Skilled, leading edge vein care to help you feel and look your best.
At the Center for Advanced Vein Care, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the vein treatments they need to live healthier, happier lives. When you come to our vein clinic, you will be seen by a board-certified physician for the initial consultation, as well as through every stage of your evaluation and vein care. You can expect your vein doctor to talk to you about your concerns and medical history. Along with a physical exam focusing on your vein care area(s) of concern, an initial quick ultrasound scan may be performed to determine if further testing for vein disease is necessary. Vein treatment options vary depending on your specific vein care needs, and your vein doctor will work with you to determine what treatment will have you back to normal as soon as possible.
Minimally invasive procedures offered at the Center for Advanced Vein Care include:
- Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy: Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is used to treat large varicose veins that may not be seen with the naked eye. Ultrasound is a painless technique that allows the physician to see veins that cannot be seen at the surface of the skin.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA): Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a minimally invasive ultrasound technique used for treating varicose veins. It uses laser energy to close the diseased vein so that blood is rerouted into healthy veins.
- Radiofrequency Thermal Ablation (RF): Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment that uses heat for the treatment of vein issues. Radiofrequency energy is used to heat up and damage the inside wall of a vein to close off the problem vein.
Surgery is no longer required for vein treatment! Newer techniques, such as endovenous laser thermal ablation (EVLA), radiofrequency ablation thermal ablation (RF), ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy, and visually guided sclerotherapy, allow for the treatment and management of most vein conditions WITHOUT the need for hospitalization, major surgery with general or regional anesthesia, or prolonged recovery times! Most people can be back to work or their daily routines immediately and any restrictions are often lifted within one week. Most evaluations and treatments are covered by insurance, so you don’t have to hesitate to come into our vein clinic for treatment of your vein concerns.
