Spider & Varicose Vein Clinic Treatments

(Do we need to add orbit)

Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are a specialized hosiery designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders such as edemaphlebitis and thrombosis.

Venograms

Venography is a procedure in which an x-ray of the veins, a venogram, is taken after a special dye is injected into the bone marrow or veins.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of your legs by treating damaged and broken veins (varicose, reticular and/or spider). This treatment involves injections of a solution called a sclerosant. The purpose of a sclerosant is to damage the vein walls. This will cause the blood to clot within the treated veins, ultimately stimulating the body to break down the damaged veins. Sclerotherapy usually involves multiple injections of approximately 8cc’s of solution per one hour session. After receiving the injections, a prescription-strength compression stocking will be applied to the treated legs or legs.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Endovenous laser treatment (ELT) is a minimally invasive ultrasound-guided technique used for treating varicose veins using laser energy. Medical lasers work by delivering this light energy to the targeted tissue with extreme precision, so as not to affect the surrounding tissue. 

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the hearttumor or other dysfunctional tissue is

ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current (in the range of 350–500 kHz).

Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small scalpel or needle to remove varicose veins that lie just beneath the surface of the leg.  There are two basic types of phlebectomy: Ambulatory and Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy.
