Welcome to The Vein Center of San Diego

Vein disease affects millions of people everyday. Although often mistaken as a cosmetic problem, vein disease can produce clinical problems and significantly impact a person’s lifestyle. Of the 25 million Americans with venous insufficiency, approximately 7 million exhibit serious symptoms such as edema, skin changes and venous ulcers. It is estimated that 72% of women, and 42% of men, will experience varicose veins by the time they are in their 60s.
