August 28, 2020
Our state-of-the-art vein center in Freehold, New Jersey, describes the minimally invasive treatment process.
Dr. Todd Kobrinski is the medical director at our vein center in Freehold, New Jersey, and he has several years of experience treating varicose veins, spider veins, and vein disease using the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. He has a perfect track record, something you can verify for yourself by going through our 5-star ratings and reviews from patients.
Our state-of-the-art vein center — Vein Treatment Clinic, Paramus — specializes in the latest minimally invasive procedures for all vein-related issues. During your initial consultation, our vein doctors carefully diagnose the root cause of your vein problems to recommend the ideal minimally invasive procedures, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, VenaSeal, sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
We only provide minimally invasive procedures, as opposed to vascular surgeries, because they’re nonsurgical, cause little to no pain, are completely safe, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime. Furthermore, these are outpatient procedures with no downtime, so you can resume your daily activities immediately. But despite the simplicity of minimally invasive procedures, most people assume varicose vein treatments are surgical, complicated, dangerous, or time-consuming.
That’s why most people avoid consulting vein doctors until their symptoms worsen. You should consult vein doctors to seek varicose vein treatments as soon as you notice the first signs and symptoms of vein disease, such as leg pain, restless leg syndrome, spider veins, etc. If you don’t seek varicose vein treatments early, you may eventually suffer from complications like leg ulcers and deep vein thrombosis.
This article aims to provide a detailed overview of the minimally invasive treatment process, including endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy. Once you understand what to expect from minimally invasive procedures, you’ll realize that there’s nothing to worry about!
Step 1: Our medical director examines the vein symptoms and administers vascular imaging to diagnose vein disease.
During your initial consultation, our board-certified vein doctors will determine if you have underlying vein disease. Most vein problems, including spider veins and varicose veins, occur because of an underlying circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins, i.e., chronic venous insufficiency. We need to determine if you have venous insufficiency to curate the ideal minimally invasive treatment plan.
Our vein doctors start the diagnosis process by examining your leg veins and looking for vein disease symptoms. They’ll also ask if you’re experiencing symptoms like restless legs, leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, etc. Following the visual examination, our medical director administers Duplex Ultrasound, a vascular imaging process that projects a visual image of the blood flow in your leg veins to a computer screen, thus identifying venous insufficiency.
After the diagnosis, our medical director will discuss your minimally invasive treatment options. They will discuss the pros and cons of all minimally invasive procedures and discuss the possibility of insurance coverage. Based on that, they will curate the ideal minimally invasive treatment plan for your specific needs.
Step 2: Our vein doctors administer the latest varicose vein treatments, including laser ablation and sclerotherapy.
After the diagnosis, it’s time to proceed with the minimally invasive procedures. If you have underlying venous insufficiency, our vein doctors will recommend one of the following varicose vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal.
These minimally invasive procedures have the same underlying goal — identify and collapse the diseased saphenous vein. Once the diseased vein is neutralized or removed, the accumulated blood can freely flow to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. However, they achieve this underlying goal through different methods.
During the minimally invasive treatment, the vein doctor will channel thermal energy (radiofrequency ablation), laser energy (endovenous laser ablation), or medical adhesives (VenaSeal) into the diseased saphenous vein via a catheter or injection under ultrasound guidance. This will immediately collapse the diseased saphenous vein, restoring healthy blood circulation to the heart.
Step 3: Our vein doctors use minimally invasive procedures to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins.
The aforementioned minimally invasive procedures will treat the underlying vein disease, but they don’t necessarily remove all the visible varicose veins and spider veins from your skin’s surface. If you want to remove all the superficial signs of vein disease from your skin’s surface, you’ll need to opt for minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, such as sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure in which the vein doctors remove the superficial varicose veins through incisions on the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which the vein doctors inject sclerosant solution into the spider veins, hardening their vein walls to turn them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body. Once the hardened spider veins are absorbed, they fade away from the skin’s surface.
