Severe Venous Problems
When the valves in the veins of the leg become severely damaged, over time, more severe symptoms can result such as chronic swelling of the ankle and calf, skin discoloration and ulcers. These problems are chronic and difficult to treat. Often laser treatments of the underlying diseased veins can help. There are new improved treatment options that are very promising such as the new T.I.R.S. Technique (terminal interruption of reflux source) which offer greater hope in treating these difficult problems.
