Patient Info


 

Our Patient Always Come First

Dr. Wieters and the entire staff of The Vein Center are committed EXCLUSIVELY to the treatment of Varicose Veins and Venous Disease of the lower extremities. Our entire practice is devoted SOLELY to the treatment of Veins and Vein Related Problems. Our unique Specialty Practice is focused at the highest level on Quality Patient Care. Our patient’s best interest is the only interest considered.

 

Venous Disease

More than 30 million Americans suffer from Venous Disease, including Varicose Veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency. It is estimated that 33% of women will have Chronic Venous Disease as compared to less than 20% of men. The discomfort and disability is usually progressive, with the spectrum of Venous Disease presentation ranging from simple spider veins to varicose veins to venous ulcerations.

 

Feel and Look Better

Knowing that you want to feel and look better, The Vein Center offers treatment options that are as EFFICIENT as they are EFFECTIVE. You want a treatment that successfully eliminates the problem at its source, but you don’t want to undergo invasive surgery that is often more uncomfortable and debilitating than the condition itself. Utilizing the most advanced medical techniques, The Vein Center offers state-of-the-art minimally invasive procedures requiring little, if any, recovery or downtime. Since our entire practice is devoted to the treatment of vein related problems we never treat only the symptoms, but rather address the underlying cause of the symptoms, resulting in a lasting improvement as compared to only a temporary one.
