Why Elite Vein Clinic?

Elite Vein Clinic uses the latest medical technology, Radiofrequency Ablаtіоn (RFA, аlѕо knоwn as VNUS or ClosureFAST, is a Mеdісаrе-apprоvеd, safe, minimally invasive procedure of removing varicose veins.

Unlike ligation and stripping where cuts are made over the vein, which is then tied off and stripped, RFA uses clean thermal energy inside the vein to gently close it off, leaving you with little to no marks that heal quickly.

The entire procedure takes between 15-45 minutes and can be performed on an outpatient basis. 

Many patients return to work the same day.

Serious Complication if Left Untreated

While many patients are understandably concerned by their appearance, if symptomatic varicose veins are left untreated they can lead to more serious complications including: 
 
  • Infections: Venous diseases can also cause leg ulcers. An ulcer is a break in the skin, which is dangerous due to exposure to bacteria and infection.
  • Pain: Varicose veins affect the flow of blood through the veins, oxygen that is carried through the blood does not reach the proper areas, leading to muscle cramps & pain near the site of the vein. 
  • Bleeding: Since varicose veins are usually inflamed, they often press up against the skin, leaving them more susceptible to cuts. 
  • Swelling: When blood isn’t pumping out of the legs properly due to damaged valves within the vein walls, blood begins to collect.
  • Blood Clots: Should a clot detach and enter the bloodstream, it can lead to life-threatening conditions such as thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis.

Although varicose veins can lead to a number of more serious complications, the good news is they’re easily treatable. However, it’s important to seek treatment immediately in order to minimize the associated risks.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Varicose veins are swollen, dark blue or purple blood vessels. They often look like twisted cords, and usually appear on the calves, inside of the legs, and ankles. Symptoms associated with varicose veins include pain, heaviness, fatigue, burning, swelling, cramping, throbbing and restlessness. 

As your arteries move nutrient rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body, veins consisting of periodic valves carry blood back to your heart to complete the circulatory system.  These valves are responsible for preventing blood from flowing backwards in your veins. Venous insufficiency occurs when your veins struggle to send blood from your limbs back to the heart, causing blood to pool in the veins in your legs.

Several factors can cause venous insufficiency, though it’s most commonly caused by blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and varicose veins. Even if you have a family history of venous insufficiency, there are simple steps you can take to lower your chances of developing the condition.

Symptoms include fatigue, aching, itching, burning, throbbing, cramping, restlessness, and heaviness. Managing these symptoms and the daily routines to cover up unsighlty veins can be a daily struggle you don’t have to put up with anymore.

Most initial office evaluations begin with a careful history and physical exam. Photographs are often taken of the leg with the varicose veins. A painless ultrasound is then typically done which allows the doctor to identify where the problem is and help to cater the treatment.

The most common form of treatment in contemporary practice is either radiofrequency ablation or laser ablation of the varicose vein. This procedure is typically done in the office without sedation or anesthesia. A small needle is inserted into the vein after the skin in numbed and a catheter (about the size of a piece of spaghetti) is placed in the vein. The area around the vein it is numbed and the catheter is then turned on which treats the entire vein. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure and after the procedure is over the leg is wrapped up with an ace wrap for support.

A Duplex Doppler Ultrasound exam evaluates the veins inside the leg and is the only way to accurately diagnosis venous reflux. The results of these ultrasound exams are combined with information from a thorough physical exam and medical history to give the physician a complete picture of the venous system as a whole.

Spider Veins or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the top layers of skin. They appear most commonly on the face, thighs, and feet, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. Although usually considered only a cosmetic problem, spider veins can show symptoms of a burning sensation or a dull, throbbing pain, and can lead to varicose veins and other serious complications. See our Spider Vein page for information regarding the treatment of spider veins.

Varicose veins can cause a whole spectrum of disease including pain, itching, swelling, heaviness and fatigue. In the most severe cases they can bleed or cause ulceration (skin tears) which can be quite difficult to heal.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer from some type of vein problem. Varicose veins affect half of people 50 years and older.

All treatment is done in the office with local anesthetic and produces minimum discomfort for the patient. Because treatments are minimally invasive, patients are able to drive, return to work and resume most of their normal activities the same day as or the day after treatment.
