Varicose Veins
An_257571 posted:
I'm researching treatment for my varicose veins. Considering endogenous laser treatment. Has anyone else had this procedure? Is it best done at a dermatologist's office, or in one of the specialty vein clinics? My insurance won't pay for it either way, but I want it to be safe and to compare costs.
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear An_257571,
In general, I encourage my patients to check in with a vascular surgeon-or dermatologist- who deals with varicose veins in general-as opposed to someone who just does a particular therapy. There are many different approaches to varicose veins (laser, ultrasound, injections, surgery)-and I think it's ideal to see someone who does all of the procedures-and can advise you which approach is best for you.
Good luck,
Mary Jane

Thanks, Mary Jane. I will check in with a dermatologist or vascular surgeon first.
