By age 50, 41% of women will suffer from varicose veins. Likewise, by the time they reach their 60s, 42% of men will suffer from venous insufficiency as well.

Types of Vein Conditions

There are two primary types of vein conditions—both of which are indicative of some level of underlying venous insufficiency. Spider veins are tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin’s surface that resemble spider webs, hence their name. Typically, they are red, blue or purple and are clearly visible on the thighs, lower legs and face. Varicose veins tend to be larger in diameter and are visibly bumpy or rope-like. Both types of vein conditions can produce physical symptoms—from leg pain and fatigue to itching, burning and nighttime restlessness. Only a comprehensive ultrasound scan can reveal what truly lies beneath your skin.

Varicose Veins

Often painful and unsightly, varicose veins are visibly bumpy or rope-like and may occur in almost any part of the leg—most often in the back of the calf or on the inside of the leg between the groin and the ankle. Varicose veins can be sometimes be debilitating, limit a person’s mobility, and affect their quality of life.

Common symptoms include:

  • leg pain
  • aching, or cramping
  • fatigued or heavy-feeling legs
  • itching/burning
  • swollen ankles
  • restless legs
  • ulcers (in severe cases)

Everyone was very nice, friendly and professional. All of my questions and concerns were answered. During the procedure, Dr. Meilman explained what he was doing, as well as, how the veins would respond and how they worked. (We also talked about Porsches!) I was totally at ease and felt very confident in him and his staff.”

—Edward

From a leg in pain with ropey, raised veins, to a leg in peace – not hot, not aching, and smooth as silk. I should have done it long ago!”

“The techs and physician were very pleasant, helpful and competent.
Appointments were on time. Phone follow-up was appreciated.
I had a good experience and seemingly good results.”

Kathleen

“Cannot ask for more! The staff was great and my treatment was excellent.”

James

“Everybody on staff were very nice and professional. The results are tremendous! I can actually lift my legs up and walk without difficulty. The difference is unbelieveable.”

Debbie

“My legs are not tired and I don’t have that ‘creepy feeling’.”

David

“I am most pleased by the fact that all the staff especially the doctor knew my name and who I am. The doctor, even after my procedure during the followups, checked in with me and remembered my long commute to Loudon County for work. I am just not a face or a co-pay, the patient-doctor relationship seems to really matter. That is what keeps you coming back if needed.”

Cheryl

“Fast and painless!”

Charmaine

“Everyone is welcoming. Experience was calm and staff kept me at ease — explained everything and answered all my questions. Staff is very professional.”

Teresa

“My experience with the doctor and his staff was excellent. Everyone was extremely friendly, professional, and committed to treating my legs with the highest level of care. I would absolutely recommend them to friends/family. And, my legs are looking very good for the first time in many years. Thank you so very, very much!”

Richard

“I had some very gnarly looking veins popping out all over my legs. The professionalism and care from the staff made my experience and all of my visits exceptional, even gave the staff a great cookie recipe. Would recommend this facility to anyone!”
