The body then redirects blood flow through healthier veins to improve your overall circulation and alleviate your symptoms. READ MORE.
Varithena is a variation of sclerotherapy performed with ultrasound guidance that involves the injection of a sclerosing agent, Polidocanol. This microfoam works by coating the lining of the vein to collapse the vein and make it disappear. Varithena is very safe and effective, especially for larger varicose veins.
An ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure performed in the office to remove large, bulging varicosities. The area around the vein is infused with numbing solution, so there is virtually no pain. Tiny incisions are made by the physician, in order to remove the vein. Because these incisions are so small, the scars are often barely even noticeable.
The VenaSeal procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. It involves the use of a medical adhesive to seal the damaged vein and redirect blood flow to healthy veins. During the procedure, the doctor will insert a small catheter into the affected vein using ultrasound guidance. Once in place, the doctor will inject the VenaSeal adhesive into the vein. The adhesive then seals the incompetent vein. READ MORE.
A very popular treatment to eliminate spider veins and small varicose veins. A solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins to irritate the inner lining of the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and disappear. A very small gauge needle is used to perform the injections and most patients consider the discomfort to be insignificant. Several treatments are usually required to achieve desired results. READ MORE.
A venous ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the veins in the body. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure that is commonly used to evaluate the function of the veins in the legs. During the exam, a small handheld device called a transducer is used to transmit sound waves through the skin and into the veins. The sound waves bounce back from the veins and are detected by the transducer, which then creates an image of the veins on a computer screen.
