Providing Care to Brick, Galloway, Vineland and Cape May Court House, NJ

The Premier Center to Combat Varicose Veins

Venous disease is a blanket term that includes any abnormalities or diseases in the veins. Whether you are experiencing discomfort, pain, or unsightliness in your legs, you are among the estimated 20-25 million other Americans also suffering from venous reflux disease. Age, weight, pregnancy, occupancy, or even heredity can influence the severity and likeliness of dealing with a venous disease. 

There is a broad spectrum of venous disease ranging from spider veins to varicose veins. Spider veins are the small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles. Although these super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it.

Varicose veins are large, often painful dilated veins under the skin. Varicose veins can become enlarged and in some cases quite prominent. They can be seen in some individuals as raised lumps in the thigh, legs and calves. If you experience bulging leg veins, restless legs, pain, discomfort, swelling, itching, or discoloration in your legs, you may have varicose veins. Treatment of varicose veins is typically more involved, but still minimally invasive.

The Vascular Institute at AMI specializes in providing creative and minimally invasive solutions to the whole spectrum of vein related medical issues.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

The Vascular Institute offers several minimally invasive procedures to treat varicose veins, including:

Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT)

During the EVLT treatment, ultrasound is used to precisely map out your vein. A local anesthetic is applied, and a thin laser fiber is inserted through a tiny entry point, usually near the knee. Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein so that the blood cannot flow through it. This eliminates vein bulging at the source.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which a sclerosing agent is injected through a tiny needle directly into the veins, causing them to contract and collapse. The blood then reroutes to healthy veins.

Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is a procedure to remove varicose veins through tiny incisions in the skin’s surface. The minimally invasive procedure is an effective way to completely remove problem veins from your legs.

SCHEDULING A CONSULTATION

If you are experiencing any of the following, you may want to schedule an initial consultation with our team:

  • Large, swollen blood vessels that accompany spider veins
  • Raised, knotted blood vessels that indicate rope veins
  • Gnarled, twisting blood vessels that alert to varicose veins

During the initial consultation, your legs will be examined for both visible and internal issues.  Venous disease can cause eczema, discoloration, ulcers and bleeding.

After the initial consultation, you will return for another appointment that includes a comprehensive review of your medical history, a physical exam, and an ultrasound. The recommended treatment plan, along with its risks and benefits, the recovery period and the costs will be explained to you. It is important to be open in discussing your treatment goals. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have.
