Sclerotherapy & Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT) in NYC
This extremely effective varicose vein treatment uses sophisticated ultrasound equipment to evaluate the venous system creating real-time, high-resolution images. Since ultrasound uses sound waves it offers several advantages over other available imaging tools, such as live x-ray imaging (fluoroscopy), CT and MRI
For example, ultrasound does not use radiation and is therefore safe during pregnancy. Most small and large veins can be evaluated in depth for the pattern of blood flow, the speed of blood flow, direction and strength of blood flow.
Even small abnormalities can be picked up accurately.
Image Guided Treatment
Direct visualization ensures accurate placement and offers a greater margin of safety. Smaller needles may also be used, improving patient comfort and reducing risk.
The ultrasound device is used to pinpoint the exact location of varicose veins in order to place the needle in the optimal location prior to treatment.
Vein Treatments & Conditions
Varicose Vein Symptoms
Varicose veins are caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves. Normal valves would prevent back flow of the blood. Damaged valves will leak blood backwards. This causes the veins to be full of blood, increasing the blood pressure inside the vessel. This can happen because of previous pregnancy, chronic consipation, obesity or just being genetically predisposed.
Varicose Vein Diagnosis
Depending on the location, sometimes a venogram may be done to further assess your veins. During this test, a special dye is injected into your legs and X-rays are taken. The dye appears on the X-rays, giving a better view of how your blood is flowing.
Tests such as ultrasounds or venograms help ensure that another disorder like a blood clot or a blockage isn’t causing the pain and swelling in your legs.
Varicose Vein Treatments
In mid size varicose veins (most common), laser treatments are often used to close off the abnormal varicosities.
A laser is a strong burst of light applied to the vein that causes the vein to close and disappear over time. In very large veins, sometimes it may be necessary to surgically remove the varicosities using tiny incisions. All treatments can be performed using local anesthesia or light sedation.
Spider Vein Symptoms
Rarely they can be painful. There are effective, painless treatments available for them.
Spider Vein Diagnosis
Spider Vein Treatments
Laser Vein Treatments
There is no need to make any cuts in this minimally invasive procedure. It is often used for most varicose and spider veins. It is well tolerated with local anesthesia or light sedation. Most patients resume all normal activities the next day.
EndoVenous Thermal Ablation
A diseased vein is effectively closed and disappears over time. Symptom relief results in a several days.
Microphlebectomy Vein Treatments
Now it is minimally invasive and can usually be done in the office setting. The treatment involves making tiny punctures along the path of the vein. Using a special instrument, the varicose veins are gently removed through these small openings.
The poke holes are so small that only local anesthetic is needed and no stitches are required. The patient is able to resume normal activity quickly, and discomfort following the treatment is rare.
Non-Surgical Vein Treatments
EndoVenous Laser Ablation Treatments – involves closing off the vein, from the inside using heat.
Sclerotherapy Treatments – is conducted by injecting a liquid into the affected vein, to close it up.
Superficial Thrombophlebitis Treatments – means there’s a blood clot in the vein just under the skin, and some treatments may include applying heat to the painful area, elevating the affected leg, bed rest, and possibly wearing compression stockings. The condition usually improves on its own.
