Services Provided

We offer screening, testing and treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Treatment options include:
Endovenous Catheter Ablation (Venefit®)
Ablation is the latest innovation to treat venous insufficiency. A thin catheter is placed by ultrasound into the affected vein and the vein is closed with no discomfort. 

Ambulatory Phlebectomy
Lidocaine is used to numb the area around large bulging varicose veins. The bulging veins are removed through micro-incisions leaving smooth skin with no scarring in the area of previous bulging veins. 

Medication is injected directly to close small reticular veins. 

Compression Stockings
Can be used for conservative treatment or in conjunction with vein treatment to help aid healing and to improve outcomes of vein treatments. 

External laser treatments
The perfect adjunctive treatment for those pesky spider veins! 

Topical Cremes
Leg lotions as a perfect supplement to your treatment for a soothing, beautifying effect and nutritive support to your new legs!

HeartCare Associates Vein Center provides a wide range of the latest vein treatment procedures to patients in Hamden, CT, and the surrounding area.
