Inside each of us is a giant network of veins all working hard to pump blood throughout our entire bodies. Usually our veins work just fine without any input from us, but sometimes there can be complications that cause conditions, such as varicose veins. Varicose veins are those veins that have become abnormally thickened, enlarged, or twisted. These are veins that are close to the surface of the skin and can be dark blue or red. At Varicose Vein Treatment Clinic, we have years of experience treating this condition without the use of surgery and with minimal discomfort to the patient.
First we do a clinical examination after taking a full history.Next an ultrasound will be performed to check for clots, venous reflux and measurement of the veins, and treatment will be decided.
All treatments are done in the office - no major surgery needed. We do sclerotherapy, which is injecting the veins with a safe solution that will close it and make it disappear. We perform endovenous laser ablation which is done locally and help close the vein that is causing most of the problems. We also do phlebotomy which is removing big branches through very small incisions and under local anesthesia. All of the above are simple non invasive procedures. Patients will need to wear support stockings following treatment.
While varicose veins are not often life threatening, they can be accompanied by very real discomfort and pain and can even be a symptom of a deeper problem. If you are looking for immediate or later treatment for your varicose veins, stop by our offices today for a consultation.
