Based upon your symptoms, physical examination and Doppler ultrasound results a treatment plan will be developed which may include the following:
Sclerotherapy - which is a well-proven, in-office, minimally invasive procedure used to treat the small and medium sized varicose veins, including" spider like" veins. The unhealthy veins are injected with a sclerosing agent which causes them to close down and eventually dissolve into the body. A small gauge needle is used to perform the injections and most patient relate very little discomfort.
Laser Ablation / Endovenous Laser Ablation - is a quick, minimally invasive laser treatment that requires no hospitalization and no complicated surgery. The entire procedure from start to finish takes about an hour and there is very little or no pain. With laser treatment, a small optic fiber is inserted through a needle into the varicose vein under ultrasound guidance. The laser is activated and as the optic fiber is removed from the vein, it heats and closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, the blood that was circulating through the vein is naturally rerouted into the deep venous system where it belongs. Another advantage of treating varicose veins with the laser is that most insurance plans and Medicare cover it.
