Welcome To The Brazos Vein Institute!

Welcome to The Brazos Vein Institute – a service line offered by the physicians at Central Texas Heart Center. The Brazos Vein Institute offers state-of-the-art non-surgical outpatient treatment options for varicose veins and venous insufficiency or reflux. We use radiofrequency technology to eliminate the source of discomfort in the legs that can limit your activities and lifestyle in order to help you get “back on your feet.”

Symptoms of venous disease or venous insufficiency include the following:

  •  Varicose veins and spider veins
  •  Burning or itching of the skin
  •  Leg or ankle swelling (edema)
  •  Poor or slow healing leg wounds (ulcers)
  •  Leg heaviness
  •  Skin color and texture changes
  •  Restless legs
  •  Pain, aching, or cramping

 
Over 80 million people in the United States suffer from some form of venous reflux disease. The most visible result of venous reflux disease are unslightly varicose veins. Varicose veins are often mistakenly thought to be only a cosmetic condition when, in fact, they are usually a symptom of venous insufficiency. This condition progressively damages the valves of the large veins and disfigures the leg(s) in addition to causing symptoms which can begin to affect and limit one’s lifestyle. Even without symptoms, cosmetic treatment is also an option and can be aimed at treating unattractive leg veins and varicosities.
 
Medically necessary treatment options* are covered by 95% of insurance companies. We are participating providers with most insurance carriers including Scott and White. Please call to schedule an appointment if you suffer from varicose veins or any of the symptoms described above.
