Over 25 million Americans suffer daily with painful swollen legs as a result of venous disease. Called venous insufficiency, this condition is the result of faulty valves in the veins and is usually associated with bulging varicose veins. Are you one of those Americans suffering from varicose veins or spider veins?
Berger Vein Specialists are trained to get you back to looking and feeling your best. Our physicians use minimally invasive treatments, such as endovenous laser treatment and sclerotherapy. Patients are able to walk out after the procedure and return to their normal activities the same day.
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT)
EVLT is a quick, minimally invasive laser procedure that provides relief from painful and unsightly varicose veins. EVLT has a 98 percent success rate.
This procedure is the gold standard treatment for spider veins. Sclerotherapy is extremely effective. Tiny microinjections of medications cause the treated veins to collapse and disappear. Since the injection needle is so small, patients often feel little pain and do not require any anesthesia.
In many cases, varicose vein treatments are covered by insurance, but spider vein treatments are considered a cosmetic procedure that may not be covered by your insurance. Please check with your insurance carrier prior to your appointment. Any charges not covered by insurance will be the patient's responsibility.
A referral from your doctor may be needed. Your doctor will know if our vein specialty program will benefit you.
