Comprehensive Treatment for Varicose Veins

How we can help you

Vein conditions are common and often distressing. Approximately 40-50 percent of adults are troubled by varicose veins and spider veins. Not only do they cause significant discomfort and embarrassment, but they can cause complications such as dermatitis, ulcers, bleeding and phlebitis.

Understanding varicose veins

Varicose and spider veins occur when blood being pumped back to the heart pools inside a vein, causing congestion and enlargement of the vein. Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when these valves become damaged or diseased. As a result, vein valves will not close properly, leading to symptoms such as varicose veins, pain, swollen limbs, leg heaviness and fatigue or skin changes and skin ulcers.

Endovenous laser treatment (ELT)

ELT is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to treat varicose veins. It is a more comfortable alternative to painful and invasive vein-stripping surgery. ELT offers:

  • Most comfortable laser procedure available
  • Rapid relief of symptoms
  • Minimal downtime, resume normal activities within one to two days
  • Minimal bruising or scarring
  • No general anesthesia
  • Quick, office-based procedure
