Normal veins have one-way valves that permit blood flow back to the heart. If these valves do not function properly, blood pools in the veins causing them to dilate. This can cause pain, swelling, discoloration, a feeling of heaviness, and open sores. Varicose vein evaluations and treatments are covered by most insurance companies. After your procedure, we’ll advise you on a simple at-home care plan that may include the use of a leg wrap or compression stockings to further your healing.

Radio Frequency Vein Closure

Dr. Rubino has performed over 2,000 in-office, virtually pain-free, radio frequency procedures to end the pain, discomfort and unsightliness of varicose veins. With the assistance of ultrasound, a small catheter is inserted into a vein through a tiny incision. Radio-frequency energy, also known as RF, brings heat to the vein to shrink the walls and seal the vein shut. Blood is then naturally redirected to other nearby healthy veins. After the procedure, a band-aid is placed at the small incision site. There is little (if any) pain during the treatment, and minimal or no scarring, bruising or swelling at the vein site.


Varicose Vein Treatments | Ambulatory PhlebectomyPhlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is the surgical removal of small varicose veins in the legs using a local anesthetic. Patients generally experience little to no discomfort, short healing time, and excellent results. Small sections of the affected veins are removed and cauterized. This minimally intrusive procedure does not require any stitches due to the tiny incisions.

Varicose Vein Treatments | Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, also known as endovenous chemical ablation, is a procedure for the treatment of spider veins. Sclerosant is a chemical irritant that is injected into a vein, collapsing and sealing the vein shut. This procedure is virtually painless. Most insurance covers medically necessary sclerotherapy.
