Should you have your varicose veins treated ?

Varicose veins can result in complications but no one should have them treated with the misconception that it is a potentially fatal condition. Beware of aggressive marketing techniques for any medical treatment like the Varicose Veins Treatment. It may be an indication that their intent is not in the best interest of the patient. The Alaska Center for Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (AKCVLM) accepts all insurance plans including Medicare. The Center has the lowest self-pay options for vein treatment in Anchorage, Alaska.
