Endovenous Laser Ablation



Welcome to The Vein Center

Established in 2004, the Vein Center is dedicated to the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Our physicians perform the Ambulatory Phlebectomy procedure for varicose veins using the sutureless European microsurgery technique.

The Vein Center has also been on the cutting edge in the cosmetic treatment of unattractive spider veins using both the latest technology (laser) and the latest techniques (foam sclerotherapy) as well as traditional sclerotherapy.

At The Vein Center, diagnosis and treatment of leg conditions attributable to varicose veins are performed. Often a person may not have large, bulging veins, but tired, aching, swelling, restless legs – all can be signs of veins not working properly. An initial consultation is performed and an ultrasound of the legs is scheduled. The ultrasound indicates if the veins are normal, or if they are refluxing – a condition resulting from defective vein structure allowing blood to flow backward down the legs. The backward flow of blood and increase in pressure it causes in the legs lead to problems with aching, swelling, restlessness and visible varicose veins. Based on ultrasound results, a treatment plan is outlined. Often the ultrasound and the treatment programs are covered by insurance.
