Procedures & Services

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablasion

 

This category of care means we are treating the vein disease from “inside the vein.”


A common procedure for treating large straight veins is endovenous radiofrequency ablation or RF ablation (Venefit procedure). This minimally invasive procedure treats venous reflux disease using radiofrequency energy to heat and seal diseased saphenous and perforator veins, ultimately shrinking and collapsing the vein. This procedure addresses the underlying cause of varicose veins and treats large straight vessels that are usually the source of symptoms related to venous reflux disease. 

 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy treatments:

•Liquid sclerotherapy
•Foam sclerotherapy
•Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way to erase surface veins such as spider veins and small varicose veins (varices). A small amount of a liquid solution is injected into the diseased vein through a fine needle. The solution causes the vein walls to stick together and the vein collapses. The treated vessel disappears over time as your body absorbs it.


Compression is applied with compression stockings to keep the vein closed after treatment. The compression limits the amount of blood that forms clots inside the collapsed vessel. Over subsequent weeks, the vein turns into scar tissue, effectively making the vein disappear.

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy, also known as Ambulatory Phlebectomy, is an in-office procedure to remove bulging varicose veins near the skin surface. It is done with local anesthesia and removes varicose veins through tiny punctures or nicks in the skin. Typically the incisions are small where no sutures are required. Phlebectomy is comprised of four steps: 

  • Outline/mark the intended vein(s).
  • Inject local anesthesia around the diseased vein.
  • Using special phlebectomy instruments that look similar to a small crochet hook, the diseased vein(s) are removed segment by segment through several skin nicks.
  • Wear compression wrap for up to 72 hours continuously. After the compression bandage is removed, a thigh height graduated compression stocking should be worn for an additional 7-10 days.

Conservative Treatment

Historically, patients with varicose veins were recommended conservative treatment options. Conservative treatment options refer to a non-invasive form of treatment, where medications and surgery are not used to treat varicose veins. Patients can make lifestyle changes, such as eating less, exercising more and wearing compression stockings. This regimen has proven helpful in reducing leg pain and further deterioration of the venous system. Conservative treatment will not remove existing abnormal veins, but it may be the treatment choice for patients that may not be able to undergo other treatment methods. There's no way to prevent varicose veins. But improving your circulation and muscle tone can reduce the risk of developing varicose veins or getting additional ones.
