What Are The Symptoms?

“We are delighted to offer our patients top treatment from recognized ‘top doctors’.”
“The root of the problem is abnormal valves in some of the veins that don’t stop backflow like they should. It affects how they look and how they perform their normal function, causing these kinds of symptoms. A qualified expert like the team here at Radiology of Indiana can help you identify the problem and fix it.

You and your doctor will determine if it’s right for you, and if it is, you’ll walk out of our office the same day as your procedure. It takes an hour or less, it doesn’t require general anesthesia and the technical success rate is 97 to 98%. For many of our patients, it’s a great option.”
