Varicose Vein Treatment
Endovenous Ablation (EVLT)
This procedure uses laser technology to internally close off abnormal refluxing saphenous veins which often supply blood flow to secondary varicose or spider veins. Although EVLT does not directly remove varicose vein clusters or spider veins, these secondary vein problems may improve after EVLT treatment of the saphenous vein. If secondary varicose or spider veins persist, additional procedures may be needed. This office procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, takes approximately 45 minutes to perform, and most can resume normal activities immediately after.
This procedure may be used to remove varicose veins that are too large for Sclerotherapy but too small for the TriVex system. It involves tiny incisions and uses fine hooks to remove abnormal varicose veins.
Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy is a reliable minimally invasive approach to vein removal using scopes. The TriVex system requires only a few small incisions. The surgeon passes a light source through a small incision, allowing visualization of the veins. A scoping device is passed through a second small incision, which removes the abnormal veins. Patients are discharged the same day with a brief recovery period.
Ultrasound Guided Perforator Vein Ablation
This procedure allows treatment of perforator veins using ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy or ablation.
