Vein Disease

Vein Disease

Treating vascular diseases is one of our specialties. Vein disease patients can receive endovascular therapies at the Vascular and Interventional Specialists of Florida for conditions such as varicose veins, leg pain and swelling, and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Whether you need complex medical treatment or simple cosmetic treatment for your vein problem, we can help.

Treatment for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

VenefitTM (formerly known as the VNUS ClosureTM procedure)  uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close varicose veins. During VenefitTM, a catheter is inserted into the affected vein and heats the vein wall, causing it to collapse, shrink, and eventually disappear. This technique takes less than 30 minutes to perform and we do it in the comfort of our office. This treatment results in less pain and bruising than alternative treatments.

For large, bulging varicose veins, we may perform ambulatory phlebectomy. During this procedure, you receive a local anesthetic and we remove the leg veins through tiny, slit-like incisions in the skin.

Many of our patients, men and women alike, come to us for ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy vein treatments that reduce the appearance of spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Sclerotherapy uses tiny injections of a medication to treat problem veins, and we often use ultrasound to help us place the injections. The medication causes the veins to shrink and eventually dissolve after multiple treatments.
