Sclerotherapy is a simple and effective procedure for treating small to medium sized veins in the legs. Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting a substance directly into the veins which causes them to close.
A phlebectomy refers to the surgical removal of a varicose vein. A phlebectomy is a quick office based procedure that is done with local anesthesia. No general ansethisa is needed. This is a great procedure for veins which cannot be removed by other means.
Endovenous Vein Ablation
Some problematic veins are larger and deeper than the veins you can see on the surface of the leg. These larger veins could be acting as “feeder” veins and cause problems such as varicose veins, leg swelling, skin changes, and even leg ulcers. These veins are treated by a procedure called a “vein ablation.” This is a procedure which can close off larger sections of malfunctioning veins. By closing off the malfunctioning veins, blood is forced into the veins which work properly and the circulation in the leg is improved overall.
Are you a Candidate?
At The Vein Institute, we specialize in all problematic veins from small spider viens to larger varicose veins. We offer the latest treatment techniques from sclerotherapy to endovenous ablations.
When most people think of venous disease they think of varicose veins and spider veins. However these are only a small portion of all patients with venous disease. Another way to think of venous disease is what people may call “poor circulation.”
“Poor circulation” in the legs can cause a wide array of problems in addition to varicose veins.
You may suffer from venous disease if you have any of these symptoms:
- Varicose Veins
- Spider Veins
- Leg Swelling
- Tired aching legs
- Leg ulcers
- Skin changes on the legs
- Restless legs at night
