Unsightly veins, often greeted with as much joy as wrinkles, bring both cosmetic and physical problems. Genetics, hormones and trauma contribute to their appearance, but there are steps you can take to minimize their occurence and lessen discomfort.
Salem Vein Center
Vein treatments are performed on an outpatient basis at our Salem vein center location by Rick Pittman, MD, who is board-certified in Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, an important distinction in choosing a vein center. Our Salem Vein Center team has been working together for more than 20 years, providing patients with comprehensive, compassionate vein care.
Dr. Pittman and his team utilize the latest diagnostic tools and techniques for both teaching and treatment to get your veins healthy again and help you understand how to maintain that health. Elegant new technologies have almost completely replaced conventional vein stripping and the need for large incisions. Our improved treatments require no incisions and rapid return to normal activities. Treatment times are brief; most procedures require between 10-45 minutes.

Reticular veins (sometimes called Feeder Veins) are veins visible beneath the skin that do not usually protrude. These veins feed spider veins and usually have a connection to the deep venous system.
