Patient Education - Vein Care
There are a plethora of websites on the internet that provide health information, but unfortunately, many of them are either inaccurate or out-of-date. The following is a compilation of online resources that we trust to provide reliable, current information about vein disorders and treatment methods:
The Venefit™ procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to vein stripping for the treatment of varicose veins and its common underlying cause, venous reflux. Varicose veins are swollen, dark blue or purple blood vessels that you can see and feel beneath the skin. They often look like twisted cords, and usually appear on the calves, inside of the legs and ankles.
Vein Directory is a leading resource for vein treatment online. The site provides medical information to consumers, including the causes of vein disease, the types of treatments available, and the latest news about vein disorders.
Asclera is FDA approved and utilized in the practice for both liquid and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.
American College of Phlebology:
