Dr. Todd believes that varicose vein treatments should be emotionally and physically comfortable. As such, we discuss every step of the varicose vein treatment with our patients to assure them that the experience will be painless and comfortable. However, most patients are often apprehensive of varicose vein treatments during their initial consultation due to the mistaken belief that varicose vein treatments are surgical and complex. In the past, varicose vein treatments were surgical, risky, and complicated. However, modern varicose vein treatments are minimally-invasive and don’t require hospitalization. In this article, we discuss the details of all possible varicose vein treatments available in Freehold, NJ.
Summary of vein disease diagnoses and the best minimally invasive varicose vein treatments in Freehold, NJ.
- Duplex Ultrasound: This is a vascular imaging test used to visualize the blood flow in your veins to determine the root cause of vein problems.
- Radiofrequency Ablation: The use of thermal energy to collapse the diseased saphenous vein responsible for varicose veins.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation: The use of laser energy to collapse the diseased saphenous vein responsible for varicose veins.
- VenaSeal: The use of medical adhesives to seal the walls of the saphenous vein responsible for varicose veins.
- Sclerotherapy: This is a medicine injected into the spider veins to remove them from the skin’s surface.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This is a cosmetic procedure used to remove the visible superficial varicose veins from the skin’s surface.
Most vein conditions, including spider veins, varicose veins, restless legs syndrome, leg heaviness, and frequent leg cramps, are caused by an underlying circulatory disorder. Venous insufficiency is a medical condition in which your vein valves collapse, and blood accumulates in your leg veins by flowing backward due to gravity. Over time, the continued accumulation of blood in leg veins leads to vein dilation, which leads to varicose veins and spider veins.
If you don’t have underlying vein disease, our vein doctor will simply treat the surface symptoms. However, if you have vein disease, our vein doctor will recommend varicose vein treatments to address the underlying condition. Duplex Ultrasound is a vascular imaging test used to diagnose the root cause of vein conditions. During the vascular imaging test, our vascular surgeon visualizes the direction of blood flow in your leg veins. This test reveals if you have underlying venous insufficiency.
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment in which the vein doctor uses thermal energy to collapse the diseased saphenous vein. The vein doctor inserts a catheter through an incision on the skin and under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged inside the diseased saphenous vein, the vascular surgeon activates it to generate thermal energy. The heat energy from the catheter collapses the problematic vein. The accumulated blood automatically flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Radiofrequency ablation is eligible for insurance coverage because it’s medically necessary.
Endovenous Laser Ablation
Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein procedure in which the vein doctor uses laser energy to collapse the affected saphenous vein. The vascular surgeon inserts an endovenous laser into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance and through an incision on the skin. Once the laser fiber is in place, the vascular surgeon applies tumescent anesthesia and activates the laser to destroy the problematic saphenous vein. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Endovenous laser ablation is eligible for insurance coverage because it’s medically necessary.
VenaSeal is a medical adhesive injected into the diseased saphenous vein’s walls under ultrasound guidance. The medical adhesive seals the saphenous vein’s walls, essentially shutting it down. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins. The diseased vein hardens into scar tissue, eventually getting absorbed by the body. VenaSeal isn’t eligible for insurance coverage because it’s a relatively new procedure and has only recently received FDA approval.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor injects the sclerosant solution into the spider veins. Sclerotherapy seals the walls of the veins, turning them into hardened scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body and fade away from the skin. Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure because it only removes the visible spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. As such, it’s not eligible for insurance coverage.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to physically remove superficial varicose veins through incisions on the skin’s surface. Like sclerotherapy, this varicose vein treatment only removes the visible symptoms without addressing the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins. As such, it’s a cosmetic procedure ineligible for insurance coverage.
