Vein disease is more than just a cosmetic problem. Ignoring it can result in symptoms such as pain, fatigue, itching, burning and swelling. Sufferers can experience throbbing and restlessness, where they feel the need to constantly keep their legs moving. Vein disease is a progressive condition that will only get worse if left untreated.
VCA’s comprehensive, minimally invasive treatment approach includes Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT) and Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy. The average patient requires Sclerotherapy in conjunction with ELT to treat the smaller veins. VCA's use of Sclerotherapy, combined with ELT, allows their physicians to treat the smallest spider vein to the largest ropelike varicose vein, and even venous leg ulcers. Neither option requires hospitalization or surgery. Instead each is performed in the physician's office.
Our dedication to vein disease treatment and research has not only helped lead today’s advancements, but allows us to meet the needs of each patient by treating a wide spectrum of vein disease.
