Venous Disease

The Vascular Surgery team at the University of Michigan is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care for Venous Disease in the U-M Cardiovascular Center (CVC), our new state-of-the-art clinical building.

What is Venous Disease?

Venous disease describes a broad range of conditions including: varicose veins, deep venous thromboembolism (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency and other conditions impacting healthy circulation. The University of Michigan Vascular Surgery team consists of highly trained physicians with years of experience in treating all varieties of venous disease, regardless of complexity. Our specialists are dedicated to staying at the forefront of every advance for the benefit of each patient who we care for.

What are the symptoms of Venous Disease?

Patients can experience mild symptoms such as burning or cramping over varicose veins, or a heavy feeling in the legs from chronic venous insufficiency. They may also develop "thrombus" or clotting in one or more veins termed deep vein thrombosis when involving the veins within the limbs and superficial thrombophlebitis when involving one of the superficial veins. Ultrasound testing is performed to determine the presence or absence of venous thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, and chronic venous insufficiency.
