Duke’s experts work with you to review your vein symptoms and manage your overall vascular health. Duke focuses on finding the cause of varicose veins, other similar conditions, and any resulting leg pain so we can recommend the very best treatment for you.
Comprehensive Care for Varicose Veins
We recognize that vein conditions are often associated with quality of life. Many vein clinics treat varicose or spider veins without medical qualifications, and with the emphasis on cosmetic appearance alone. Whether your concerns are purely cosmetic or more complex -- from spider veins to phlebitis (vein inflammation) to challenging leg pain or skin ulcers -- we have the experience, resources, and technology to address all aspects of your vein condition and help you avoid serious complications like blood clots.
Duke Health offers locations throughout the Triangle. Find one near you.
We use ultrasound imaging and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to see your veins in detail and better understand your overall vein health and blood flow. Our duplex ultrasound is specifically designed for this type of imaging. These images help us determine the most effective treatment for you.
Duke University Hospital is proud of our team and the exceptional care they provide. They are why we are once again recognized as the best hospital in North Carolina, and nationally ranked in 11 adult and 9 pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report for 2020–2021.
Why Choose Duke for Your Varicose Vein Treatment
