OUR TREATMENT



VenaCure EVLT


Endovenouus Laser Treatment (EVLT) procedure is a treatment alternative to surgical stripping of the diseased veins of the leg that cause varicose veins. A laser fiber is inserted through a small incision under ultrasound-guidance into the diseased vein. Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein, thereby eliminating the vein and its accompanying reflux. EVLT is performed using local anesthesia in our office.


Because treatment with VenaCure EVLT is minimally invasive and is catheter-based, it results in little to no scarring.  Compression hosiery suplements the treatment.


√  Up to 98% success rate.

√  Immediate relief of symptoms.

√  Return to normal activity Immediately –

     with little or no pain.




Radiofrequency Ablation

VNUS® Closure


The closure procedure is a treatment alternative to surgical stripping of the superficial veins of the leg.

A small catheter is inserted through a small needle stick under ultrasound-guidance into the diseased vein. Radiofrequency current is applied inside the vein causing the vein to collapse and ultimately completely seal shut, thereby eliminating the vein and its accompanying reflux.


This can be done on an outpatient surgical basis with

a quick return to normal activities. Compression

hosiery supplements the treatment.


√  Relief of symptoms

√  Resume normal activity within 1-2 days

√  Outpatient procedure

√  Local anesthesia

√  Good cosmetic outcome with minimal or no scarring,

     bruising or swelling








Ambulatory Microphlebectomy


Ambulatory Phlebectomy is removal of surface varicose veins through minor surgery, in the office using local anesthesia.  Phlebectomy is often combined with an operative procedure; especially Vena Cure EVLT or VNUS closure.


Incisions are small and cosmetic. Compression hosiery supplements the treatment.

  

√  No stitches

√  Minimal scarring

√  Long-lasting results






Injection Sclerotherapy


Sclerotherapy can be used to treat both varicose and spider veins. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. In response, the veins collapse, are reabsorbed, and no longer visible. Multiple sessions may be required. Compression hosiery supplements the treatment.






Laser Sclerotherapy


For multiple, small spider veins, office laser therapy is an effective treatment option. It is often used in conjunction with injection sclerotherapy. Treatment response varies per individual.







Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy


This is an in-office treatment in which veins are injected with a sclerosing medication under ultrasound guidance. During this procedure, the doctor uses an ultrasound screen to visually monitor the vein being treated.  This enables treatment of veins that are farther below the surface of the skin and would otherwise require surgical removal.
