TYPES OF VEINS WE TREAT
TREATING VARICOSE VEINS
Nanticoke Memorial Hospital offers a non-surgical procedure that is safe, virtually painless and requires little-to-no downtime. Using the VenaCureEVLT™ vein laser treatment, a thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein. Using a highly concentrated beam of light, the treatment closes the vein, sealing it shut. Since varicose veins are superficial veins and handle less than 5% of your blood flow, closing the vein is safe. The body automatically re-routes the blood through other veins.
After treatment, the appearance of the abnormal vein is instantly improved with minimal to no scarring. There may be some slight swelling around the treatment site. Once this subsides, you will see a significant difference in the appearance of your legs. Many people experience other vein conditions that may need to be treated with supplementary therapies. Your physician may recommend additional procedures such as micro-phlebectomy and sclerotherapy.
Your doctor will review with this procedure and other available options for treating varicose veins to determine what is right for you.
