Varicose and spider veins are very common--in fact more than half of the population has them. But that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. While varicose and spider veins are primarily a cosmetic issue, they may be an indication of a more serious vascular issue. Doc Talk host Mike Schuh talks with the Director of the MedStar Health Vein Centers in Baltimore, vascular surgeon Dr. Maggie Arnold, about the difference between varicose and spider veins, their signs and symptoms and what happens during an evaluation. Learn about the various treatment options available and the importance of seeing a board-certified vascular surgeon for vein treatment. Over the next half hour, Mike and Dr. Arnold will cover everything you need to know about varicose and spider veins. Dr. Arnold sees patients at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, and MedStar Health Bel Air Medical Campus.
