Fixing varicose veins due to venous insufficiency requires treatment of the underlying dysfunctional vein. In the past, this was done surgically, however the gold standard of treatment has changed. Modern vein treatments are minimally-invasive and accomplished with tiny catheters that can deliver heat therapy or a medical adhesive to collapse the diseased vein. With treatment, blood flow is rerouted to healthy veins for improved circulation. In the right patient, this reduces symptoms of varicose veins including leg edema.
The most common vein therapies today are customized to the patient’s condition and preferences. Popular treatments include sclerotherapy, RF vein ablation, and VenaSeal.
At the Vein Specialist Centers in Clifton, our vein doctors are trained experts in the use of minimally-invasive techniques for spider and varicose veins. All doctors are board-certified specialists with formal training in vascular procedures.
