When veins become enlarged and twisted, they are referred to as varicose veins. The bulging of the veins commonly occurs in legs, however varicose veins can occur elsewhere. Veins have pairs of leaflet valves to prevent them from flowing backwards, leg muscles pump the veins to return blood to the heart against the force of gravity.
When veins become enlarged, the leaflets of the valves fail to function efficiently which leads to the blood to flow backwards, eventually enlarging the veins even more.
When veins become varicose, the leaflets of the valves no longer meet properly, and the valves do not work efficiently (valvular incompetence). This allows blood to flow backwards and they enlarge even more.
Besides being a cosmetic problem, varicose veins can be painful, especially when standing. Severe long-standing varicose veins can lead to leg swelling, venous eczema, skin thickening and ulceration.

Varicose veins can be only a cosmetic concern for many, but they can be a serious and painful medical condition for others. Varicose veins can indicate a risk of underlying medical conditions involving the circulatory system.
Untreated varicose veins can cause potentially life-threatening complications which can alter the lifestyle of the patient. Regardless of age and gender, anyone diagnosed with varicose veins should not delay their surgical treatment.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Our treatment options for vein disease range from conservative, lifestyle-based approaches to more advanced treatment methods. Our expert doctors work within the patient’s needs, preferences, and insurance requirements to personalize a treatment schedule that works best.
We have following treatment options:
A radiofrequency catheter is gently inserted into the vein through the skin. The catheter emits radio waves, which heat specific areas of the affected vein, causing it to close. The closed vein is then reabsorbed into the body. The blood supply in that area is naturally rerouted through other, healthier veins. The safety and effectiveness of this method have been well documented with long-term data.
Like radiofrequency ablation, a laser fibre is gently inserted through the skin into the affected vein. The laser is activated and heats the vein wall, causing it to close. The closed vein is reabsorbed into the body. The blood supply in that area is naturally rerouted through other, healthier veins. Laser ablation can treat small segments of refluxing veins with a high degree of success.
A thin catheter in the vein delivers medical adhesive into the vein's interior. The medical glue seals the vein shut, and blood is directed into other healthier vessels.
During this minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, medicine is administered into the affected vein. The vein then collapses, and blood is redirected to healthier vessels nearby. It is used to treat various types of varicose veins.
Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy
A foam medicine called a sclerosant is injected into the diseased vein, which irritates the vein wall, resulting in closure. Blood is then naturally rerouted through healthier veins while the body reabsorbs the closed vein. An ultrasound machine to guide the procedure for maximum accuracy and safety
The bulging vein is removed through tiny incisions that require nothing more than a band-aid to heal. The body reroutes the blood supply using healthier veins.
Used for spider veins that are closer to the skin's surface. A sclerosant medicine is injected into the veins, initiating a reaction that causes veins to close and be reabsorbed into the body
If left untreated, varicose veins sometimes lead to venous ulcer. It may produce a large amount of discharge and becomes more painful. There may also be redness around the ulcer.
It is important to clean and cover the infected area and treat it using medications. Anti-biotics medication course is prescribed to eliminate the infection and heal the ulcers.
Inflammatory liposclerosis attacks the layer of fat under the skin. Foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive technique for men and women to eliminate inflamed veins

“The best medical visit I have ever had. The staff are caring, cheerful and take all the time you need to explain everything. Highly recommend.”
“Early appointments. On time for appointment. Professional staff. Definitely thumbs up.”
“I was afraid to have my veins done because of the old vein stripping and ligation procedure. I was pleasantly surprised with the entire experience from start to finish.”
While most vein disease can be seen by looking at the size and color of the veins at the skin surface, the best way to know if you have the condition is with a consult and simple non-invasive ultrasound exam. Through the exam, we can determine the condition and functioning of your veins, and based on your prior medical history and current condition, map out a customized treatment plan.
Your doctor will perform a physical examination and ask about any pain, swelling, or other symptoms you’re experiencing. Next, they will order an ultrasound test if they suspect you have a blood clot. Alternatively, your doctor may suspect you have other complications and order an ultrasound as a result.
