Vein Disorders

Are You Tired of Achy Legs, Varicose Veins or Spider Veins?

If you are experiencing leg discomfort, swelling, restlessness or varicose veins, these symptoms can be signs of chronic venous reflux disease. Vein Specialist Center of Grass Valley specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic venous reflux that affects millions of men and women. Venous reflux disease is a progressive medical condition that can become increasingly uncomfortable, debilitating and unattractive over time. Dr. Maldonado has extensive expertise in the treatment of venous reflux, varicose veins and spider veins.

Whether you are suffering from discomfort that is interfering with your everyday activities or simply aren’t happy with the appearance of your legs, Dr. Maldonado can help you get legs that look and feel better quickly and easily.


Venous reflux can manifest itself in many ways, with varicose vein formation signaling early stage disease. It is a progressive condition and therefore may worsen over time if left untreated.

Common symptoms can include: 

  •  Achy, Fatigued or Weak Legs (especially after prolonged standing or sitting)
  • Burning or Itchy Legs
  • Numbness 
  • Restlessness

An initial consultation will provide us with a full evaluation of your problem areas for proper diagnosis and treatment planning. We may require ultrasound examination if we suspect underlying venous disease to accurately visualize the diseased veins and any sources of reflux. We offer non-surgical, in-office procedures, such as Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy, and Sclerotherapy to resolve discomfort quickly and effectively while restoring the appearance of legs, with no recovery period or disruption to your daily routine!

Diagnosing Venous Reflux & Vein Disorders

Vein Specialist Center of Grass Valley uses ultrasound mapping to provide a clear picture of the patient’s venous anatomy and blood flow, and to highlight refluxing vein segments. Both the deep venous system and superficial venous system will be scanned to ensure there is no evidence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and provide a thorough scan of all superficial veins that could be susceptible to reflux. Because varicose veins and venous reflux will not resolve on their own, and can lead to other more serious vein diseases, prompt and effective medical treatment for varicose veins is essential. Fortunately, early diagnosis and treatment of vein disease can stop the disease from progressing, and can help to ease the painful and aesthetically undesirable symptoms associated with these conditions.
