Vein Treatment

Varicose veins can be painful and they can signal more serious medical conditions.

Treating varicose vein symptoms sooner rather than later isn’t just a matter of appearance. It can help avoid future health problems and circulatory complications. For people with diabetes, whose circulation to their legs, feet and toes is already compromised, diagnosing and treating varicose veins is critically important.

Our team is composed of board-certified, fellowship-trained vascular/interventional radiologists who have helped thousands of western North Carolina patients achieve better leg health and beauty.

Conditions

  • Spider veins
  • Bulging varicose veins
  • Lower-leg skin discoloration or changes in skin texture
  • Sores or ulcers below the knees that aren’t healing
  • History of superficial thrombophlebitis
    • Veins that are sore, red and/or warm to the touch
    • Swollen veins

Services

  • Sclerotherapy
    • Using a tiny needle, a healthcare professional injects a chemical solution into a varicose or cluster of spider veins, causing the vein to collapse. Over time, treated veins are gradually absorbed back into the body’s vascular system.
  • EndoVenous Thermal Ablation (EVTA)
    • EVTA uses either laser or radio frequency energy to treat larger varicose veins. The physician first administers a local anesthetic. Using ultrasound guidance, the ablative device is placed in the abnormal vein. Energy is then applied to the vein, which shrinks the vein and diverts blood into healthy leg veins. Clinical studies have shown that it has an impressive 98 percent success rate and excellent long-term results.
  • Microphlebectomy
    • This procedure involves removing the varicose veins. The skin is first anesthetized, after which the physician makes a small incision to remove the vein. The treatment causes minimal discomfort and patients may walk immediately afterward.
