Our Treatments

Radiofrequency Ablation (ClosureFastTM)

Radiofrequency ablation is a treatment device that is placed into a diseased vein under ultrasound guidance through a small opening in the skin. 

The small device delivers heat to the vein wall, causing it to shrink and seal closed. 

Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will reroute itself to other healthy veins. The great thing about radiofrequency ablation is that its minimally invasive outpatient procedure that gets you back to normal the very same day.

 

Non-Thermal Ablation (VenasealTM)

Non-thermal ablation (VenaSealTM) is a procedure that uses a medical adhesive delivered inside a diseased vein. 

The device is inserted into a diseased vein under ultrasound guidance.

When the adhesive is delivered, the diseased vein becomes closed and blood will reroute to healthy veins.

 

Micro Foam Sclerotherapy

An injectable foam that is used in treating varicose veins and larger diseased veins that worsen circulation.

The foam is injected under ultrasound guidance in an outpatient setting. 

The treatment does not require any incisions and usually takes less than 30 minutes to administer. Patients may resume most activities same day and heavy exercise after 1 week.

 

Compounded Sclerotherapy

Compounded Sclerotherapy is a generic injectable foam that is administered to varicose veins with or without ultrasound guidance. 

This is often the treatment of choice for small varicose veins and spider veins.

Sclerotherapy causes the vein to scar down and forces blood to reroute to healthier veins. 

The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into the local tissue and eventually fades away. Sclerotherapy is often used at the end of a treatment plan for venous reflux disease.
