Varicose veins are bulging, twisted, discolored veins that usually occur in the legs. Sometimes, they’re just an uncomfortable nuisance. At other times, they can develop into a more serious problem, causing leg pain and swelling.
At Henry Ford Health System, our specialists bring together expertise from several fields of medicine to diagnose and treat varicose veins. You receive exceptional care to manage your symptoms and help you get back to the activities you enjoy.

Henry Ford’s vascular disease specialists have expertise in the latest advances for varicose veins, spider veins, blood clots and related issues. We specialize in minimally invasive procedures that relieve pain and other symptoms and improve the appearance of varicose veins.
Our program offers:
- Seamless care focused on your needs: We work to understand what you’re experiencing and address all of your concerns. If you have symptoms such as leg swelling, our vascular specialists find the cause and, if it’s tied to blood vessels, provide treatment.
