There are several proven treatments for a venous disease that vein specialists can perform on patients. Finding the most suitable for you will depend on the severity of the symptoms of your condition, your goals and expectations, and your budget. Whichever vein condition you have, however, treatment is not likely to be outside the following options:
Sclerotherapy is one of the most popular treatments for varicose veins. It involves the varicose vein being injected with a saline solution, which irritates the linings of the vein’s walls causing it close and die.
In vein stripping, incisions are made along the affected vein. It is through these incisions that the vein is pulled out in bits.
This is a minor surgery that is mostly performed on an outpatient basis in Desert Vein Center.
Ambulatory phlebectomy also involves the use of incisions to pull out small varicose veins and spider veins.
In laser surgery, the vein specialist delivers strong bursts of laser light into the affected vein causing the vein to close and fade away. Unlike traditional surgery, laser surgeries do not make use of scalpels or needles to access the vein.
This procedure involves the use of a thin tool called a catheter to heat the inside of the varicose or spider vein. The catheter is inserted in the vein then heated using laser or radiofrequency energy. It destroys the vein and causes it to collapse when it is pulled out.
Endoscopic surgery is performed as a last resort for vein diseases that have advanced symptoms such as leg ulcers. In it, a diminutive camera is inserted in the vein to visualize the varicose veins before they can be removed through incisions.
