Our Doctors in the News
CBS4.com did a report last week for their Health section about an innovative vein treatment procedure that is beginning to be used by doctors across the nation. The "closure fast" procedure is considered to be a breakthrough for the vein treatment industry because it is as efficient as laser vein treatment but is much less painful. Of course, the news report didn't just rely on hype to learn about the treatment. It went to a professional.
The professional quoted throughout the "closure fast" report is Dr. Jose Almeida, a Miami doctor who is part of our network of recommended physicians. Dr. Almeida is quoted as saying that the new procedure combines the best of two older technologies to give patients a terrific new option. You can learn more about Dr. Almeida here on our site.
If you're interested in this type of procedure but don't live in Miami, you can check our network for other recommended professionals throughout the nation. Even if they aren't doing "closure fast", they can help you to determine what solutions can get rid of your varicose veins. As noted in the report, this is often covered by medical insurance because it's considered to be a necessary procedure (even though it can be done for cosmetic reasons) so money shouldn't be the reason stopping you from finding a doctor.
Question of the Day: Would you prefer to use a new vein treatment technology like this one or a more established one like sclerotherapy?
