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.

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

  • VNUS Closure is used to manage venous insufficiency, the most common cause of varicose veins. During this procedure, we use radiofrequency to deliver thermal energy to the vein wall, leading to the vein's obliteration. This replaces vein stripping, an outmoded treatment option.
  • ClariVein combines sclerotherapy with manipulation of the interior vein to eliminate the source of venous reflux.
  • Varithena uses a specially formulated foamed sclerotherapy agent to obliterate certain leg veins.
  • VenaSeal allows us instill a newly FDA released "glue" to seal the saphenous vein, the usual feeder vein that causes varicosities. This new agent shows very good potential for patients but medical insurance companies do not currently cover the treatment.
  • Microphlebectomy can be used as a follow-up to the VNUS Closure procedure to remove larger surface 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.
