Many patients with venous problems can obtain symptomatic improvement with the use of compression stockings. The stockings compress the bulging veins and can reduce pain and swelling. This is a temporary solution and does not eliminate the problem, but can provide significant relief. These stockings come in various sizes and strengths and can be obtained in our office or in a surgical supply center. We keep a range of sizes in stock.
We also recommend compression therapy for about 1 week after any vein treatment.
