The most popular endovenous treatments for painful varicose (ropy) veins and for venous insufficiency are endovenous vein ablation and microphlebectomy. Ablation treats damaged veins by inserting a fiber into the vein, and treating the vein wall. The vein is sealed shut, and gets absorbed by the body. Blood flow is diverted to the adjacent healthy veins. Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive operation performed through multiple tiny incisions in order to remove painful varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy is the most frequent treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins. Dr. Nishanian a Vascular Specialist uses a very fine needle to inject sclerosing solution into the vein, which collapses and is then absorbed by the body. Multiple treatments may be needed for patients who have extensive disease, because sclerotherapy only treats short vein segments.
