Many treatment options are available. Call us to learn which works best for your needs.

SCLEROTHERAPY

Sclerotherapy injections are given in the office, without anesthesia as a treatment for both spider and small Varicose veins. A solution is injected into the vein, causing it to collapse and be absorbed into the body naturally. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the procedure.

ENDOVENOUS LASER TREATMENT

This minimally-invasive procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Varicose veins are dissolved with heat, which causes them to be absorbed into the body. Patients wear compression stockings and bandages and rest for one day. Soreness, bruising and swelling is expected for up to two weeks.

STAB PHLEBECTOMY

This traditional approach to treatment for large, rope-like varicose veins removes the vein from the leg via small incisions in the leg. Bruising, numbness, swelling and inflammation is common after the procedure, but compression stockings minimize those side effects.
