About vein care

Our vein care experts specialize in the most current technologies and techniques for minimally invasive treatment of spider and varicose veins. Treatments are performed in an outpatient setting using local anesthesia and minimal sedation. We deliver excellence with the use of state-of-the-art technology.

Vein care services

We offer several options for vein treatment, including:

  • This ultrasound-guided treatment is used to close off diseased veins. It's most commonly used for larger veins called the saphenous veins that produce varicose veins. Endovenous ablation not only reduces the appearance of varicose veins, it may also improve unwanted symptoms like pain, heaviness, fatigue, swelling and irritation.

  • Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using tiny incisions to remove a large surface of varicose veins. Because the incisions are small, microphlebectomy provides a very pleasing aesthetic result with minimal scarring.

  • Perforator vein ablation is often recommended as a treatment for leg venous ulcers and skin changes. During treatment, minimally invasive techniques are used to close the perforator vein and cut off abnormal blood flow between deep and superficial veins.

  • Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure for closing unwanted superficial leg veins. A sclerosing solution is injected directly into the blood vessel with a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to seal closed. Over a period of weeks, the vessel turns into scar tissue and eventually fades, becoming barely noticeable.
