Tri-State Vein is your complete varicose vein treatment center. The center opened January 2011, but Dr. Jenkins has been serving the tri-state area for the past 16 years.
Approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from superficial venous reflux disease. Traditionally, patients diagnosed with venous reflux would undergo vein stripping surgery. Now, patients can be treated with a minimally invasive and more comfortable alternative to painful vein stripping surgery.
