“The greatest honor one human being can bestow on another is to entrust them with their life in their greatest moment of need (illness). 

 

The least a surgeon can do in return is exhibit diligence, skill and above all,

compassion.”

Varicose Vein Treatment

State of the Art Varicose Vein Treatment

vericose veinsVaricose veins are often enlarged and, over time, appear ropy under the skin.  This enlargement is caused by incompetent or leaking valves known as venous reflux disease, which can also lead to symptoms including pain, swelling, aching in the legs, and skin disorders.  

 

veins before & after

Treatment methods vary based on the type of vein and the presence of venous reflux disease.  Diagnosis is based upon an ultrasound scan and visual inspection.  Dr. Oraedu will determine if you are a candidate for endovenous laser treatment, based upon the severity of the symptoms and the diagnosis.

 

 

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) is used to correct venous reflux.  The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office.  Using ultrasound guidance, a catheter is inserted through a small incision into the saphenous vein.  A laser fiber is then inserted into the catheter and used to deliver energy, while the fiber is being withdrawn from the leg, to close the diseased vein.
