Our VEIN TREATMENT CENTER is now accepting patients! – We have started a vein treatment center to help our patients suffering from complications of venous reflux disease. Appropriate candidates can now undergo a minimally invasive endoscopic laser therapy as an outpatient instead of the traditional surgical vein stripping. This technique requires little or no sedation and is done in the office. If you have varicose veins, leg swelling, darkening of the skin of your legs and ankles, healed or active leg ulcers then you could be good candidate for endovenous laser ablation and you can consider a referral to a vein treatment center. We also treat spider and reticular veins as well. If you have any questions about our vein treatment center, please feel free to call us or make an appointment!
