TREATMENT

Spider and varicose veins can be a signal of a disorder in the circulatory system. Because of this, general health questions, medical history, and a physical exam are important components in ruling out a serious circulatory condition.

At VeinPros, we take typically perform a sonogram on the legs of our patients to better determine the presence of leaking valves or blood clots. Based on your particular diagnosis and special circumstances, we’ll devise the best course of treatment.

VNUS Closure Catheter

This a minimally invasive treatment, where a thin catheter is inserted into the vein, causing it to heat, and then seal shut.

Sclerotherapy is often needed to close off the smaller varicose veins that remain after the procedure.

The Procedure


The skin on the inside of the thigh is injected with xylocaine, and then a thin radiofrequency catheter is fed into the vein. This highly sophisticated catheter then delivers energy to the inside of the vein, and is slowly withdrawn.

The catheter has temperature sensors on it, which are monitored during the procedure, making sure the vein is getting the exact amount of heat to close the vein permanently.

With this procedure, patients are back to near normal activities the following day.

*Note: Not all patients will be candidates for endovenous laser or the VNUS Closure procedure. Your treatment will be a result of what will best suit your individual condition.
