Say goodbye to varicose veins

For many people, varicose veins are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort. Sometimes varicose veins lead to more serious problems.

Our speaker is Dr. Jie Mao, who has been treating varicose veins at BCH for more than 15 years. She’ll explain the causes of varicose veins and how they can lead to serious health problems. Then she’ll describe self-care measures and minimally invasive outpatient procedures that can help your legs look and feel better.
