WHAT IS PCS?
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
We all know about varicose veins in the legs, but did you know they can develop in the abdomen and pelvis too? They can, and when they do it results in chronic pelvic pain and develops into a medical condition called Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS). The syndrome occurs mostly in women, although research is currently being done to understand whether pelvic pain in men is caused by PCS.
It is important to accurately diagnose and treat PCS because national studies show that nearly 30 percent of women in the US suffer from chronic pelvic pain. The doctors at USA Vascular Centers treat PCS with minimally invasive, in-office treatments that make it easier, and less painful, for women to find relief.
