Do you have bulging varicose veins or experience achy or restless legs, swelling of the legs and ankles, spider or varicose veins? If so, you may be at risk for venous disease. 

Varicose veins aren’t only a cosmetic concern. Left untreated, varicose veins may lead to discoloration, ulcers and sclerosis or hardening of the veins. In addition, spider veins are small nests of veins just under your skin. Many people with spider veins also have varicose veins. Spider veins may be difficult to treat, but with a combination of treatments, you’re likely to see improvements. 

Our CoxHealth physicians are the most experienced vascular specialists in Springfield. They offer comprehensive diagnosis and leading-edge treatments for all diseases of the arteries, veins and lymph vessels, including the latest and most effective spider and varicose vein treatments. 

Our clinic is staffed by three board-certified and fellowship-trained vascular surgeons and a vascular fellowship-trained internal medicine physician, who together have more than 80 years of experience. They, along with our midlevel providers, all of whom have advance training in the treatment of varicose and spider veins, provide exceptional, personalized care. 

There are several treatment options for varicose and spider veins. Your physician will recommend the best treatment for you based on your symptoms, physical exam and ultrasound report.
