Why should I choose Memorial
Following the growing awareness among physicians and patients for
the need for proper vein treatments, in recent years a growing number

include dermatologists, internists, cardio-vascular surgeons, gynecologists
and even physicians of other specialties. This is not the case
of the Memorial Vein center. Our advantage lies in the unparalleled
vein related experience and dedication to treating veins, whether
for medically indicated or cosmetic issues. We use state of the
art procedures, advanced technology, and superior service to achieve

How can I prevent varicose and spider veins?
Not all varicose and spider veins can be prevented. But some actions
can reduce your chances of getting new varicose and spider veins.
- Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and to limit
spider veins on the face.
- Control your weight to avoid increase pressure in the abdomen.
Added weight increases pressure in leg veins.
- Avoid tight clothing that constricts your waist, groin, or legs.
Such clothing can also cause increased pressure in the leg veins.
- Elevate your legs when resting.
- If your occupation requires you to sit or stand many hours,
wear elastic support stockings. It is important that the elastic
stockings are of the graduate compression type.
Do insurance companies cover the costs of treatment?
We will determine whether the symptoms, the underlying problem
and the proposed treatment are "medically necessary" or
cosmetic in nature. If your condition is deemed "medically
necessary," the treatment may be covered.
