Chronic venous insufficiency is a group of conditions resulting in enlarged or varicose veins in the legs, which make it difficult for blood to return to the heart.
The superficial venous system
We address this condition using a combination of treatments starting with compression stockings, leg elevation or weight loss. If any of these do not provide relief, your physician can offer you non-surgical treatment using thermal ablation therapy, which uses heat to “close off” the problematic veins so that blood can circulate in your healthy veins.
The deep venous system
This is targeted to the veins in your pelvic area, which may be narrowed due to a history of blood clots or from being “compressed.” The treatments used are similar to superficial venous insufficiency, however, your physician may also offer you non-surgical treatments such as blood thinner medication and/or stent placement.
