You Don't Have to Live with Varicose Veins
If you're one of the more than 25 million Americans who suffer from uncomfortable and unsightly varicose veins, help is available from our experienced specialists at the Vein Center at Lowell General Hospital. Venous disease is an under-diagnosed and under-treated medical problem. Our goal is to educate and treat those with the condition and to restore healthy legs!

About Varicose Veins
Varicose veins can develop through a combination of weakened vein walls and faulty valves. Normal vein walls, which are usually very elastic and supple, can become weak and allow the recirculating blood to flow backward. Valves in these veins can also fail to function properly, allowing blood to pool and pressure to build. This damages veins, allowing them to become twisted, enlarged, and painful. Up to 40% of women and 25% of men are affected by this condition.
