Chronic Venous Insufficiency


Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive medical condition that worsens over time and affects the veins and vessels in the leg that carry oxygen-poor blood back toward the heart.

If not treated, Chronic Venous Insufficiency can lead to spider veins, varicose veins, leg swelling, cramping and restless legs and non-healing wounds. The following minimally invasive treatment options are performed in a number of our centers for the management of CVI:

  • Ultrasound evaluation
  • Endovascular thermal ablation
