Vein Clinic

Varicose Veins

Veins are thin walled blood vessels that carry blood towards the heart. Veins in the legs have one-way valves that keep blood from flowing backwards. Varicose veins occur when the valves fail or are absent, which allows blood to flow backwards into thin walled superficial veins. Over time, these superficial veins can become bigger, twisted, bulge through the skin, and can cause discomfort.

Spider Veins

Spider veins usually develop on the lower extremities as dark blue or purple blood vessels. They can appear to web and branch over the lower extremities, upper extremities and sometimes even the face.

Symptoms

Varicose vein are associated with the following symptoms involving the legs:

How

An ultrasound study of the leg veins is performed, which evaluated by a vascular expert (Dr. Khalsa) to see if you are a candidate for treatment.

Treatment

Sclerotherapy

A minimally invasive procedure, which can be used to treat spider veins of the lower legs. The procedure is done with a very small needle through which a sclerosing agent is injected into the vein. This causes the vein to absorb the agent and fade away.
Time: 30 minutes – 1 hour

Endovenous Ablation

A minimally invasive image-guided procedure is an effective treatment for varicose veins. The procedure is done under ultrasound guidance, and uses a special catheter, which uses controlled heating to close the abnormal veins from the inside. The procedure is very well tolerated with a relatively quick recovery period.
Time: 30 minutes – 1 hour

VenaSeal

A minimally invasive image-guided procedure is an alternative to endovenous ablation for the treatment of varicose veins. The procedure is also done under ultrasound guidance, however, uses a special medical adhesive to achieve a similar result to close the abnormal veins from the inside. The procedure is very well tolerated and associated with a rapid recovery period.
Time: 30 minutes

Endovenous ablation and Venaseal may be covered by insurance plans if you qualify for the treatment based on evaluation of symptoms, ultrasound or have active ulcers.
