Venous Ulcer

VENOUS ULCER OVERVIEW
Chronic Venous Insufficiency

The following will explain why we get ulcers on our lower extremities (legs).


When our veins start malfunctioning, a series of events start happening. First we see the small "spider veins" then they become larger veins called Varicose Veins. Later on, the skin may change color and become much darker and harder.


If left untreated this disease (called Chronic Venous Insufficiency) will progress to form openings in your lower legs and feet, called venous ulcers.


Treatment of this condition is not simple, requires experience and has to be done in steps. All of this will be explained to you when you come to our office for a consultation.


We have also included a few photos to show you some of the many ulcers we have treated so successfully for over 25 years.
