Wed, May 10, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
Varicose veins are often associated with skin discoloration, inflammation, pigmentation, or hardening of the surrounding tissues. They may be a cosmetic concern because of their darkened appearance. They usually occur in the legs and feet because standing and walking increases the pressure in the veins of the lower half of the body. Dr. Marvin Morris, vascular surgeon, Baystate Vascular Services, will discuss the types of veins in your body, contribution factors for varicose veins, symptoms of varicose veins, and the most effective treatments.
