but you will always walk out with answers.
Treating varicose veins varies from person to
person. Treatment options largely depend upon the ultrasound exam results, but typically include: endovenous laser ablation, radiofrequency
ablation, microphlebectomy, sclerotherapy, and medical compression
These advanced techniques have eliminated the need for
painful stripping procedures that are now obsolete.
Our services include the most current techniques for treating venous
insufficiency such as endovenous thermal ablation, (using the latest industry-standard laser and radiofrequency ablation equipment) and
microphlebectomy (removal of varicose veins through tiny incisions). We
also provide the latest treatments for spider veins including
sclerotherapy, including Veinwave and VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive technique for
treating venous insufficiency. We insert a small needle into the affected vein
using ultrasound guidance, then we place an FDA-approved catheter (VNUS Closure) into the vein.
The subsequent radiofrequency energy is delivered directly to the affected vein and seals it shut (ablation). Once the diseased blood vessel is closed, blood flow is then rerouted to other
healthy veins, reestablishing normal
flow. This technique is virtually painless and patients
resume normal activities following the procedure.
Microphlebectomy is a safe and effective, minimally-invasive surgical
procedure to treat varicose veins. We use a special marker to tag the surgical site where the superficial varicose veins will be removed under local anesthetic using a special set of tools. The leg is then
wrapped, and patients can walk immediately after the procedure.
Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure in which a solution called a sclerosing agent
is injected into veins using extremely fine needles which cause the veins to
close.The number of treatments needed differs from patient to patient,
depending on the extent of the problem. The treatment sessions are performed at
four to six week intervals to achieve optimal results. After the procedure,
compression stockings are applied and patients can immediately walk out of the
Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is similar to conventional sclerotherapy. Under
ultrasound guidance, a needle is inserted into affected veins and a sclerosing
agent is injected. Both the needle and solution can be visualized by the
physician with this technique. The sclerosing agent irritates the vein wall
causing it to collapse and scar down. Once the diseased vein is closed, other
healthy veins take over to carry blood from the leg, reestablishing normal
Jeffrey H. Miller, MD
Interventional Radiologist and Phlebologist
Dr. Jeffrey Miller is board certified in interventional radiology and phlebology, and is also a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners as well
as the American Board of Radiology. He holds a Certificate of Added
Qualification (CAQ) in interventional radiology. Increasingly, medical
offices are offering varicose vein and spider vein care, but none can
match the experience, knowledge or expertise of Miller Veins.
Dr. Miller has been performing complex image-guided
endovascular procedures since 1994. His experience includes service as a director
of the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Department at Oakwood
Hospital and Medical Center in Dearborn, Michigan. As of January 2008, Dr. Miller was one of only two American Medical Association-registered phlebologists in Michigan.
Born and raised in Metro Detroit, Jeffrey H. Miller, MD earned his
bachelor of science degree at Michigan State University where he
graduated with high honors. He then attended Wayne State University
Medical School and received his medical degree with high distinction. He was one of only 15 students in a class of 250 to achieve honors in each year of medical school. He received his radiology training at
William Beaumont Hospital where he served as a chief resident. He then
did a fellowship in interventional radiology, and that has been his focus ever since.
Dr. Miller has received many honors and awards throughout his training
and professional career. HOUR Magazine
named him one of “Detroit’s Top
Docs.” A member in many honor societies, Dr. Miller was accepted to Phi
Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi as an undergrad and to Alpha Omega Alpha
during medical school. He received the "Faculty Teacher of the Year" award multiple times at Oakwood Hospital and Medical Center, as well as
the Research Mentor Award. Dr. Miller has given hundreds of lectures,
often speaking at national medical meetings and medical professional
Steven K. Wang, MDInterventional Radiologist and Phlebologist
A native of Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Steven K. Wang received his formal education in the
Midwest. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of
Wisconsin, where he completed a double major in biochemistry and
molecular biology, graduating with distinction in 1987. He completed his medical school studies at the University of Illinois in 1991.
It was there where his interest in the procedural care of patients
He began his residency training in general surgery, but decided
to change his focus to more minimally invasive procedures using imaging
guidance (ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, X-ray). He completed his residency
in Diagnostic Radiology, and completed a fellowship in interventional radiology in
Since his residency training, Dr. Wang’s specific area of interest has
been venous disease. He was the first physician to bring minimally
invasive endovenous treatments for varicose veins to William Beaumont
Hospital--first with radiofrequency technology, after its initial FDA
approval, then with laser technology. Other local physicians know his expertise in treating complex vascular diseases well.
Dr. Wang has lectured extensively and published multiple
articles in the field of interventional radiology i
n the past decade. He has trained many
physicians in treating varicose veins and other complex venous
diseases. He was the fellowship director and Director of Resident Education in Interventional Radiology at William Beaumont Hospital and
has been voted "Teacher of the Year."
Dr. Wang has also served on
numerous committees with a focus on quality assurance and patient care,
including serving on the Peripheral Vascular Interventions Advisory
Committee of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Cardiovascular Consortium, a
multi-center, state-wide initiative to improve patient care in Michigan.
Michael E. Lulenski, MD
Dr. Michael E. Lulenski joined the Miller Vein team of
vascular experts in July 2012. During his residency program, Dr.
Lulenski trained under the tutelage of Dr. Miller.
the best resident in IR I every had! I could trust him to perform
procedures from the very beginning to the completion of a case," Dr. Miller said.
"Dr. Lu," as patients know him, received his bachelor of science
degree at the University of Arizona in 1992 and graduated with honors. Dr.
Lulenski graduated medical school in 1997. He broadened his experience by spending his third year of medical school studying at Waterford Regional
Hospital in Ireland and his fourth year at Beth Israel Hospital in New
York City. In 2002, he completed his residency at Oakwood Hospital and
Medical Center in Dearborn, Michigan, where he was awarded for
outstanding patient care. Following his residency, Dr. Lulenski’s interest
in vascular care blossomed as he completed his fellowship in interventional radiology in June 2003 at Tampa General Hospital, Tampa,
In 2004, prior to joining the elite group of physicians at
Miller Vein, Dr. Lulenski was one of the founders of Legacy Vein
Clinic, located in South Bend, Indiana. While there, he was the first
in that region to perform endovenous thermal ablation.
"When I heard he wanted to move back to Michigan, I had to offer him a
job right on the spot, and I have been thrilled with his performance.
More importantly, his patients love him! This makes sense since he has
been running a vein clinic for years" according to Dr. Miller.
Dr. Lulenski now serves as the medical director of Miller Vein.
