MicrosclerotherapyAmbulatory Phlebectomy, Endoscopic Vein Surgery, Endovenous Laser TreatmentEndovenous Radiofrequency TreatmentCoil EmbolizationVein Stripping, and advanced sclerotherapy techniques to heal even the most difficult veins. Your vein doctor will customize a treatment plan based on your symptoms and personal goals.


ClariVein® treatment for varicose veins is also known as mechanochemical endovenous ablation. It involves mechanical and chemical treatments to close diseased veins (ablation). And the procedure occurs inside the vein (endovenous).


Varithena is a procedure that uses an FDA-approved microfoam to treat varicose veins and venous reflux disease. Varithena is administered under ultrasound guidance to ensure accuracy. It has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of varicose veins, as well as associated symptoms.


VenaSeal uses a medical glue to close affected veins. This special glue holds the walls of the vein together, stopping and then redirecting the blood flow to healthy veins. With time, your body will absorb the inactive veins, and they will disappear.


Phlebectomy (also known as microphlebectomy, ambulatory phlebectomy, or stab avulsion) is a technique to remove varicose veins. In this procedure, several tiny cuts (incisions) are made in the skin through which the varicosed vein is removed. Stitches usually are not required.


Injection microsclerotherapy is a treatment for spider veins which involves injecting a chemical substance called “sclerosant” using fine needles. The sclerosant irritates the inner wall of the veins and causes them to become inflamed; the vein walls then stick together and the vein disappears.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

An ambulatory phlebectomy is performed to remove superficial or troublesome varicose veins near the surface of the skin. By making small incisions on the skin, the veins can be easily removed, without even needing stitches.

Endoscopic Vein Surgery

For endoscopic (en-do-SKOP-ik) vein surgery, your doctor will make a small cut in your skin near a varicose vein. He or she then uses a tiny camera at the end of a thin tube to move through the vein. A surgical device at the end of the camera is used to close the vein.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

During EVLT, a laser fiber is threaded along the course of the diseased vein and the fiber is pulled out slowly, resulting in closure of the vein. This is an outpatient procedure done with topical or local anesthesia, and takes about 45 minutes with minimal downtime. Immediately after the procedure, the patient can drive home, return to work, and resume a normal routine.

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

During radiofrequency ablation, a small incision is made through which a catheter is inserted into the targeted vein. Once precisely placed, the catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the wall of the vein, causing the vein to collapse and seal so that blood can no longer travel through it. After the radiofrequency procedure, patients may experience mild bruising and swelling in the treated area, but are usually able to return to your regular activities shortly after treatment.

Coil Embolization

Coil embolization is a catheter-based procedure that allows precise closure of abnormal blood flow in a blood vessel. A catheter with a metallic occluding coil is inserted into an artery, usually in the groin (the femoral artery). It is then advanced to the abnormal blood vessel.

Surgical Stripping of Veins

Surgical stripping has been the traditional varicose vein treatment. It is usually performed under general or spinal anesthesia in the hospital. Incisions are made along the course of the vein and the vein is stripped out in pieces. The surgical incisions are closed by stitches. Recovery time after surgical stripping may be 2 to 3 weeks.


Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for improving the appearance of varicose and spider veins on the legs. It is also performed to treat symptoms caused by these conditions, such as aching, swelling and burning. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution directly into the varicose or spider vein.

In this procedure a liquid called a sclerosant is injected into the affected vein to cause it to close and stop carrying blood. Sclerotherapy does not require an anesthetic, and is performed in about one hour with little or no discomfort.

About Varicose Vein 

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins. Varicose veins can happen anywhere in the body, but are more common in the legs.

Varicose veins are not considered a serious medical condition. But, they can be uncomfortable and can lead to more serious problems. And, because they may be very noticeable, they may cause people to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
