Vein Services & Varicose Vein Treatment
Many people have vein problems and are not even aware of it, or know that failure to treat vein disease correctly can lead to significant problems in the future. At NSCC, we offer the most advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques for dealing with unsightly, painful varicose veins or improving the appearance of your legs.
Compression of the legs with custom-measured graduated compression stockings is the first line of therapy. It not only reduces the volume of blood backing-up into the legs causing pain and swelling, but also increases the amount of blood properly exiting the legs. This conservative measure alone can significantly reduce symptoms, swelling and inflammation.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy (micro-phlebectomy)
A minimally invasive method for treating small varicose veins, where a small hook is used to remove the vein through tiny incisions after the skin is numbed with anesthetic. As the incisions are extremely small, stitches are rarely needed.
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT)
This innovative treatment eliminates the need for surgery by threading a thin laser fiber up the saphenous vein in the thigh from below the knee to the groin. The fiber is slowly withdrawn while the laser delivers pulses of energy inside the vein, causing it to close. By this technique, the enlarged, painful veins are deflated. The blood is now redirected to drain from the legs through correctly functioning deep veins which in many cases relieves the congestion and pain.
A solution is injected directly into unsightly spider veins causing them to collapse and become reabsorbed into the body. Spider veins are delicate, fern-like, red to purple colored blood vessels that occur in patches on the legs. They tend to develop in clusters, frequently around the knees and ankles.
Although spider veins do not lead to varicose veins, they may coexist. Unlike varicose veins, spider veins may not produce any symptoms at all and are primarily a cosmetic problem. While they do not typically pose a health threat, they can cause itching and burning.
