Venous and Lymphatic Medicine

Unsightly veins — often greeted with as much joy as wrinkles — bring both cosmetic and physical problems. Genetics, hormones, and trauma contribute to their appearance, but there are steps you can take to minimize their occurrence and lessen discomfort.

Elegant new technologies have almost completely replaced conventional vein stripping and the need for large incisions. Our improved treatments require no incisions and rapid return to normal activities.

Treatment times are brief — most procedures require between 10-45 minutes. All of our surgical procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.

Reticular Veins

Reticular veins (sometimes called Feeder Veins) are veins visible beneath the skin that do not usually protrude. These veins feed spider veins and usually have a connection to the deep venous system.

Spider Veins

Spider veins are small, damaged blood vessels that occur just beneath the skin’s surface. Spider veins are most frequent on the legs and face (also called Facial Veins) but can develop elsewhere on the body.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis, or DVT, is the formation of a blood clot in one or more deep veins. These clots can travel to your lungs and cause dangerous conditions like Pulmonary Embolism (PE). PEs are responsible for killing around 50% of patients who experience them without prompt treatment with anticoagulants such as heparin.
