Conservative Measures

A trial of conservative therapy, ranging from 6 to 12 weeks, is often required by insurance companies before we can treat your varicose veins. Conservative measures include graduated compression stockings, exercise, periodic leg elevation, and Unna boots. Medical grade compression stockings are often prescribed to control the painful symptoms of varicose veins and swelling in the legs. They are also required to aid in the healing process following vein treatment procedures. A consultation with Dr. Shapiro is necessary to determine the strength of the stocking needed to control your symptoms. We keep an ample supply in stock for our patients undergoing treatment, eliminating the need for an additional stop at the pharmacy.
