Sometimes, despite your best efforts, the damage to your veins may be too great for them to heal themselves properly. Regardless if this is from an injury or disease, you may need the services of a skilled vascular surgeon to remove these damaged veins. Vein removal is one of our specialties at Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh.
There are several procedures available at our clinics that can help with vein removal. Our doctors are board certified in vascular medicine, making them one of the best choices for vein removal.
Some of our procedures include:
Endovenous Laser Ablation – This advanced treatment is used for the treatment of varicose veins. After the skin is numbed using a topical anesthetic, a thin tube is inserted into the vein being treated. A laser is pushed through the tube slowly to heat the vein until it collapses. Once the tube is removed, you can resume your day. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and does not leave any scars.
Sclerotherapy – This treatment is effective when treating spider veins and varicose veins. A hardening solution is injected into the veins to seal it shut, causing it to fade away after a few weeks. While more effective in treating smaller veins, larger veins can also benefit from this treatment. No downtime is needed with this procedure.
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 diagnose 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.
