True story: In 1963, Albert Einstein was having lunch with his accountant and said, “The hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes.”

His accountant was a bit shocked, so he replied, “There is one thing more difficult, and that is your theory of relativity.”

“Oh, no,” Einstein retorted, ”that is easy.”

Then, Mrs. Einstein chirped in and said, “Yes, for you!”

Well, whether you think the income tax is easy to understand or not, everyone at Waterford Vein Institute of Hawaii agrees that venous insufficiency (vein disease or venous reflux) is very easy to understand, once you know how each of the symptoms can tax your leg’s energy.

Typically, these symptoms include painful, bulging varicose veins… unsightly spider veins… leg or ankle swelling… a “heavy” feeling in your legs… restless legs especially at night… open wounds or sores in your legs…. skin discoloration, or even texture changes.

In fact, Dr. Randy Waterford knows that vein disease is a progressive medical condition that most likely will get worse over time, that he can offer a customized treatment plan for every patient, and that most varicose vein procedures are covered by your insurance, including Medicare.
