The Vein Center for Women was started by combining the knowledge in venous diseases and a personal interest in women’s health. The mission statement of the vein center is “Beauty inside out” as we believe that if ones inner health is good, the beauty would naturally be seen and that is exactly what we try to treat each patient with. To this purpose, the center follows a protocol in evaluating its patients as a whole, giving them information, education and assistance in achieving “Total health”.
Our treatment modalities include medical, supportive, conservative and surgical treatment of venous diseases as and when needed. Both our newer and traditional treatments include state-of-the-art Endo-venous Closure Treatment, Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy, Stabphlebectomy; all tailored to each patient's needs. All our patients at vein center are treated by Board certified vascular surgeon in our office setting.
