VenaSeal Vein Closure

VenaSeal™ Vein Treatment in Fort Myers

The VenaSeal™ Closure System is a premium FDA-approved safe and effective minimally invasive vein treatment. VenaSeal™  works by delivering a specially formulated medical adhesive agent that closes down the diseased veins in patients with symptomatic venous insufficiency. The blood then re-routes to healthy veins and symptoms improve. VenaSeal™ is the only non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure approved for use in the U.S. that uses a specially formulated medical adhesive to close veins. The procedure is administered with the use of local anesthesia, minimizing the need for needle sticks. This translates to less potential complications, little-to-no pain and extremely fast recovery. The recovery time for this procedure is immediate, making it a sought after method for those suffering from vein disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are there any preparations before the procedure?

  • You will not need to do any prepping before your appointment. Before your VenaSeal™ procedure can begin, however, your doctor will take an ultrasound of your leg to assess the affected vein.

Q: What should I expect during the procedure? Will it hurt?

  • Your skin will be given an injection with a numbing agent at the site where the doctor will insert the catheter into your vein. You will feel a pinprick sensation upon getting the injection.
  • Your doctor will insert the catheter into your vein once your skin is completely numb. You will feel some pressure during this as they place the catheter into alignment.
  • The medical adhesive that is delivered into the vein needs to be distributed into various places of the vein. You may feel pressure during the movement of the catheter.
  • Your doctor will be using ultrasound guidance to ensure they administer the medical adhesive in the proper locations along the diseased vein.
  • After releasing the medical adhesive into the vein, your doctor will remove the catheter and then place a bandage over the site where he/she entered the skin with the catheter.

Q: Am I able to walk and drive after receiving VenaSeal™ ?

  • Yes, you will be able to walk and drive immediately following the VenaSeal™ procedure.
  • There is practically no recovery time needed. You can go about your normal activities, although your doctor may give you specific instructions on what they recommend for the next 24 hours in regards to activity.

Q: What happens to the medical adhesive in the vein?

  • The medical adhesive will close off the vein and will be safely absorbed by your body.
  • The diseased vein will also be absorbed by your body in the coming weeks.

Everyone was so nice and professional from the front desk, nurse practitioners, OR team and let’s not forget Dr. Magnant. I had swelling for 13 years and after having venous ablations on both my legs my swelling has gone away! Thanks so much vein Specialist team you guys are amazing!

    Great experience so far. The reception people were great. I can mention Addie who discussed my options, she was knowledgeable and friendly. Also Nadine made buying compression stocking less of a chore. Guys just don't do stockings. Looking forward to correcting my not-so-well functioning veins (and get rid of the knee highs).

    Thank you Dr. Magnant for your amazing work. I had 3 types of vein treatments in both my legs this month. It's a fabulous feeling & seeing the results of having no more pain & swelling. My only regret is that I didn't find you 8 years ago when I started having problems. Best part of it, was your surgical table side manner. Thank you for making me laugh!

    I would highly recommend Dr. Magnant and his staff. I went to Dr. Magnant because of years of leg swelling and pain. My calves were so swollen all of the time that I could not wear boots that were not "wide calf". My shoes always had to be "wide" because my feet would swell terribly by the end of the day. Forget about being able to wear the cute rainboots. My ankles had also disappeared for what I assumed would be for life! My job was very demanding and required weekly travel, which I attributed to the difficulty with my legs swelling and pain.

    I wish I had known about venous insufficiency and varicose veins much earlier in my life. I feel that I suffered for no good reason other than lack of knowledge. My leg issues actually started in my 30's and now in my early 50's I realize something could be done.

    After having a consultation with Sharon, ARNP, she said that I "checked all of the boxes" for venous insufficiency and varicose veins. Sharon did a great job explaining what venous insufficiency and varicose veins are and how they affect my body. She also provided me with brochures about my "disease" , which I was grateful to have because I never thought in a million years that I had issues with my veins. Dr. Magnant was wonderful. He walked me through every step of the procedures. He is probably one of the most caring and personable doctors that I have met!

    I had two procedures in each leg. Now I have ankles again and I can see the bone! My calves are no longer swollen and I can even wear rainboots for the first time in my life! And I have lost six pounds without even trying! I can now toss the "wide calf" boots! Thank you Dr. Magnant!

    I went to see Dr. Magnant for a varicose vein I didn’t like. Sometimes I had restless legs & swelling. Being in my 30’s I never thought that what I thought was a superficial problem could have lead to more serious problems later in life and other problems I was having already were all related to my veins. Dr. Magnant makes you feel so comfortable and is really good at distracting you while doing the procedure that’s it feels so quick and painless. I have already recommended ppl go see him because why should anyone wait till the problem is severe. If you have thought about it go see him he’s the best:))
