Minimally Invasive Treatment
Our comprehensive, minimally invasive approach includes ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy as well as endovenous laser treatment (ELT). Neither option requires hospitalization or surgery. Instead, each is performed in the physician's office. You can be back on your feet resuming normal activities the same day.
Dr. King opened his family medicine office in 1985. While in private practice, he also served as a faculty member in MacNeal Hospital's Family Practice Residency Program in Berwyn, Ill. Dr. King has been actively involved in medical education as a Clinical Associate Professor at the Medical School of the University of Illinois and as a Clinical Instructor at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and at Rush Medical College of Chicago. He is also an active member of several professional societies and has served on the Medical Advisory and Pharmaceutical committees for the Humana Health Network in the Chicago area.
Sclerotherapy is a microinjection procedure that needs no pain medication or surgery. Abnormal veins are treated by injecting a solution called a sclerosant, sealing the vein off from the rest of the vein network in your leg, allowing the body to naturally redirect the blood flow to healthy veins.
Endovenous laser treatment (ELT, or sometimes referred to as EVLT) is a quick, minimally invasive laser treatment that requires no hospitalization and no complicated surgery. A small optic fiber is inserted through a needle into the varicose vein, heating and closing the vein, allowing blood to be naturally re-routed to other healthy veins.
