Varicose Veins Treatment

The Vein Institute offers patients the latest in minimally invasive varicose vein treatments for  problem varicose veins, including the following:

Endovenous laser ablation and radiofrequency ablation. 

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. 

Medical superglue. Also known as Venaseal.

Before any varicose vein treatment is selected, our team of doctors will give you a thorough and professional venous health examination, supported with duplex ultrasound, to diagnose your condition and help you decide which treatment is best for your particular needs. The use of ultrasound imaging allows the doctor to “see” all the veins beneath the surface of the skin.

Treatment will only be carried out if there is a medical indication as determined by your treating doctor and after risks and benefits have been extensively discussed.
