At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, we are your premier destination for the safe and minimally-invasive treatment of spider and varicose veins. Although it may seem normal for your legs to feel heavy and tired at the end of a long day, these are symptoms of deficient veins, and you no longer have to live with these symptoms. At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, we specialize in the minimally-invasive treatment of spider and varicose veins to improve your circulation and restore your quality of life.
What are some common vascular problems you treat at your facility?
A common vascular problem we treat is Spider Veins. These red, blue, purple, or pinkish lines can appear on the skin. Often arranged like spider legs, this condition can cause achy feelings in your legs, swelling, itchiness, and even burning or throbbing sensation. These can appear for a variety of reasons, including pregnancy, obesity or if your career has you standing for long periods of time during the day. At the Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, we offer Sclerotherapy. This process helps heal the diseased vein and over time greatly improve the appearance of your skin and in some cases, completely erases your spider veins. This treatment takes less than an hour, and you can almost immediately resume most normal activities.
Another vascular issue we see in our facility are Varicose Veins. These are veins that have become enlarged or misshapen. This condition effects the ability of a vein to function properly, affecting your overall health. Nearly 30% of the population have this medical issue, and we can help at our clinic. These symptoms often indicated varicose veins:
- Hard to exercise
- Tenderness around the vein
- Muscle Cramps
- Itching or burning
- Restless Legs
- Changes to skin
Come to our center today for a consultation so our experts can evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment for you. Available treatments include Endovenous Laser Ablation/Therapy, Ambulatory Phlebectomy, VenaSeal, and Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy. One or a combination of these therapies can greatly assist in reducing the symptoms of this condition and improving your overall health.
How do you diagnose vascular issues?
We have our very own Vascular Lab at the Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh. Just like when a doctor goes to their lab to test for flu or strep throat, our doctors go to our vascular lab to screen and test for common vascular problems. We can diagnose your vein issues and then customize a treatment plan to help you feel better.
We use a Terason portable ultrasound machine to help us quickly and accurately diagnoses any problems with your veins in your legs, arms, or neck. We can also examine the carotid arteries and lower leg veins. These two areas are critical to your overall vascular health. If we see there are problems here, a serious disease is much more likely to present itself. Catching these medical issues early not only makes it easier to keep you healthy but also saves you money.

Dr. Valerie Drnovsek
She is a founding physician of Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh and Interventional Solutions Inc. Her interest in image guided percutaneous procedures evolved during ACGME accredited residency training at LSUHSC in New Orleans which provided ample opportunity for participation in minimally invasive imaging guided percutaneous interventions. Accomplishing excellent outcomes with minimum downtime, frequently without overnight stay at the hospital appealed to her.
It was a driving force to pursue ACGME accredited fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston affiliated with Harvard Medical School. It was a thriving interdisciplinary environment which allowed her to hone her clinical skills and advance technical proficiency in minimally invasive percutaneous surgical procedures. In the state with most rigorous credentialing criteria for thermal ablation in venous disease she expanded her interest in lasers to clinical practice. Dr. Valerie Drnovsek is a member of American College of Phlebology, American Academy for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery and Senior Member of ASNR.
At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, some of our superior quality services include endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), ambulatory phlebectomy, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, and visual sclerotherapy.
