Yes, but the difference is not as great as you might think. You may be surprised to learn that 55% of women will suffer from varicose veins, compared to 45% of men. (stat from covidien website: “42% of men are expected to develop varicose veins by the time they reach their 60s”) And, as educational programs increase awareness of how simple it is to treat vein disorders, more men will start seeking treatment and the % of men compared to women will increase. Today, 30+ million suffer with varicose veins and leg pain! It’s very common. Post by Dr. Scott Hannum, Vascular Clinic .

Who needs to see a vascular surgeon?
A vascular surgeon is a highly trained physician who manages patients with all forms of vascular disease, so almost any patient might have occasion to see such a specialist. This includes:
Vascular surgeons are the only professionals who can offer all forms of treatment to this wide-ranging group of patients.
- Patients with aneurysms in almost any location in the chest, abdomen, or extremities.
- Patients with varicose veins, spider veins, or leg ulcers caused by venous disease.
- Patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), whether symptoms are minor or more threatening to the leg.
- Many patients with carotid disease or blockage will see a vascular surgeon for stroke prevention and treatment.
- Patients with kidney failure require dialysis access procedures, also provided by vascular surgeons.
