Why Live With Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are very common these days.  Many times they can be very painful and, if not treated, they can also be harmful.  Fortunately, there is a safe and effective process to treat varicose veins.  To learn more, call our office to set up your Free Consultation.

Varicose Vein Treatment Process

Step 1: VNUS Closure

This procedure is an FDA-approved alternative to the traditional and invasive painful vein stripping surgery. During the VNUS Closure™ Therapy, a thin catheter is guided using ultrasound into the insufficient or diseased vein through a tiny opening. The catheter then delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy directly to the wall of the damaged vein. As the catheter is then slowly withdrawn as the damaged vein is heated and seals shut.  Each treatment lasts from approximately 2-4 minutes!  Unlike the old method of vein stripping, this in-office treatment is quick and virtually pain-free. Most patients return to normal activity within a few days.  Patients on blood thinning prescriptions need not stop their medication.  You do not need to “fast” for this venous procedure.  Be pain free today, call to set up a consultation.

VNUS Closure™ offers many benefits over vein stripping:
. Little to no bruising or scarring
. In-office procedure
. Very little down time. Resume normal activity in  1-2 days
. Quick relief of your symtoms
. Local or regional anesthesia used
. Minimally invasive; not a surgical procedure

Step 2: Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy & Endovenous Chemical Ablation (EVCA)

This technique uses ultrasound technology to guide the precise placement of injections needed to treat larger varicosities. It is extremely effective because the solution is delivered to the exact source of venous reflux.

There are many benefits to Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy and EVCA:

  • Local anesthesia only
  • Down time is essentially zero
  • Extremely effective and targeted therapy
  • No scarring

Step 3: Micro-Incision Phlebectomy

This procedure utilizes micro punctures through the skin to grasp “grape” like varicosities that continue to bulge after VNUS therapy has been utilized.

Benefits of phlectomy include:
. Complete resolution of unsitely varicose veins
. Local or regional anesthesia only
. Office procedure with quick recovery time, often 2-3 days.
. Minimal scarring

Step 4: Sclerotherapy

This procedure is most often used to treat visible spider/reticular veins and small varicose veins near the surface of the skin. A painless sclerosant is injected into the veins, causing them to shrink, close off and eventually disappear. Although two to five treatments are often needed, the results are long-lasting.

Advantages of  sclerotherapy include:

  • Zero downtime
  • Effective long term results
  • No scarring
  • Pleasing cosmetic results
