Vein Disorders In Sioux Falls and Watertown, SD and Sioux City IA

The expert team at Physicians Veins Clinic specializes in treating vein disorders in Sioux Falls, SD. Vein disorders are quite common, affecting about 15 percent of the adult population. While mild vein disease may not be a problem, or only a cosmetic problem for patients, it can worsen into crippling and chronic venous insufficiency.

Vein diseases and disorders are caused when blood doesn’t flow properly through the vein, back to the heart. The pooling of blood causes the vein to swell, leading to discoloration and discomfort. Larger veins become varicose veins, while smaller veins are known as spider veins, which are our most commonly seen vein disorders in Sioux Falls, SD.

Varicose veins often appear as blue or purple discolorations under the skin’s surface, usually on the legs. They come in all shapes and sizes, and they affect millions of people around the world. Factors contributing to varicose veins include heredity, aging, standing for prolonged periods, pregnancy, weight gain, and leg injury or trauma.

Spider veins are tiny blood vessels under the skin which can appear on legs, thighs, ankles, or in some cases, the face. They’re called spider veins because they can look like spider webs, with their short, jagged lines. Spider veins can be caused by the backup of blood from larger veins, as well as age, obesity, hormonal changes, sun exposure, injuries, prolonged standing, and hereditary factors.
