During your time with Dr. Umerani or Kristen Davis, NP-C, they will be thorough in going over the issues with your leg. Together, we will come up with a goal to resolve your vein issues. They will review your medical history, and suggest any vein screenings or exams that may be necessary or requested by your health care provider. They will then be able to determine the appropriate treatment option for you, go over the procedure and answer any and all questions you may have about the treatment.
Radiofrequency ablation (aka ClosureFast) is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins that uses heat to close the diseased vein. Local anesthesia is used, and a small incision is made into the vein. Using a small catheter, radiofrequency energy is administered to heat the vein. The procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, and within a few days, many patients can return to normal activities. You’ll notice improvement in your symptoms within 1-2 weeks after the treatment. View the video below for more information about Radiofrequency Ablation treatment.
VenaSeal is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins. With VenaSeal, a medical adhesive is injected into the unhealthy vein to immediately seal or close the vein. Blood flows through nearby healthy veins, improving your systems. No heat energy is used during the procedure, and there is little to no bruising involved, making VenaSeal one of the safest options available in treating varicose veins without the need for surgery. View the video below for more information about the VenaSeal treatment option.
Varithena is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins. This treatment might be used for those with twisted or corded veins, or veins that have been treated previously using other methods. With Varithena, a foam is injected into the vein and fills the vein, causing the diseased vein to collapse. The foam deactivates and the blood reroutes itself to healthier veins in your leg. Treatment takes less than an hour. After the procedure, you could return to some of your regular activities the same day. View the video below for more information about the Varithena treatment option.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins or spider veins where the diseased vein is injected with a solution. This solution creates an irritant in the vein and causes it to collapse, forcing your blood to reroute itself through healthier veins in your leg. With a few weeks the collapsed vein begins to fade. Oftentimes sclerotherapy is the preferred option for those looking for a solution for smaller varicose or spider veins.
