    I don't know if you looked at the grape seed ex info and venous insufficiency but the spider veins on my knee areas are very faint...and I've had them for maybe 30 yrs.

This appears to be a major vein to me not knowing much about it but inside of knee just above and across the knee ..seems like it might be a major deal and have some thing to do with my femoral artery...(don't know and not sure I want to...squimeeish)

    For some reason --I hate this gory stuff) to me, also seems consultation- then wear support for three monthes then do the deed...

    The idea of killing a major blood supply in my leg is pretty unappealing to me --not sure how that cannot have dire conseqences...--

    But thank you I will for sure research your suggestion along with all other info from Dr. Internet--aside the from the 90% crap Dr. Internet puts out ...(similar to regular Dr.'s) You can find the correct info, if persistent and committed-Thank you very much- it is incredibly appreciated by me....
    I've never heard of cardiologists doing this stuff-- here it is always a vascular surgeon. It makes no sense that cardiologists are doing this -- first off, most cardiologists are not surgeons anyway; maybe these guys are cardiovascular surgeons?

    Are you considering doing this because of the appearance of the veins? I woudn't have bothered if I had been only concerned about that. Mine were painful and in danger of clots forming, which can break loose and travel to the lungs or brain, both of which are frequently fatal.
