The Vein Center at YRMC

Staying healthy and active is important to you.  Don't let varicose veins, spider veins or non-healing wounds slow you down.

Spider and varicose veins can be unsightly and painful and both may be signs of a more serious condition, know as chronic venous insufficiency.

Chronic venous insufficiency, a condition that is more than just cosmetic, also indicates a risk for blood clotting in the deep veins of the leg, known as deep vein thrombosis - which strikes about one in 20 people and can increase your risk for stroke or other dangerous conditions.

Common symptoms include:
  • Aching or painful legs
  • Heavy, tired or fatigued legs
  • Swelling, cramping or restless legs
  • Itching, burning or throbbing
  • Changes to the skin
  • Wounds that won't heal (leg ulcers)

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about a referral to the Vein Center at YRMC, or call (928) 759-5890.
