We offer a wide range of traditional and state-of-the-art treatment modalities depending on the treatment plan designed specifically for you by our board-certified physicians. Most treatments take less than one hour and patients find themselves resuming normal physical activities the same day.
Venefit, formally Closure procedure (radio frequency ablation of the greater saphenous vein) is done by your board-certified VI physician and makes use of a needle puncture or small incision which enables a small catheter with a special electrode to be passed into the saphenous vein. The electrodes then produce radio frequency energy that closes the vein. Recovery time from this procedure is short, allowing return to normal activities the same day. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our office. Data suggests that over 90% of veins remain closed after 1 year. Nine out of 10 patients who have received Venefit, formally Closure procedure (radio frequency ablation of the greater saphenous vein) would recommend the treatment to a friend.
EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation): This approach to the treatment of GSV reflux involves insertion of a small diameter laser filament into the vein through a needle puncture. This procedure is done at our office with minimal anesthesia. This procedure is also highly effective, and post-op discomfort is minimal.
Other non-invasive or minimally invasive treatment options include:
Compression stockings and/or leg elevation are examples of conservative approaches to treatment of venous disease. Support hose are available over the counter but compression stockings are generally of higher compression and are available by prescription only. We stock compression stockings for the convenience of our patients.
Laser Treatment of Leg Veins: This treatment involves the use of lasers to produce selective light-induced thermal damage to small veins, causing them to disappear. Commonly, at VEININNOVATIONS, treatment of small vein disease involves a combination of sclerotherapy and laser treatment.
