Vein Clinic in New York Explains the Varicose Vein Removal Process

July 25, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

The vein doctors in our vein clinic in New York explain the varicose vein removal process.

Vein Treatment Clinic is a highly-reputable vein clinic in New York that believes our patients have the right to know the precise steps involved in the varicose vein removal process. During your consultation with our vein doctors, we diagnose the root cause of your vein problems and curate the ideal minimally invasive varicose vein removal plan. Before the procedure, we discuss the entire treatment procedure, so you know what to expect.

Our board-certified vein specialists have noted that most people are misinformed about varicose vein treatments. Most people believe varicose vein removal is a surgical and risky procedure for which they need to take several days off work. That’s entirely untrue. Varicose vein removal is a minimally invasive and in-office procedure that concludes within an hour in the vein doctor’s office with a negligible risk of side effects and no downtime. Most people seek minimally invasive treatment during their work lunch hours and resume their daily activities after the treatment.

One of the reasons our vein doctors discuss the details of varicose vein removal before the procedure is that it brings our patients emotional and mental comfort. At our varicose vein treatment center, we want to ensure that our treatments are both physically and emotionally comfortable. In this article, our varicose vein treatment center provides a detailed overview of the entire varicose vein removal procedure.

Are you considering varicose vein removal in New York? In this article, our varicose vein clinic in New York discusses the details of the varicose vein removal process.
  • Step 1: Duplex Ultrasound (Diagnosis of Vein Disease)
  • Step 2: Radiofrequency Ablation, Endovenous Laser Ablation, or VenaSeal (Minimally Invasive Treatment)
  • Step 3: Sclerotherapy, Ambulatory Phlebectomy (Varicose Vein Removal)

Duplex Ultrasound (Diagnosis of Vein Disease)

As with most diseases and treatments, the first step of the procedure is the examination and diagnosis. Vein problems like spider veins and varicose veins are often (but not always) caused by underlying vein disease. Also called chronic venous insufficiency, vein disease is a circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in leg veins.

The accumulation of blood in your leg veins is responsible for various vein problems, including restless leg syndrome, leg heaviness, leg pain, frequent leg cramps, throbbing leg veins, swollen ankles, spider veins, varicose veins, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and more. If you have venous insufficiency, the vein doctor will have to treat the diseased saphenous vein before treating the superficial symptoms.

That’s why the diagnosis of vein disease is crucial. During the initial consultation, our vein specialists examine your legs to look for signs of vein disease, such as spider veins and varicose veins. They will also ask you about any vein problems you may be experiencing, such as throbbing leg veins and leg heaviness. Vein problems caused by vein disease usually worsen at the end of the day.

After the initial examination and discussion of your medical history, our vein doctors may administer a vascular imaging test called Duplex Ultrasound. During the vascular ultrasound test, the vein doctor will visualize the blood flow in your leg veins on a computer screen. The visual representation will allow our vein doctors to diagnose and identify vein disease and the diseased saphenous vein.

Radiofrequency Ablation, Endovenous Laser Ablation, or VenaSeal (Minimally Invasive Treatment)

In the past, vein disease could only be treated with dangerous surgical procedures with a high risk of complications. However, thanks to modern vein care and technologies, vein specialists can now provide safe and painless minimally invasive treatments. All minimally invasive varicose vein removal procedures have a negligible risk of side effects and complications, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment in which the vein doctor channels thermal energy through a catheter to collapse the diseased saphenous vein. Once the diseased vein is removed, the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring effective blood circulation. Radiofrequency ablation is eligible for insurance coverage.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive treatment in which the vein physician applies laser energy through an endovenous laser to destroy the problematic saphenous vein. Once the affected vein collapses, the accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation. Endovenous laser ablation is eligible for insurance coverage.

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive varicose vein removal procedure in which the vein doctors inject a medical adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. The medical adhesive fuses the saphenous vein’s walls, turning it into a hardened scar tissue that eventually gets absorbed by the body.

Sclerotherapy, Ambulatory Phlebectomy (Varicose Vein Removal)

After the primary minimally invasive treatment, the vein doctors may also recommend varicose vein removal procedures to treat the visible spider veins and varicose veins. The primary minimally invasive treatment doesn’t necessarily remove the visible spider veins and varicose veins from the skin.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a spider vein treatment in which the vein doctors inject a medicine into the spider veins to turn them into hardened scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure in which the vein doctor physically removes the superficial varicose veins from your skin’s surface. The incisions eventually heal into scar tissues and fade away from your body.
