Management of Varicose Veins

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD]

Guest: Newton B. Neidert, M.D.

Varicose veins are quite common and for most, they’re a minor nuisance. However, for some individuals, they have the potential to be much more than a cosmetic health problem. They can lead to a variety of symptoms including skin discoloration, discomfort, extremity swelling and occasionally skin ulceration. Fortunately, there have been numerous advances in the management of varicose veins and in this podcast, I’ll discuss these advances with interventional radiologist, Newton B. Neidert, M.D., from the Mayo Clinic. We’ll discuss who’s at risk for varicose veins, typical symptoms patients experience and the conservative as well as more invasive treatment options.
