Your active lifestyle depends heavily on how healthy your legs are. Varicose veins can be painful, and can hinder your daily activities, while spider veins make you want to hide your legs.
Don't trust your vein treatment to just any doctor. Dr. Kevin Haney will help you sport your favorite clothes again and live the lifestyle you desire. There's never been a better time to treat your veins, so make Dr. Haney your doctor and love your legs again!
In the past, patients
with varicose veins had to experience painful vein stripping surgery performed
in a hospital setting with long recovery times. Today, patients have much
better, convenient options to treat venous reflux disease. Dr. Haney has
performed procedures to treat varicose veins in his office with excellent
results and little or no pain.
VNUS Closure Procedure
This treatment is simple,
non-invasive and is performed in our office. We use ultrasound imaging to first map out your veins, then Dr. Haney makes a tiny incision to insert the closure catheter into the diseased
vein. The tiny catheter is powered by radiofrequency (RF) energy and disperses heat into the vein wall. The blood vessel wall then shrinks, and the vein seals itself shut. Your blood
is then rerouted to other nearby healthy veins.
Dr. Haney will then place a simple bandage over the insertion site, however you will need additional compression to aid in healing. Patients who undergo
the Closure procedure typically resume their daily activities. This procedure results in a good cosmetic outcome with minimal to no
scarring, bruising or
EVLT Laser Vein Treatment Procedure
Similar to RFA, endovenous laser thermal ablation (EVLT) uses laser energy instead of radiofrequency energy to collapse the vein wall and achieve proven results. Dr. Haney will then place a simple bandage over the insertion site, however you will need additional compression to aid in healing. Some
patients may experience temporary soreness which can be treated effectively
with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers and should subside within the
first five days.
VenasealThe VenaSeal Closure System treats venous reflux disease via an advanced medical adhesive (known as cyanoacrylate). Dr.
Haney is one of the first in Arkansas to treat patients with venous reflux
disease using VenaSeal. This approach eliminates the risk of nerve injury that occurs sometimes with certain thermal-based procedures. This procedure is administered without tumescent anesthesia, and minimizes needle sticks. Patients
also report minimal-to-no bruising post-procedure.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy or Micro-Phlebectomy
It is an outpatient procedure that removes bulging, painful veins and
allows patients to resume their normal routines post-treatment.
The ambulatory phlebectomy procedure is usually performed on larger,
superficial veins, but it is also useful for smaller veins as well. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a micro-extraction procedure, which allows Dr. Haney to remove large surface varicosities directly through very small incisions.
Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy
Foam sclerotherapy is a safe and effective method that treats varicose veins by injecting a detergent-like agent (sclerosant) that has been
suspended in foam into the vein. It is effective because the foam
fills the entire cavity of the vein. Foam sclerosants allow the
active chemical ingredients to remain in contact with the vessel wall for an
extended period of time, enhancing the effectiveness of the treatments. This
advanced form of sclerotherapy has been cleared by the FDA for use in the United States. It is done in-office, requires no anesthesia or sedation, and you can return to work
The most conservative option for varicose veins is wearing prescription
strength compression stockings. Compression stockings may lessen the symptoms
but do not treat the cause of venous reflux disease. The stockings must be worn
on a daily basis. Many insurance plans require a trial of compression stockings
for several months before considering covering treatment.
