Vein problems develop in all age groups and affect about 25 percent of women and 15 percent of men for a total of about 25-40 million people in the United States. Patients may experience leg fatigue or heaviness, burning and swelling with more serious conditions or simply have an unsightly appearance. The good news is that there is relief for the discomfort and appearance of most unsightly veins.

The Vein Center is a one-stop center for patients where they can receive everything they need from products like compression stockings and creams to venous ultrasounds, treatments and surgeries. The Vein Center is staffed by Vascular Surgeon and former varicose vein sufferer, Dr. Steven Hamar. The most common vein problems Dr. Hamar treats are varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency, veins that are not transferring blood properly.

The first step for anyone wanting to treat vein problems is an evaluation which may include an ultrasound to determine the source of the problem. Some patients can be helped through non-surgical approaches such as wearing support hose, using prescribed creams and medications, and other topical approaches. Through the Vein Center, Dr. Hamar offers these conservative treatment options as well as surgical procedures that include sclerotherapy, endovenous closure, stripping and TRIVEX® for varicose veins.
