father-son-young-oldMany of our young patients wonder, “Am I too young to have my veins treated?” At the Vein Clinic of Greater Kansas City, we hear this question often, and the short answer is: no!

If you have been postponing treatment because you’re waiting for your vein problems to improve on their own–or get “bad enough” to treat–it’s time to stop waiting!

Why Treat Vein Problems Now?

Maybe your career requires long hours on your feet, such as standing at a podium delivering lectures to your students or tending to your patients on a long nursing shift. You may have only noticed minor visible veins at first, but over time, you started to notice that your legs felt heavier and you experienced more aching and swelling.


Vein issues are progressive, and ignoring them can lead to more problems and increased pain over time. The good news is that the Vein Clinic of Greater Kansas City offers minimally invasive procedures that can erase 90% of your problem veins after just a few treatments.

Many patients are surprised to learn that insurance covers some procedures. Our experienced, compassionate staff are available to answer all of your questions and put you at ease during your consultation and treatment.

An Important Note:

While age is not a factor in screening patients for vein treatment, mobility is a factor. Patients must be able to walk on their own when they come into the clinic for treatment.
