We Help You Overcome Pain & Embarrassment With Your Legs

Do You Experience…

If so, you may be eligible for non-invasive varicose vein treatment.

What is Venous Reflux?

Do you have significant bulgy veins that cause an unsightly appearance and sometimes persistent tingling pain?
You may be suffering from vein disease. Venous reflux, also called Chronic Venous Insufficiency, happens when your veins can no longer circulate blood properly due to a lack of elasticity.

Five stars for Dr. Kowalski and his team. My bilateral inguinal hernia surgery went very well, no complications and very little pain. I am on my way to complete recovery. Thank you Dr. Kowalski for your excellent skills and experience! Robert Kucharski
My experience was very positive. No long waiting like other doctor's offices. A+ to whoever thinks of going here.
I couldn't say nicer things about both Dr. Kowalski and his office staff. First, Dr. Kowalski is very kind and professional. He explains the process in advance very clearly so you know what to expect on the actual day of the procedure. Then, upon your arrival, you are escorted into the room, prepped by his very nice assistant; and then handed two rubber balls with which to squeeze as a distraction should you feel pain. While definitely happy that they were there as my security blanket, I really only needed them for a couple pinches, nothing worth shedding tears over. What I especially liked is that Dr. Kowalski would count one, two, three as a head's up that you may feel a pinch or pressure. You are told step by step what to expect as it is happening. When done, they put the support hose on my leg, added a little wrapping and the entire procedure was over within a half hour. As I checked out, the staff was so sweet. They always have a smile for you, plus the patience of a Saint. I was late for two of my three appointments, and each time they were so kind about it, and took me in anyway. Now that is accommodating. And the best part, my legs look gorgeous. No more ugly veins, no more throbbing or pain, and I'm back to exercising, walking and living life unencumbered by leg pain. Thank you Dr. Kowalski and staff.

I've seen Dr. Kowalski twice now for inguinal hernia repairs. His humor, care, skill, and expertise made me feel incredibly comfortable with the procedures. His upgrade to Robotic Assisted surgeries has only improved his practice. You're in great hands with Chris.

Great staff, professional service. Helpful and accommodating. Doctor and staff are a pleasure to deal with.
I have been having terrible pain in my legs especially at night. My one leg was swollen and a bit red.I looked on Google and found Dr. Kowalski.As soon as I entered the office, I was greeted with a welcome smile by one of his staff.Everyone was so friendly, it made me feel at ease. Then when Dr. Kowalski came in he listed to my concerns. He answered all of my questions. He made me feel like he really appreciated me and really wanted me to feel better. I was in and out very quickly.I was set up that day by the staff to have an ultrasound at the office. Dr. Kowalski told me what compression socks to get on Amazon.It has been a week since my visit and now I am sleeping through the night without any leg pain. Thank you Dr. Kowalski and staff. I will see you in a few weeks.Sheila S

The receptionist at Dr. Kowalski’s office called me when the office had a cancellation so that I could see the doctor a few weeks earlier than I was originally scheduled. I appreciated the call to reschedule my appointment.Dr. Kowalski had two suggestions for me. One was that I get a certain brand of compression knee-highs. Immediately, these socks made my legs feel so much better. I’ll be able to present my receipt for the socks to my insurance company because the doctor wrote a prescription for them. The second suggestion was to have a simple procedure to eliminate my problem surface veins, which Dr. Kowalski will complete after an ultrasound. I’m confident that Dr. Kowalski can successfully solve my vein problems. Also, the receptionist gave me a pamphlet explaining the procedure and she explained the details to me.

Sarah Bernatowicz, the technician in Dr. Kowalski practice, is very through and nice. She warms up gel for ultrasound and makes the experience comfortable. All the staff a nice and caring.
All I can say, is that I am so grateful to have found Dr. Kowalski. He is a gifted surgeon. The procedures that he has done for me in his vein center have been such a blessing to me. At my age, I didn’t think there would be anything that could help my tired, ugly legs. Well, he knew and did!! The procedures were painless and renewed my ability to enjoy life. His office is friendly and Sarah is his wonderful assistant. They work so well together…. And, my procedures were pleasant experiences.

Why You Shouldn't Leave Your Varicose Veins Untreated

While varicose veins are often seen as a cosmetic concern, it’s important to recognize that without treatment, they can pose serious health risks.
  • Persistent Pain: Varicose veins contribute to venous reflux, disrupting proper blood circulation and leading to diminished oxygen delivery, resulting in muscle cramps and localized pain.
  • Risk of Infection: Venous conditions may lead to the development of leg ulcers, increasing susceptibility to skin lesions and potential complications due to exposure to bacteria.
  • Bleeding: Varicose veins, located closer to the skin’s surface and prone to inflammation, are more susceptible to injury and subsequent bleeding incidents.
  • Swelling: Hindered blood flow within the legs can cause reflux, resulting in swelling and discomfort due to inefficient circulation.
  • Blood Clots: Blood pooling in the legs heightens the risk of clot formation, which could dislodge and travel through the bloodstream, potentially triggering serious conditions such as deep vein thrombosis.

Early intervention is crucial when it comes to addressing varicose veins. Do not postpone seeking treatment.

Most frequent questions and answers

In your leg, you have two sets of veins. They are called deep veins and superficial veins.

Deep veins are in the deeper part of the leg where the muscles are, and superficial veins are right under the skin.

In a normal person, the blood circulates from the feet toward the heart in both veins.

When someone has venous insufficiency, the blood will go up the deep veins and back into the superficial vein.

The blood will start pooling in the superficial veins.

Since the superficial veins are closest to the skin, they will bulge and create varicose veins. They are often bluish or purple.

Spider Veins are essentially a smaller version of varicose veins. They are red, purple, and blue vessels that are also twisted and turning. They are most often seen on the legs, chest, or face.

No. Varicose veins can occur deeper in the leg, where one can’t see them. Varicose veins are classified under the spectrum of venous insufficiency disease.

Venous insufficiency disease causes leg discomfort, swelling of the ankles and leg, itching, and weariness. Other signs and symptoms may be prickling, cramping, aching, and heaviness of the lower limbs after prolonged standing.

Keep an eye out for these symptoms besides simply visible veins.

In short, no. Exercise and compression stockings may help reduce some of the symptoms of varicose veins, but usually, only medical treatment can eliminate a varicose vein.

Progression of varicose veins can be dangerous as they may later become venous ulcerations. When left without treatment, complications may include rashes, infections, bleeding, sores, and blood clots.

In rare cases, varicose veins can cause deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, which is life-threatening.

1) Consult – We start you with a consultation where you will be listened to and encounter a friendly staff that will ensure you get the best care. On the first visit, that care will come from our expertly trained team, including Dr. Kowalski and an ultrasonographer.

2) Ultra Sound – After the consult, we move on to the assessment, providing you with an accurate diagnosis. You will get the same-day ultrasound and results on-site while you see the provider. This will get you back to life as swiftly as possible.

3) Treatment Plan – After we conclude our assessment, we will provide you with a treatment plan.

There are many different options, such as Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), sclerotherapy, pneumatic compression, and more. We will ensure you get the perfect customized treatment based on your needs and outcome goals.

It is normal to have some minor discomfort during the procedure. We will do everything we can to make this as relaxing and comfortable an experience as possible. After the procedure, patients may experience minor bruising or discomfort in the area of the treated vein, which normally resolves in 3-4 weeks. Overall, patients report minimal pain/discomfort and can go back to doing the things they love.

Patients usually return to work and activities on the very same day. Very little downtime is needed for our treatments.
