingling, or pulling sensation in your legs. This is why patients have the constant urge to move, because it temporarily relieves these symptoms.
Have your varicose veins started to become painful, hard to look at? Are you ready to consider treatment to help prevent them from getting worse?
While we say to always consult your doctor for any treatment recommendations, we wanted to highlight a few treatments that we at Virginia Vein Care believes you should try to avoid and, if recommended, then to seek a second opinion. These treatments are either unnecessarily painful or ineffective in treating the causes and appearance of varicose veins.
