Are varicose veins a cosmetic issue or a medical problem?

One of the common misconceptions of varicose vein disease is that it is a cosmetic problem. It is not a cosmetic problem. It is a medical problem. We do a medical assessment for it. The treatment is a medical treatment and it is covered by medical insurances including medicare. So we’re very careful to do our assessments and make sure it's medically indicated and medically necessary. But vein treatment is a medical treatment.
