Varicose Vein Treatments

VARICOSE VEIN TREATMENTS      DIALYSIS ACCESS MANAGEMENT      PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE CARE      ADDITIONAL MEDICAL SERVICES   

Verrazano Vascular Associates offers personal, individualized care for patients with vein disease utilizing a comprehensive, non-surgical approach to treat aesthetic and therapeutic problems. Vein conditions and their treatments are often more complex than they appear. Beyond obvious leg swelling or varicose veins, symptoms may include aching, cramping, heaviness, tired or restless legs, itching, tingling, and burning, as well as skin changes, scaly rashes, and slow or non-healing wounds.

To schedule a consultation call 718.370.0307, email Verrazano@fvc-na.com, or use our Appointment Form at the bottom of the page.


Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

Endovenous radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment utilizing thermal energy. It involves the insertion of a catheter (a thin, flexible tube) into a refluxing or backward-flowing vein to seal it shut using heat. Blood is re-routed into normal, healthy veins alleviating reflux symptoms. Over time, the treated vein shrinks and is absorbed by the body. Compared to surgical options such as ligation and vein stripping, endovenous ablation results in less pain and has a quicker recovery time.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

In sclerotherapy, a tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. Over a short time, the vein closes in response to the irritation and is reabsorbed. The blood from the closed vein is routed to properly working veins, restoring correct circulation and improving overall appearance.

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive technique used to remove unsightly or painful bulging leg veins and is the recommended treatment for large surface varicose veins. Removal of these veins with microphlebectomy often results in quicker healing, less pain, and a better cosmetic result than would occur other treatments. Performed through tiny nicks in the skin, microphlebectomy is far less invasive than surgical stripping. Recovery is more rapid, and most patients do not need to interrupt regular activity after microphlebectomy.

Compression Therapy for Varicose Veins

Compression Therapy for Varicose Veins

Venous insufficiency, which can lead to the development of varicose veins, can also cause edema (swelling). This is caused by a back-up of blood and increased pressure in the veins. Venous insufficiency is a problem that is localized to the legs, ankles, and feet; one leg may be more affected than the other (asymmetrical edema). Compression Therapy provides a means to treat venous stasis, venous hypertension and venous edema. Objectives of compression therapy are to reduce the swollen limb to minimum size, maintain that size, and allow the patient to participate in the care of his or her limb whenever possible. Treatments can include exercise, wrapping, massage, compression stockings and a compression pump. Graduated Compression Therapy gives support to the legs and helps improve circulation back to the heart. Though this treatment may provide symptomatic relief to your leg pain, it does not prevent or cure varicose veins.
