We offer the following services:
The Vein Center uses only the latest technology and equipment to provide you with a detailed evaluation. Before treatment, a Complete Medical History is taken and a thorough Examination of the Legs is made to determine the extent of your venous problems.
Following the examination a Doppler study study will be performed to evaluate the function of the major valves in the deep and superficial leg veins. This painless test uses sound waves to listen to blood flow. We use ultrasound to see the veins and the valves, detecting the direction of blood flow within the veins and locating incompetent perforator veins that connect the superficial venous system with the deep venous system.
