Vein clinics are specialty care centers focused on the diagnosis and treatment of venous (vein) conditions. These clinics are led by vein doctors and specialists who are experts in vein health.
Whether you’re seeking care for a specific vein issue or you’ve been referred to a vein specialist by your general practitioner, here’s everything you need to know about vein clinics.
The Purpose of a Vein Clinic
In short, vein clinics can treat both frustrating cosmetic conditions, such as bulging varicose veins and noticeable spider veins, as well as venous conditions that carry serious medical risks. With advanced technology and trusted vein specialists, vein clinics improve quality of life for patients with any vein-related concerns.
Our vein clinic is specifically designed to diagnose and provide treatment to alleviate symptoms for patients who suffer from varicose and spider veins or venous reflux. Typically these symptoms include swollen, painful legs, and the physical and aesthetic discomfort of bulging veins. In severe cases, vein problems may cause open wounds that also need the special care and attention our vein clinic can provide.
What Conditions Are Treated at Vein Clinics?
There are many conditions that can affect your veins, so vein clinic treatments span far and wide. With five different locations, Vascular Surgical Associates’ vein clinic locations provide treatment for varicose and spider veins, which can be medical and/or cosmetic concerns.
Today, many vein treatments employ technologically advanced procedures that are minimally invasive and require little downtime. Below is a list of the venous interventions we perform to aid with venous reflux, varicose veins, and spider veins.
- Ambulatory microphlebectomy removes diseased veins via small incisions
- Sclerotherapy consists of a saline and foam injection to address spider veins
- Radiofrequency closure uses radiofrequency energy delivered via catheter to close problem veins
- Endovenous laser therapy is an ultrasound-guided procedure that seals veins via laser
- Cosmetic laser therapy treats spider veins that are too small for needle injections
