Vein Care

The HVC Vein Center specializes in cutting-edge, minimally-invasive treatments for all forms of vein disease including: varicose veins, spider veins, dvt, venous reflux disease and pelvic vein disorder.

After a comprehensive evaluation that may include an ultrasound examination of the veins, our vein specialists will determine the optimal treatment for each patient’s needs. If your treatment is determined to be medically necessary, our staff will work with you and your insurance provider to determine coverage.

Vein Disease

Varicose veins are a common condition, but can be a sign of a more serious problem. At Heart and Vascular Care, we stress the importance of a thorough vascular evaluation by a physician specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease. Only then can a proper diagnosis and treatment plan be developed. Initial evaluations are considered medically necessary and are typically covered by most insurance plans.

Treatments

Treatment of vein disease, is minimally-invasive and can be completed in an office based procedure. The specialists at Heart and Vascular Care utilize cutting-edge technology to properly treat your needs.

Some of the medical treatments that we provide include:

  • Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy (AP)
  • Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy
  • Foam Sclerotherapy
  • Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Vein Stenting
Diagnostic Tools and Treatment Options

Physical Exam: To diagnose varicose veins and spider veins, a physical exam by a doctor is generally all that is required.

Ultrasound: If the doctor wants to get an idea of how the blood is flowing through your veins, he may order an ultrasound. The ultrasound is non-invasive and gives your doctor a picture of your veins and the direction of blood flow and how your valves are working.

Compression Stockings : One of the least invasive treatments is to use compression stockings to help support the veins.

Sclerotherapy: Still considered non-invasive, the doctor injects a sealing agent into the veins.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This treatment involves the doctor removing the damaged vein from the leg.

Endovenous Vein Treatment: The doctor seals the damaged vein from the inside with heat, laser, or glue.
