Conservative Treatment in Arlington, TX

Compression stockings

Wearing compression stockings or compression socks can reduce symptoms of vein problems, but it will not fix the underlining issue in your legs. Many insurance carriers require that you try compression socks before any treatment will be approved.

Lifestyle changes

Losing weight, exercise, quitting smoking, etc can help possibly slow the progress of vein disease and reduce symptoms.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Through a small nick in the skin, an FDA approved catheter (ClosureFAST®) is inserted into the vein. Radiofrequency energy is then delivered to the vein and seals it shut. The result mimics that of Endovenous Laser Ablation because it closes down the problematic vein, and then the blood is rerouted to nearby healthy veins. Treatments are done in our office and usually take about 45-30 minutes to complete with success rates greater than 90% and very low recurrence rates. Patients can immediately return to normal activity, typically with little to no pain.

VenasealTM

The VenaSeal™ system is the latest treatment option for diseased veins. The VenaSeal™ system improves blood flow by closing the diseased vein. The system delivers a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive inside the diseased vein. The adhesive seals the vein shut and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.

Benefits of the VenaSeal™ closure system:

  1. Only one numbing injection
  2. No compression stockings after the procedure
  3. Ability to exercise immediately

Currently the procedure is NOT covered by insurance.

Foam Sclerotherapy (Chemical Ablation) – Treats Branch Veins

treatment_options_3
Ablation refers to closing down a bad vein. Endovenous chemical ablation (sclerotherapy) refers to the injection of a special medicine (sclerosant) into abnormal veins in order to seal them shut. As with other ablation procedures, the treatment is performed under ultrasound guidance to ensure safety. The sclerosing medicine can be made stronger by mixing it with air that creates a foam to treat larger veins.

Microphlebectomy – For larger Varicose Veins

Also referred to as Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Microphlebectomy is a safe and effective in-office procedure that is used to remove varicose veins through tiny incisions using local anesthetic. These incisions are so small that no sutures or stiches are required!

Once removed, these varicose veins never return. The advantage of microphlebectomy is that it’s a “one-and-done” procedure. Patients are able to walk immediately. Microphlebectomy is recommended for the treatment of larger varicose veins and is often used in conjunction with endovenous thermal ablation or sclerotherapy, resulting in more efficient treatment.
