How can I find top quality Varicose Vein Treatment in Chicago? A renowned vein doctor answers.

Varicose veins can be a painful issue, and we all want to get them treated. If you live in Chicago, and you are wondering, ‘What is the best kind of varicose vein treatment near me’, then, this article is for you! Read on to find out about the best forms of varicose vein treatment, and how to choose a clinic that offers them!

Varicose Vein Treatment Chicago: Ensure that your vein clinic offers advanced minimally invasive treatment.

The best forms of varicose vein treatment are minimally invasive treatment procedures. Earlier, most vein doctors practiced varicose vein removal – an extensive surgery that needed long cuts on your leg, actual removal of the defective vein, stitches, and long recovery times. Today’s minimally invasive procedures could not be more different. Incisions are tiny, barely half a centimeter long, and the more advanced procedures do not even require this! The actual procedure is quick – you can be in and out of your vein clinic in less than a couple of hours. Best of all, these procedures require no recovery time at all, you can get back to your normal routine just as soon as the procedure is over.

How do minimally invasive procedures work? Rather than removing the problematic vein, these procedures prevent blood from flowing through the veins, making them non-functional. This is just as effective as removing them, and so much easier on you! Here is a list of minimally invasive procedures that any top vein clinic should be offering:

  • Radiofrequency Ablation: A radiofrequency catheter is inserted into your vein. This heals the vein from within, which causes it to scar and seal shut.
  • VenaSeal: The vein doctor literally glues your veins shut – by injecting medical grade glue directly into the vein.
  • Sclerotherapy: A medicated solution called sclerosant is injected into tiny spider veins. The solution causes the vein walls to stick together and seal off.
  • Varithena: This is meant for veins slightly larger than spider veins, and uses a foam based sclerosant, which can spread out over a larger area.
  • ClariVein: This can be used for large veins. A catheter with a rotating tip is inserted into the vein. This disperses sclerosant throughout the vein, in all directions.
  • Endovenous Laser ablation: This uses laser energy instead of radiofrequency waves to heat the vein from within.

 

Your vein clinic should offer a proper protocol for evaluating and treating varicose veins.

 Before jumping in and fixing your varicose veins, your vein clinic must offer you a complete evaluation of your leg veins. This is because most people who have varicose veins usually suffer from another complex vein disease, called venous insufficiency. This is a condition that affects larger veins of the leg, called the saphenous veins. The saphenous veins cause blood to flow from the legs to your heart against gravity. If these veins become leaky, blood tends to collect in your legs. This causes the walls of smaller veins to expand and bulge out in an unsightly manner – these are what you see on the surface as varicose veins. Even tinier veins can get damaged, and these appear underneath the skin as purple streaks called spider veins. To properly fix the existing varicose veins and prevent new ones from forming, it is important to evaluate and treat defective saphenous veins.

Vein treatment clinics that follow proper protocol will ensure that you receive a duplex ultrasound prior to deciding on a treatment plan. This will help the vein doctor assess the pattern of blood flow in your veins, and find out which veins need to be treated.

At the Vein Treatment Clinic, our vein specialists follow a standardized, yet flexible protocol. At your initial consultation, we will assess your medical history and examine your veins. You will also be offered a duplex ultrasound. Based on all the findings, our vein doctors will put together a tailored, minimally invasive treatment plan for you – here is where the flexible part comes in. We will always take your comfort and opinions into consideration, and this plays a big part in our final treatment strategy for you.
