—— Venous Ablation ——

The underlying cause of varicose veins is almost always related to the valves not working in the great and/or small saphenous veins.  Ablation closes these veins using a catheter inside the vein that seals the vein using heat.  This may be accomplished with laser or radiofrequency.  The procedure is completed with local anesthesia in the office, with immediate return to normal activity.  rfa-ablation

—— Venaseal ——

An innovative treatment for the great and small saphenous veins is Venaseal closure.  Using a medical grade glue with a polymer added, the vein is closed via one access site.  The advantage of this procedure is there is no heat generated, so minimal anesthesia is required.  There is an immediate return to normal activity with no compression hose required.  This procedure is not covered by insurance.                  venaseal-web

—— Microphlebectomy ——

 This procedure uses tiny incisions under local anesthesia to remove larger bulging veins.  Often this is completed at the time of venous ablation.  It offers immediate return to normal activity and gratifying removal of the unwanted veins.   phlebectomy-web

—— Sclerotherapy ——

After the larger veins have been treated, sclerotherapy may be used for the remaining branches and smaller varicose veins.  A tiny needle is used, often with ultrasound guidance, to inject an FDA approved medication into the unwanted veins.
