Venous Insufficiency

Veins and arteries help the blood circulate around the body.  "Venous Insufficiency" is a disease where blood pools and increases pressure within the veins. When left untreated, venous disease can cause varicose veins, lower leg swelling, ulcers, pain, and wounds. Ulcers and wounds caused by venous insufficiency are commonly infected and are difficult to heal.  The Mobile Vascular Physicians team are experts at diagnosing and treating venous insufficiency.
