Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that you can see just under the surface of the skin. Painful Varicose veins can be a symptom of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). This is a condition that develops when the valves that usually keep blood flowing out of your legs become damaged or diseased.

Symptoms may Include:

  • Disfigurement (skin changes and skin ulcers)
  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Pain, swelling (swollen limbs)

However, interventional radiologists at SIH Memorial Hospital of Carbondale and SIH Herrin Hospital offer Venefit, a fast and painless way to treat the condition. Learn more about treatment — and check out some of the questions our patients have asked us about Varicose veins.
