No more vein stripping.

Vein closure is a minimaly invasive outpatient procedure.

Endovenous Ablation

Endovenous Ablation is not a new procedure and has been around since 2000. Endovenous ablation uses either radiofrequency energy or LASER energy delivered through a thin catheter to heat and treat the underlying cause of the varicose veins. Performed with ultrasound guidance and under local anesthesia, this process is a gentler, minimally invasive approach to the treatment of the underlying insufficient veins causing the varicose veins or other presentations of venous insufficiency such as swelling, skin discoloration, bleeding or ulceration. Endovenous ablation allows treatment of leaking veins by sealing them with heat, rather than stripping the veins out of the leg. With endovenous closure, there are no incisions, minimal to no pain, and minimal scarring.

Procedure

Endovenous closure involves the placement of a thin catheter into the faulty or leaky vein through a small needle hole, under local anesthesia, in an outpatient setting. Once the leaking vein is closed, the tortuous varicose veins will often depressurize and shrink. Some varicosities will completely disappear. In other cases it may be necessary to remove the residual bulging veins either in conjunction with the endovenous closure procedure or at a subsequent procedure. This can easily be accomplished through tiny incisions, again under local anesthesia, in an outpatient, office setting. The sealed vein is permanently closed off to any future blood flow, and the body will naturally use other healthy veins to return blood to the heart. In fact, the body’s “circulation” will be improved after a severely leaky vein is sealed since normal veins will not be overwhelmed with the job of returning the extra pooling blood from the leaky vein. The majority of patients with advanced venous disease can be treated with endovenous closure alone and can return to normal activity almost immediately. Endovenous closure can be performed in a physician’s office under local anesthesia, with long-term success exceeding 95%.

    I just had my follow-up ultrasound done on my left leg today. I had the right leg done on Monday of last week. Glad to report no clots in either leg. Clotting is the complication they seemed most concerned about.
    If any of my friends are dealing with the pain and discomfort of varicose veins or just tired of the ugly appearance of bulging veins in your legs. I can highly recommend Dr Magnant and his extremely professional staff.
    I have had visible veins in my right leg since a knee injury when I was a teenager. Over the years it had grown to affect both legs. Likely from always being on my feet for work, and especially because I often had employment that involved a lot of crouching/squatting down. Sometimes until my lower legs fell asleep. I fortunately have always been an active person outside of work and regular exercise kept the pain at bay for many years. But I'm no spring chicken anymore.
    A little over two years ago, my assignment changed at work and I now spend more time at my desk . Within a few months the pain at the end of the day really began bothering me (and I have a very high pain tolerance).
    This was the third specialist I had been to locally in the last two years. I don't want to name the others, however I will say that they all seemed to be rather disorganized for a medical facility, or the staff seemed to be overwhelmed and the diagnostic procedures (ultrasound particularly) done before the actual surgery were not even comparable to the level of care I received from every member of the staff here.
    I am also very fortunate and blessed to have excellent insurance that covered the procedure 100% since my deductible was already met for the year.

    Varicose veins are uncomfortable and all-pervasive - I believe it's estimated that over a third of both women and men in this country suffer from them. I was one of those people. It seems like my whole adult life I avoided wearing shorts. After doing some research online I decided to visit Vein Specialists to take care of my ugly veins. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience. My treatment turned out to be a great success. Now I am back to wearing shorts and feel amazing. I want to thank the Vein Specialists staff and Dr. Magnant for all their help with not only treating my painful leg veins but also for making me feel comfortable and welcomed. The staff is always sweet, friendly and very accommodating. Dr.Magnant is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Dr Magnet and his staff make sure you are comfortable and that you understand everything every step of the way. I wish more of my doctor's visits were as good of an experience as the one I received at the Vein Specialists.
