Canada Vein Clinics has multiple locations in eastern Canada, including two in Toronto. It was founded by Dr. Alexander Matz, a general surgeon with over 15 years of experience in treating vein disorders. As a vascular doctor, he is a pioneer in minimally-invasive procedures; in 2006, he introduced endovenous laser ablation therapy (EVLT) to Atlantic Canada.
Dr. Matz has earned Fellowships from the American College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He is also a member of the Canadian Association of General Surgeons, the International Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, and the American College of Phlebology.
What Kinds of Services Does Canada Vein Clinics Provide?
Canada Vein Clinics offers an array of minimally-invasive procedures for treating spider veins and varicose veins. Such procedures include the following:
• Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy
What is EVLT?
EVLT is a minimally-invasive procedure that is typically used to treat varicose veins. It is an outpatient procedure, and the vascular doctor utilizes a special laser fiber. After maneuvering the fiber, a laser is used to block blood flow to the varicose veins. The body will eventually absorb the varicose veins and reroute the blood through healthy veins.
What is ClariVein?
ClariVein is a minimally-invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. It is similar to EVLT, but it does not use a heat source like lasers to treat the vein. ClariVein is sometimes described as a non-thermal procedure.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is yet another minimally-invasive procedure that is offered by our vascular doctor. It is used to treat spider veins and the smaller varicose veins. It is an outpatient procedure that involves injecting a special solution into the defective vein. The solution will irritate the inner walls of the diseased vein and cause it to shrink. The body will reroute the blood through nearby healthy veins and absorb the non-functional vein.
