Venous Duplex Imaging

Duplex scanning of veins utilizes ultrasound to visualize a vein to determine the exact anatomy, direction of blood flow within a vein and to assess for abnormal valves.  With this improved ultrasound technology the physician is better able to diagnose underlying problems and prescribe a treatment plan tailored to a patient’s individual needs. This is important to achieve the best long-term cosmetic and therapeutic results.

VeinSolutions provides on-site testing at the VeinSolutions Vascular Lab. The registered vascular technologists have been specifically trained by our vascular surgeons. The test is non-invasive, no preparation is needed and it takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Venous duplex scanning is typically a covered expense by most insurance companies.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is an injection treatment used to eliminate "spider" veins and small to medium-size varicose veins. A solution is injected into the problem vein with a very fine needle. The vein wall becomes irritated. Subsequent application of external compression with dressings and prescription-gradient compression hose seals the vein wall together. The body breaks down the damaged vein and absorbs it, ultimately eliminating the problem vein. No pre-treatment patient preparation is needed and most patients describe minimal discomfort. After treatment patients resume normal activities, but are asked to avoid prolonged sitting and standing for 3 days and heavy exercise (weight lifting, running and high impact aerobics) for two weeks. Walking is encouraged after the treatments. Prescription-gradient compression hose are worn for 9 days after each treatment.

Minimally Invasive Treatment (MIVA)

Minimally invasive vein surgery is the treatment of choice for larger varicose veins to achieve both the desired cosmetic results and to relieve symptoms such as aching, swelling and pain caused by leg varicosities. Our vascular surgeons are experienced and skilled with venous anatomy and strive to constantly update their surgical expertise.
Today's surgical techniques for varicose veins require minimal incisions and are performed on an outpatient basis with average recovery time of one week or less. Meticulous effort is made to achieve optimal cosmetic and therapeutic results.

Radio Frequency Vein Ablation (VNUS Closure)

The VNUS Closure procedure is offered for treating larger varicose veins and is indicated for those patients who meet certain medical guidelines. The Closure procedure is performed on an outpatient basis by using radiofrequency (RF) energy applied to the inside vein walls of the damaged vessel. As the RF energy is delivered and the catheter is withdrawn through the damaged vein, the vein wall heats up causing the wall to shrink and the vein to close. Patients who undergo the Closure procedure often resume normal activities quickly with excellent cosmetic and therapeutic results. The procedure is covered by most insurance plans.
