Varicose veins are typically large and unsightly. The very small ones can
be treated with injections or lasers. The large ones are best treated
by a qualified vascular surgeon who may be able to obliterate them
the injections or, more likely, surgically.

Varicose veins are best evaluated by a general-vascular surgeon who specializes in them as the veins ceeding them need to be accessed to determine the proper treatment. This takes an evaluation by a properly equiped vascular lab. Treatment will depend on the veins and feeders involved.
