Varicose veins are thick, swollen veins that most commonly appear in the legs and feet. People with varicose veins may notice aching, heaviness, and pain surrounding their varicose veins as well as decreased sensation, itching or burning, and even restless legs. Varicose veins are more common as we age, and can be impacted by genetics, certain vocations, and damaged valves. These factors, which contribute to venous insufficiency, can cause more blood to pool in the veins, which increases pressure and causes them to swell and appear more obvious. Thankfully, varicose veins can be treated by an experienced doctor.

There are several treatments available for patients with varicose veins, and they may be used separately or in conjunction depending on the extent and severity of your varicose veins. Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh is proud to offer Endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy to our patients. These treatment methods are tried and tested, proven time and again to help patients suffering from varicose veins to find lasting relief.
During Endovenous laser ablation, a small laser fiber is inserted into the vein that is being targeted and small pulses of energy are used to irritate the vein walls, causing them to close as the laser fiber is removed. An ambulatory phlebectomy requires very small incisions be made into the legs and the dysfunctional veins are removed from the body. This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia, and the incisions are so small that there is no recovery time required. Sclerotherapy has long been one of the most commonly utilized treatments for varicose veins. At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, we utilize advanced ultrasound equipment to precisely target varicose veins that may not yet be visible to the naked eye, making it an especially effective procedure. All of these options help redirect blood to healthier veins, improving circulation and relieving discomfort for patients.
