Are you experiencing constant aching and a feeling of tiredness in your legs? This may be caused by varicose veins. Approximately 50% of females and 20% of males are affected. Symptoms vary from spider veins to larger bulging veins. If left untreated, varicose veins may progress to swelling, ulceration and pigmentation.

Let us do the legwork! Visit our St. Albert clinic and we'll assess your medical history and conduct a brief information session, so that you understand your medical situation. We'll then perform a physical examination of your legs, and conduct a colour flow Doppler ultrasound mapping of your leg veins. After this, you'll be given an accurate diagnosis, based on the aforementioned criteria.
