Our Specialty Treatment

We are specialists in the following procedures to treat vein conditions and diseases:

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for small (spider veins) and medium size (reticular) veins. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a solution (called a sclerosant) that irritates the lining of the vein. In response, the veins collapse and are reabsorbed. The surface veins are no longer visible. Depending on the size and location of the veins, different types and strengths of sclerosants are used. With this procedure, veins can be dealt with at an early stage, helping to prevent further complications. Sclerotherapy is not typically covered for spider veins as these are considered cosmetic.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), also known as Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT), is a minimally invasive procedure used to correct venous reflux disease, also called chronic venous insufficiency. Venous reflux disease is the underlying pathology that causes varicose veins, and tired, heavy, achy legs.  Performed in the office under local anesthesia the procedure involves inserting a catheter near the knee. A laser is passed through the catheter to the vein and the laser energy is used to close off the faulty blood vessel, which eventually is dissolved into the body. Insurance typically covers endovenous laser ablations for venous disease depending on the severity.

Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure using a local anesthesia in which the doctor removes larger varicose veins in the legs through a series of tiny skin punctures Minimal scarring may occur. Insurance typically covers phlebectomy based on severity.

Laser Vein Treatment

Endovenous laser varicose vein surgery is a procedure that uses heat from a laser to reduce varicose veins. Varicose veins are swollen, bulging veins that often happen on the thighs or calves. Laser surgery closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein allowing blood flow through other nearby veins instead. This procedure is strictly cosmetic and is not covered by insurance.
