We treat more than just the cosmetic effects of varicose veins. We specialize in finding and treating the underlying cause. Our physicians are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. Venous disease includes conditions such as, venous insufficiency or venous reflux, phlebitis, deep vein thrombosis, and vein compression syndrome.
A thorough ultrasound of the deep and superficial leg veins including vein mapping for the diagnosis of deep and superficial venous reflux, deep vein thrombosis and superficial venous thrombophlebitis.
An outpatient diagnostic test performed in the hospital to visualize abdominal, pelvic and lower extremity veins. Used in the diagnosis of vein compression syndrome, inferior vena cava, iliac vein or leg vein thrombosis.
Performed in the office under local anesthesia. The physician will position a catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. Tumescent anesthesia is then infiltrated around the vein and catheter to anesthetize and cool the leg. After delivery of tumescent the catheter is turned on and delivers heat to the vein wall, causing it to shrink and the vein to seal closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will reroute to other healthy veins.
Performed in the office under local anesthesia. The physician will insert a thin fiber into the damaged vein through a small opening in the skin. Tumescent anesthesia is then infiltrated around the vein and fiber to anesthetize and cool the leg. After delivery of tumescent the laser is turned on emitting light through the fiber delivering just the right amount of energy. The targeted tissue reacts with the light energy, causing the vein to close and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will reroute to other healthy veins.
Performed in the office. No anesthesia required. The sclerosing agent Asclera ® (polidocanol) is injected into the vein by the physician using a tiny needle. It is used to treat uncomplicated spider or reticular veins (veins no larger than 3 mm. in diameter).
Performed in the office under local anesthesia. The physician thoroughly anesthetizes the area. Small incisions are made overlying the vein. The vein is then removed in sections using a special device. The incisions are closed using steri-strip bandages. No sutures are required. The phlebectomy procedure removes large ropy varicose veins where other methods will not work.
Thrombectomy is performed in the hospital on an inpatient basis and vein stenting is performed in the hospital typically on an outpatient basis. Thrombectomy is the removal of deep vein blood clots by the physician using special procedures and devices. Vein stenting is used in the treatment of vein compression syndrome to assist in keeping the specific vein open to prevent future blood clots from forming.
