Varicose and Spider Vein Treatments

 

Varicose Veins And Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Varicose vein symptoms include enlarged, twisted, rope-like veins that appear near the surface of the skin.

Why do varicose veins form?
In normally functioning veins, tiny one-way valves open as blood flows toward the heart and close to prevent blood from flowing backward. When these valves malfunction, blood pools in the veins, resulting in a buildup of pressure that weakens their walls, causing them to bulge.

How do we treat varicose veins? The way we treat most patients with varicose veins is with our Endovenous Laser Treatment also called Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA). This state-of-the-art procedure allows us to effectively remove varicose veins without the traditional method of “vein stripping”. There is no recovery time required.We want patients to get up and move as soon after this procedure as possible as the body will naturally absorb the collapse vein once treated.

Is It Covered By Insurance?

RFA Treatment is currently covered by Medicare and most insurance plans. We will verify with your insurance company that it is covered in your plan prior to proceeding. If you do not have insurance or have an extremely high deductible, we can discuss affordable payment options with you.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

On average RFA Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes.

Does It Hurt, And What Is The Recovery Time?

It is normal to have some minor discomfort during the procedure. We have performed over 3,000 procedures and have never had to discontinue the procedure because of patient discomfort. Your comfort is our number one priority. We will do everything that we can to make this as relaxing and comfortable of an experience as possible. There is no recovery time needed. The procedure can be performed during your lunch break with immediate return to work. We encourage you to walk after the procedure.

What Are The Side Effects?

The most common side effects are minor bruising or discomfort in the area of the treated vein. Also, occasionally patients will experience tingling or “pins and needles.” This normally resolves in 3-4 weeks.

How Successful Is RFA?

It is successful approximately 98% of the time. The vein will actually stay open about 2% of the time. If this occurs, we simply will re-treat the vein.

Are There Alternative Treatments?

The traditional treatment, vein stripping and ligation, requires general anesthesia, pain and a long recovery. We do not recommend this. All other forms of treatment including foam sclerotherapy, phlebectomy, Vein Gogh, and sclerotherapy are also performed in our clinic. This may be an adjunct to your treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I recognize the signs of Peripheral Arterial Disease?

 A: Sclerotherapy, or injection therapy, is a minimally-invasive, vein therapy method for addressing spider and some larger veins. In most cases, a“sclerosant” solution is injected through a very fine needle directly into the vein. This is usually done with the use of a special vein light or with ultrasound guidance.

Q: Can I Exercise After A Vein Procedure?

 A: Usually, these procedures require almost no down time at all, but the time it takes to return to a full or unmodified workout routine really depends on the type of procedure: whether it’s a laser or radiofrequency ablation treatment for varicose veins or sclerotherapy (injections) for spider veins.
