Vein Treatments Are Performed in the Office and Include:
Radiofrequency Thermal Ablation – Venefit Procedure This is a treatment of varicose veins with ultrasound visualization. A small catheter or tube is inserted into the damaged vein. Thermal energy, or heat, is then delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. The procedure is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Afterwards, a leg wrap or prescription compression stocking is usually placed on the treated leg for 1-2weeks. Patients are able to walk immediately after the procedure and most individuals are able to return to work the next day. www.venefitprocedure.com
Ambulatory Micro-Phlebectomy: Minimally invasive removal of varicose veins at the skin surface. It requires only small incisions, no stitches and is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Patients may resume normal activities within a few days.
Sclerotherapy: Used to treat both varicose and spider veins. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with various solutions that irritate the vein lining. In response, the veins collapse, seal shut, and are reabsorbed by the body.
