Ah, spring in the Puget Sound region. Visions of warm days, shorts and skirts and being self-conscious about varicose veins may be dancing in your head. Is there anything you can do?

Some of us wear shorts and skirts anyway, ignoring furtive glances or curious comments, while others just hide their veins under hose or pants. A third option is available: treatment.

Whether you’ve got little red, flat spider veins, big, blue bulging varicose veins, or something in between, you’ve got the same problem – just of a different magnitude. Spider veins and varicose veins occur in the legs when the one-way valves in the blood vessels no longer work right, which lets blood collect in the veins instead of flowing back to the heart. This makes the veins widen, often becoming unsightly and uncomfortable. Most commonly varicose veins near the skin surface are caused by leaky valves in veins deeper in the leg. Untreated, varicose veins typically worsen over time.

On a daily basis, we see patients who are seeking treatment for hardening of the arteries, typically in the legs or neck (PAD-peripheral arterial disease); weakening of the main artery in the abdomen (AAA-abdominal aortic aneurysm); and varicose veins. In each case, there are traditional ways of being treated (what we call “Open” Vascular Surgery) as well as innovative alternatives (what we call “Endovascular” Surgery).

How do we arrive at our recommenda...

The most awful experience I've ever had with a physician - and I am nearly 60 years old. Doc was arrogant, borderline rude.

Great provider - I felt good after for the help given.

Good experience with MD who was knowledgeable & answered my questions.


The Dr was very helpful, he spoke to the desk about the appointments

Dr. Lange is awesome.

If someone I know needs to see a Dr. I would tell them to talk to Dr. Lange if it's in his field

Very well done. Thank you.

Excellent experience with Dr. Lange.

Dr Lange took the time to explain my medical condition in great detail and patiently answered all of my questions.

I have simple issue, good explanation, excellent soliciting and answering questions. Even though Dr is a busy man, did not seemed rushed

For the record I was simply there to have my veins/arteries checked out to see if there was anything that might be contributing to the lymphatic problems/edema I have been having. The outcome was apparently fine so I am now waiting to hear from my primary care physician as to what to do next since this condition is unusual and new and needs to be corrected. Dr. Lange suggested support hose however that doesn't address the root of the problem and I want the issue resolved not simply managed.


He is a great & friendly dr.
