What is the Best Minimally Invasive Vein Treatment in Chicago?

If you’re suffering from vein diseases, you must schedule an appointment with a vein treatment center that provides the best minimally invasive vein treatment in Chicago.

In the past, the only way to treat vein disease was through complicated surgical procedures like vein ligation and vein stripping. Such surgical procedures had limited scope for success and a high risk of complications like infections and deep vein thrombosis.

In recent decades, thanks to the advancements of vein care and technologies, vein doctors can now treat vein disease using minimally invasive procedures.

You should opt for minimally invasive treatments in Chicago because they are highly effective, largely painless, safe, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime. As such, most people who seek minimally invasive vein treatment can return to work the very same day.

However, while there are a lot of effective minimally invasive vein treatments available, they’re not all suitable for you. Before conducting the minimally invasive vein treatment, the vein doctor will have to determine if your vein diseases are caused by underlying venous insufficiency.

Venous insufficiency is a chronic circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse, which causes blood to flow backward and accumulate in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in your leg veins leads to the formation of varicose veins and spider veins.

Before curating a minimally invasive treatment plan, the best vein doctors will conduct a Doppler Ultrasound test. This is a vascular imaging test that allows vein doctors to visualize the blood flow in your saphenous veins to determine if you have underlying vein disease.

Once the vein doctors have determined the root cause of your vein conditions, they can recommend the best minimally invasive vein treatment in Chicago for your specific needs.

Please continue reading for a detailed discussion of the best minimally invasive vein treatments at the best vein centers in Chicago, Illinois.

Best Minimally Invasive Treatment for Venous Insufficiency

If the vein doctors determine you have underlying venous insufficiency, they will recommend minimally invasive treatments that target the diseased saphenous vein. If they treat surface varicose veins and spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease, then your varicose veins and spider veins will return later.

 The following is an overview of some of the best minimally invasive treatments for venous insufficiency.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive vein treatment in which the vein doctor creates an incision on the surface of your skin to insert a catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. After inserting the catheter into the diseased vein, the vein doctor injects local anesthesia and generates thermal energy to destroy the diseased vein. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring blood circulation to the heart.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive vein treatment in which the vein doctor creates an incision on the surface of your skin to insert a laser fiber into the problematic saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. After inserting the endovenous laser into the diseased vein, the vein doctor injects local anesthesia and generates laser energy to collapse the diseased vein. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring blood circulation to the heart.

 VenaSeal

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive treatment in which the vein specialist injects vein glue into the walls of the diseased saphenous vein to seal them shut. The diseased vein hardens into scar tissue. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring blood circulation to the heart. Eventually, the diseased saphenous vein gets absorbed by the body. This procedure is highly effective, but it has only recently been approved by the FDA, which is why it doesn’t have insurance coverage.

Best Minimally Invasive Treatment for Superficial Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Do you have superficial varicose veins and spider veins? Either because the vein doctor has already treated underlying vein disease, or because you never had vein disease to begin with?

If so, the vein doctor will recommend minimally invasive and cosmetic vein treatments that will remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins from your skin. These treatments don’t get insurance coverage because they’re not medically necessary and only improve your leg’s cosmetic appearance.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment used to remove superficial varicose veins. The vein doctor will remove the surface varicose veins through incisions on the surface of your skin.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive spider vein treatment used to get rid of spider veins. The vein doctor will inject a sclerosant solution into the spider veins. This medicine will fuse the vein walls, essentially turning them into scar tissues. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins. Meanwhile, the scar tissues will gradually get absorbed by the body, thus fading away.
