Cutting Edge Treatments at Precision VIR

Tired of uncomfortable, unsightly vein problems? Learn about the available treatments to identify the best one for you. Without treatment, a minor problem with your veins can get much worse. So it’s important to see a vein doctor like the specialists at Precision VIR for an evaluation. Following are a few of the safe, effective and minimally-invasive procedures we use to help patients with vein issues.

Microphlebectomy

treatment with microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is a procedure that involves removal of the varicose veins through tiny surgical incisions. This is the recommended treatment for large superficial varicose veins. Due to their size and location, these veins cannot be effectively treated with sclerotherapy and are superficial to the skin to treat with ablation. Removal of the veins with microphlebectomy results in quicker healing, less pain, and a better cosmetic result than would occur without this treatment.With microphlebectomy, varicose veins are removed through small microblephectomy-blurbincision, which leave virtually no scars.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

At Precision VIR, sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment of common spider and small varicose veins, without the need of anesthesia, performed in the office. It is can used to treat spider veins visible at the surface of the skin. It also applies to treatment of veins that are deeper under the skin surface, which is aided with the use of ultrasound guidance. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a chemical sclerosant directly into the diseased vein, causing a local irritation and ultimately causes the vein to close. The solution can be in a liquid or foam. The sclerosant we use at Precision VIR is the safest and most effective on the market. Learn more.

ClariVein

clarivein-treatmentYou should contact your doctor immediately if you suspect that you have a DVT. Your doctor will examine you and conduct some tests to determine if a clot is present. If a clot is present, your doctor will determine the severity of the clot. Blood tests and imaging tests are commonly conducted. A Doppler ultrasound of the legs may identify a blood clot by using sound waves to create an image when a device is gently placed on your skin. A venography is used to identify blood clots in a procedure that uses X-rays and dye administered through a catheter that is inserted into a vein. You may receive a general or local anesthesia for the procedure. An impedance plethysmography is a non-invasive blood circulation test used to detect the presence of a blood clot. It may be used as an alternative to a venography. Learn more.

ClosureFast Targeted Endovenous Therapy

ClosureFast Varicose Vein Treatment

DVTs may be treated with blood thinning medications called anticoagulants or clot-busting medications termed thrombolytic therapy. In some cases, clots are removed with a catheter or surgery. People that cannot tolerate or do not respond to anticoagulation may have a permanent filter inserted in their vein. The filter prevents large embolisms from entering the lungs but it does not stop blood clots from developing. Learn more.
