Varicose Vein Treatment
Often, treatment for varicose veins aims to reduce the visibility of disfigured veins.
We offer a diverse range of treatment choices, including:
- Phlebectomy to remove varicose veins near your skin’s surface
- Sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure to remove large, unsightly veins
- Laser procedures to lighten your veins
Treatment for Chronic Venous Insufficiency
When blood doesn’t properly flow through your veins, you are at a higher risk for blood pooling in your legs.
Treatment for chronic venous insufficiency helps increase blood flow and may include a combination of the following treatments:
- Compression stockings
- Lifestyle changes, including weight loss and increasing physical activity
- Procedures to seal or remove damaged veins
Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatment
DVT treatment is usually urgent, as a blood clot that’s lodged in your leg can break off and travel to your lung. To prevent this from happening, your doctor may recommend clot-dissolving medications or a filter to catch coagulated blood.
Your doctor will explain the benefits of each treatment and help you prepare for any special procedures.
