Vein Therapies and Procedures
Below are some of the vein treatments we offer. If you believe you need one you don’t see listed, please don’t hesitate to ask our staff about receiving the possible treatment. We may be able to refer you to another specialist.
When weak valves in the vessels fail, they lead to dilation. In larger veins, this is known as varicose. Some of the symptoms will be the same as Restless Leg Syndrome, and you will experience dull aching, throbbing, heaviness, or restlessness. You can also feel itchiness, but this is more common with spider veins. We will help determine the cause with an evaluation during your consultation.
The most effective and standard treatment for those with spider veins is sclerotherapy. Our team will administer small injections of medicine into the veins themselves to help close off the vessel until it disappears. This therapy has been used for over 100 years and is still considered to be the best plan of action. We can perform these injections into veins as small as 0.5 millimeters.
Using a duplex ultrasound, we can locate, visualize, and inject the medication into deep veins without causing incisions and scars. It is a minimally-invasive procedure lasting up to 30 minutes and requires only a small dose of anesthetics. We will also wrap the leg that received treatment with a compression sock before you leave our facility.
Dr. Elliot considers this to be the best solution for incompetent saphenous veins (venous reflux disease). We don’t use any anesthetics during this procedure, so once we are finished, you can go home and perform normal day-to-day activities. Using ultrasound, we guide a catheter to the infected area to apply glue, closing off the vein, and allowing blood to flow to another healthier vein.
Using a simple injection point, Dr. Elliot will remove the varicose vein. There is simple local anesthesia used, so you may need a ride home after the procedure. We can also help with smaller veins, which may be considered spider veins. Dr. Elliot will give you guidelines and activity restrictions you need to follow, which include wearing a compression sock.
