VenaSeal Vein Closure

VenaSeal™ Vein Treatment

The experienced professionals at Vein Specialists help patients in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs gain healthier legs and a better quality of life through VenaSeal™ vein treatment. This minimally invasive procedure 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.

VenaSeal™ works by:

  • Delivering a specifically formulated medical adhesive agent to close down the diseased veins
  • Re-routing blood to healthy veins
  • Improving vein disease & symptoms

Additional benefits of choosing VenaSeal™ include:

  • Use of local anesthesia with only a single small needle stick required
  • Less potential complications
  • Little to no pain
  • Extremely fast recovery time
  • You can walk and drive immediately following your procedure

You’ll Be on Your Way to Healthier Legs through VenaSeal™ in Four Easy Steps:

  1. Your doctor will take an ultrasound of your leg to assess the affected vein before the VenaSeal™ procedure begins.
  2. After your skin is numbed using a local anesthetic, you will feel some pressure while your doctor expertly places a catheter into the problem vein.
  3. After carefully applying the medical adhesive into the diseased vein, the catheter is removed, and a small bandage is placed over the site where the catheter was inserted.
  4. The medical adhesive will close off the vein. The adhesive and the diseased vein are then absorbed by your body in the months following VenaSeal™ and blood is rerouted through other healthy veins.

There’s no reason to live with painful vein disease. Let the experts at the Vein Specialists in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs help you get back to enjoying life through a simple, yet effective VenaSeal™ vein treatment. Schedule an appointment today!

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.

    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!
