The Duke Vein Clinic focuses on the causes of varicose veins or leg pain to best treat your medical and aesthetic concerns. We are committed to your complete circulatory health through comprehensive screening and treatment.
Comprehensive Care for Varicose Veins
Whether your condition is cosmetic or complex -- from spider veins to phlebitis to challenging leg pain or skin ulcers -- we have the experience, resources, and technology to help. We develop a treatment plan to meet your specific goals. Our vascular experts use specialized imaging to capture pictures of the blood flow in your legs in order to make recommendations for treating your condition and improving your symptoms.
We recognize that vein conditions are often associated with quality of life. Many vein clinics treat varicose or spider veins without medical qualifications and experience; the emphasis is on cosmetic appearance. Our vascular experts work with you to review your symptoms and assess and treat your overall circulatory health, in addition to treating your aesthetic concerns.
Duke Health offers locations throughout the Triangle. Find one near you.
We use ultrasound technology to see beyond the superficial images of the veins near the skin and better understand your overall vein health and blood flow. Our duplex ultrasound is designed to provide clear images of veins and blood flow. These images help us determine the most effective treatment for you.
In addition, Duke University Hospital is proud to be named the best hospital in North Carolina, and nationally ranked in 10 adult and 9 pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report for 2019–2020.
Why Choose Duke for Your Varicose Vein Treatment
We do a comprehensive review of your symptoms to understand the source of your concern. Cosmetic issues such as varicose veins may be caused by more complex underlying factors.
Leaders in Vascular Research
In addition to participating in ongoing training and research, our vascular experts have helped write new treatment guidelines for the National Society of Vascular Surgeons, the organization that sets professional care standards.
Pioneers in New Technology
Our vein doctors embrace duplex ultrasound innovations as well as the use of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to create detailed pictures of veins and arteries. We help vein patients by deploying laser and radiofrequency technologies to close long veins rather than use the outdated, less-effective process of stripping veins from your legs.
Treating Both Cosmetic and Complex Circulatory Conditions
Our physicians successfully treat every type of circulatory disease. We recommend the right treatment course for you, based on our high-tech imaging for deep vein analysis as well as our experience in managing outpatient care for varicose or spider veins.
