The pain and discomfort of varicose veins shouldn’t mean an end to the activities you enjoy. That’s why Beaumont offers innovative, minimally invasive solutions for varicose veins.
Our board-certified Beaumont doctor offers minimally invasive treatment in a comfortable and convenient outpatient environment. VarithenaTM, laser ablation and radiofrequency ablation are available.
This location is a part of Beaumont Hospital, Troy.
Two types of vein ablation are available: laser and radiofrequency.
VarithenaTM is a new, non-surgical treatment in which a gentle microfoam treatment is delivered to your veins in as few as one to two needle sticks. This treatment option is nearly painless with little to no downtime. For most people, VarithenaTM improves both physical symptoms related to varicose veins and their appearance.
Laser vein ablation is proven to achieve excellent results by delivering a highly concentrated beam of light to the targeted tissue. Radiofrequency ablation uses a burst of radiofrequency energy directed to the vein walls.
Performed under ultrasound guidance, both treatments cause the vessel to close and the body automatically re-routes the blood to other healthy veins. Both treatments have proven to be 97% effective.
Unlike surgical interventions such as vein stripping, both VarithenaTM and vein ablation are minimally invasive procedures that do not involve anesthesia or even stitches. Both options take less than an hour and you’ll be up and walking as soon as the procedure is over. Most patients resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Most treatments are covered by most health insurance companies. Check your policy and call your insurance provider to find out what your coverage is.
This office is now offering video appointments. A video appointment is a convenient and secure way to receive care from your doctor using a smartphone, tablet or computer.
