Varicose Veins Treatment Options
At Capitol Vein and Laser Centers, we offer a range of minimally invasive procedures to eliminate varicose veins and make legs look better and feel healthier. Drs. Paul McNeill and Garth Rosenberg have decades of experience treating venous insufficiency, the leading cause of varicose veins. Our expert staff strives to inform patients and advise each person on the best treatment options for her or him.
Gone are the days of “vein stripping,” an old school procedure that is highly invasive and very painful. Instead, we offer latest high-tech solutions that can be performed in-office under local anesthesia and require little to no down time. Varicose vein treatments are typically covered by insurance plans as they are considered to be medically necessary.
Varicose Vein Treatments
- Venefit (previously known as VNUS Closure) is used to manage venous insufficiency, the most common cause of varicose veins.
- ClariVein combines sclerotherapy with manipulation of the interior vein to eliminate the source of venous reflux.
- Microphlebectomy can be used as a follow-up to the Venefit procedure to remove larger varicose veins.
- “Rethink Varicose Veins” is a national campaign featuring Summer Sanders, an Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer. Sponsored by Covidien, Rethink Varicose Veins encourages both men and women to educate themselves about the risks and symptoms, and to visit a vein specialist for a varicose vein screening.
These varicose vein procedures are offered in each of our conveniently located offices: Bethesda, Maryland; and Frederick, Maryland; Leesburg, Virginia; and Charles Town, West Virginia. Contact us today, to schedule an appointment.
