Varicose and venous insufficiency occurs when valves within the veins malfunction. While vein disease might simply be a cosmetic concern for some people, for many others varicose veins cause aching leg pain, cramping, burning, itching, or “restless” legs that interfere with daily life and a good night’s sleep. In some cases, venous insufficiency may lead to severe swelling, skin injury, and even chronic leg ulcers.

Saratoga Cardiology Associates is a practice of St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates.
