Varicose veins are swollen, gnarled veins most frequently occurring in the legs, ankles and feet caused by a condition known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux, in which blood circulating through the lower limbs does not properly return.
Spider veins are those unwanted blood vessels that make their appearance on our skin. They are small, often tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin surface that frequently resemble spider webs or tree branches.
A problem in the arterial system is called arterial disease. Our focus mainly will be: Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), Carotid Artery Disease (Stroke), Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (Screening & Follow-Up).
A problem in the venous system is called venous disease. Here we will focus primarily on: Varicose Veins, Spider Veins, Leg Ulcers, Phlebitis (blood clot)
Your vascular system has two major systems of vessels which are your arteries and your veins. While similar they are vastly different.
