our procedures

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Endovenous Laser Treatment, commonly referred to as EVLT, is the leading minimally invasive, nonsurgical, laser energy method used to close diseased veins. A small laser fiber is inserted into the saphenous vein via the thigh or calf. Painless laser energy runs through the fiber and into the vein, causing the vein to close.

Clarivein Treatment

ClariVein Treatment is one of the latest non-thermal ablation methods. This treatment is done directly within our clinic and requires no anesthesia. ClariVein requires the insertion of an intravenous catheter through a tiny prick in the skin. A rotating mechanical tip is exposed to dispense the sclerosant drug in a 360-degree motion throughout the length of the affected vein. The vein walls react to the solution by sticking together like glue, thereby closing the diseased vein.

This treatment is different than other venous closure treatments we offer. Instead of using laser therapy or administering the sclerosant drug to close off the affected vein, we inject a clear liquid through a small catheter which then solidifies, closing the diseased vein off from blood flow.

Mini-Phlebectomy is an outpatient procedure, performed under local anesthesia. This procedure is for large bulging varicose veins that cannot be treated with Sclerotherapy. Mini-Phlebectomy is the removal of varicose veins through microincisions, requiring no stitches, and leaving virtually no permanent scars.

This virtually painless vein closing treatment administers a medical sclerosing solution that is injected into the vein. The walls of the veins are irritated and stick together, ultimately closing the vein. The vein will shrink over time, eventually being reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue.
