Exceptional, Convenient Treatment for Vein Conditions
EmergeOrtho’s Vein Clinic was designed to diagnose and treat varicose veins and other diseases that affect the veins. We’ve efficiently combined the expertise of our physicians with a pleasant outpatient setting to bring you state-of-the-art technology and compassionate care. EmergeOrtho offers a variety of advanced, minimally invasive therapies to treat malfunctioning veins.
Not all vein problems are visible. Many patients may not realize that their veins aren’t functioning properly. If not treated, this condition can lead to several lower extremity problems such as:
- Pain or burning in your legs
- Changes in skin color
- Wound formation
The diagnosis of incompetent veins or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is made with simple physical examination and ultrasound. Minimally invasive therapies are available to treat malfunctioning veins. These treatments include:
- Catheter-based thermal ablation of an incompetent vein This technique uses heat to collapse the vein, allowing the body to reabsorb it.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
This technique is used to treat malfunctioning veins that are often not visible with physical examination but are discovered with ultrasound imaging. We use ultrasound guidance to direct a small catheter with a laser fiber tip into the abnormal vein. Then we “collapse” the vein against the catheter. This causes the body to reabsorb the vein. This procedure, which is performed under local anesthesia, is over 95% successful.
- Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
RFA is similar to EVLA, except it utilizes radio frequency to collapse the vein rather than laser.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
this procedure is performed to remove unwanted visible varicosities. The veins to be removed identified, marked, and then dilute numbing medicine is injected around the veins. The veins or remove through tiny 2 mm incisions. This is an in office procedure. Often, the patient can return to work the following day.”
- Sclerotherapy This nonsurgical technique is often used as an adjunct or alternative for treatment of smaller varicose veins and spider veins. The veins to be treated are identified, and then the sclerosant (an irritant) is injected into the veins at several locations. This irritant causes inflammation, and as a result, the unwanted veins are reabsorbed into your system. Patients can immediately return to work after this procedure.
Recovery time is quite short, as patients may return to work immediately or following one day of rest. Patients may also return to all normal activities (including heavy exercise) within 1-2 weeks.
EmergeOrtho’s physicians are current on the latest technology to assist our Vein Clinic patients emerge stronger. Patient-centered care is at the heart of all that we do. We are dedicated to providing the best possible treatment with state-of-the-art technology and compassionate care.
