VARICOSE VEINS TREATMENT

VARICOSE VEINS TREATMENT

The VNUS Closure procedure has become a useful alternative method for the treatment of varicose veins. Vein closure can usually be used to treat those patients who would have previously been treated by vein stripping. Closure of the greater saphenous vein is the minimally invasive alternative to vein stripping. Instead of stripping the vein, the closure device seals the vein shut.

HIMC provides different treatments for varicose veins, including Endovenous Ablation, Micro Phlebectomy, and Sclerotherapy.

Endovenous Ablation

This procedure entails inserting a very small tube called a catheter into the vein and delivering radiofrequency or laser energy to the vein wall, causing the vein to shrink, collapse, and seal shut. Once it’s sealed, healthy veins take over and redirect blood flow back toward the heart. Patients have reported little, if any, pain during the procedure, and most return to normal activity in a day

Micro Phlebectomy

This procedure entails making a very small incision overlying the varicose vein and removing segments of it. Through various incisions, the network of varicosities can be excised. Patients tolerate the procedure well with minimal bruising which resolves over several days and most return to normal activity in a few days.

Sclerotherapy

The surgical procedure concerned with the treatment of varicose veins is called stripping. Because varicose veins get worse with time if not treated, the operation involves incisions made along the skin to remove these veins. This surgery is perfectly safe because the process does not affect blood flow, as other veins take charge of the circulatio.
