Dr. Fritz will recommend a treatment plan specifically tailored to your particular condition.
Compression Hose (Support Stockings) Graduated compression hose compress the surface veins forcing blood to the deeper veins systems, reducing the symptoms associated with CVI which include swelling, tired, aching and heavy feeling legs.
EVLA – Endovenous Laser Treatment is quickly becoming the gold standard in the treatment of varicose veins. This procedure is minimally invasive and is done in our office under local anesthesia. EVLA uses laser energy to deliver just the right amount of energy to the targeted tissue causing the vein to close and seal shut.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy- For veins that are too large to be effectively treated with a laser or sclerotherapy, your doctor may recommend phlebectomy. This procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. Through a series of small incisions, pieces of the veins are removed alleviating the unsightly bulging. Scarring is generally minimal. Ambulatory phlebectomy can sometimes be done in combination with EVLA.
Spider Vein Sclerotherapy- This procedure, which takes approximately 30 mins, consists of injecting a solution into the spider veins. The solution causes an irritation to the vein wall which results in the vein collapsing preventing blood from filling the vein. Each vein can respond differently and may require an additional injection to achieve the desired result. This is considered a cosmetic procedure and generally not covered by insurance.
