At our practice, our patients receive a personalized consultation so that they learn about the cause of varicose veins and opt for the treatment that is best suited for them – all in the comfort and convenience of our office.
The condition occurs when fragile veins near the surface of your leg stretch, wind and swell. Healthy leg veins have one way valves that allow the blood to run towards the heart against gravity. When these valves are affected, veins are unable to send blood from your legs back to the heart, resulting in a condition called venous insufficiency. Gradually, the vein becomes larger and protrude as varicosity under the skin.
First and foremost, our physicians will examine a patient’s leg using ultrasound to ascertain whether varicose vein and leg ulceration treatment is appropriate and necessary. No special preparations are required for this examination.
Our Vein Ablation and Leg Ulceration Treatment is Non-invasive
We treat varicose veins by applying laser or radiofrequency ablation therapy. The treatment is done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.
Our vein ablation treatment is minimally invasive. After your vein is numbed by our specialist doctors, a thin fiber is inserted into your vein by means of ultrasound guidance. Thereafter, thermal energy is delivered through the fiber. The heat produced will cauterize the vein and seal it closed.
Once the veins with the leaking valves are closed, a patient’s varicose vein will contract and shrink in appearance. After the diseased vein is sealed, the other healthy veins start carrying blood from your leg restoring normal flow to the heart.
Our procedure takes about an hour and will relieve you of the painful symptoms almost immediately.
