Alessandra Puggioni, M.D.
YourVeins of Arizona
Fifty percent of people are affected by venous disorders such as spider and varicose veins, which can cause leg swelling and pain. Damaged vein valves allow blood to flow in the wrong direction, which can lead to cosmetically unacceptable or painful bulging veins. Risk factors include age, gender, family history and standing for prolonged periods. Celebrating her 10th year in the Valley, Alessandra Puggioni, M.D. is a vascular surgeon and five-time PHOENIX magazine Top Doctor recipient. Professionally trained in venous surgery in Honolulu, Hawaii and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, she is dedicated to change the lives of people suffering from undesired leg veins, pain, swelling, or unhealed ulcerations. Most procedures are performed in the office and require no general anesthesia or sedation with minimal recovery time.
