What is Vein Therapy?
Patients experiencing leg pain, swelling, varicose veins, skin changes, or ulcerations may have a condition called venous reflux disease. This can occur when the valves in the legs become damaged or diseased, impacting the blood flow between the heart and lower extremities. These patients may benefit from in-office treatment options known as venous ablation, phlebectomy, or sclerotherapy.
Vein therapy treatments at our office start with a consultation with our vascular specialist, Dr. Isenbarger. After the initial meeting, diagnostic ultrasounds may be used to assess the severity and location of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which is the term used to describe improper functioning of the vein valves in the legs. Once this assessment has been completed, there are several treatment options that may be used to improve symptoms and remove painful varicose veins or spider veins.
All treatments are done as outpatient procedures in our office and may be covered under your health insurance.
Recovery varies by procedure and person, but patients generally can expect to return to usual, non-strenuous activities a few days after the procedure, though the use of compression stockings may be needed during the recovery period to ensure proper healing.
