The key to proper treatment is the correct diagnosis of the root cause of the vein problems of the leg. We start with a careful history and physical examination to identify risk factors along with the signs and symptoms of venous disorders. The next step is the use of noninvasive ultrasound diagnostics to create a road-map of the venous system to identify and locate valve dysfunction. Only then, can an appropriate treatment plan be developed.
Painful Legs and Painful Varicose Veins
Over the last decade, there have been major advances in the minimally invasive approach to vein problems. The key to proper treatment is the correct diagnosis of the root cause of the vein problems of the leg. We start with a careful history and physical examination to identify risk factors along with the signs and symptoms of venous disorders. The next step is the use of noninvasive ultrasound diagnostics to create a road-map of the venous system to identify and locate valve dysfunction. Only then can an appropriate treatment plan be developed. If ultrasound evaluation identifies that the valves of the saphenous vein or perforator veins are not functioning normally, a minimally invasive catheter based treatment can be used. Radiofrequency ablation, the Venefit procedure, is the technique of choice for the NJ VeinCare to treat valve dysfunction resulting in reflux of the long and short saphenous veins along with the perforator veins. This treatment is covered by most health insurance plans!
Unsightly Spider Veins of the Leg
For those patients with leg vein problems that are primarily a cosmetic concern, we offer the newest techniques in the management of spider and reticular veins. Starting off with the smallest of spider veins, less than 0.3 mm in diameter, we offer Veinwave treatment. This is a significant advancement in the treatment of these tiny veins that are too small for sclerotherapy and don't do well with laser or IPL treatments. Utilizing the principle of thermocoagulation, Veinwave is FDA-approved specifically for spider vein treatment.
Reticular and Varicose Veins of the Leg
We recommend sclerotherapy with Asclera, the latest FDA approved drug for the treatment of spider and reticular veins up to 3 mm in diameter and varicose veins. Using a tiny needle, an FDA approved drug is injected into the vein. Studies have shown improved patient satisfaction with Asclera treatment than the other FDA approved drugs used for Sclerotherapy.
