Advanced Vein Care Center is a technology driven 21st Century vein practice. As such, we value the importance of keeping current with the latest research and technological advancements entering the field of venous disease today.
A key component in the advancement of Phlebology (the study of veins) and vein procedures has been incorporating technology, most significantly the advent of the Duplex Ultrasound into the practice setting. Specialists can now more accurately detect the root cause of the venous disorder. This is why our state-of-the-art center embraces the latest equipment like Duplex Ultrasound when testing for vein disease, as well as lasers, to administer some of the newer techniques and procedures including endovenous laser treatment (EVLT).
We employ the latest anesthetic techniques so that the patient does not have to undergo general anesthesia. In fact, all our procedures are performed in our office setting under local anesthesia alone. In over 6000 outpatient vein procedures, we have never had any patient who could not tolerate their procedure; our local anesthetic technology is just that superior. Some procedures such as foam sclerotherapy for varicose veins do not even require local anesthesia. For the most involved technical procedure, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), we now use the latest technology, the slow wavelength laser, a relatively lower energy beam, that causes the least amount of surrounding tissue inflammation in the treatment area. As a result, patients often require minimal pain medications afterwards and return to work soon after the procedure.
When performing aesthetic vein procedures, we employ a multi-modal approach to treat various veins of all sizes. Not only do we use ultra-thin needles for sclerotherapy, we also use micropuncture phlebectomy and hand-held thermolysis devices to take care of the large as well as the very tiny spider veins.
Physics. Physiology. And Patients. We are committed to always having the most advanced and modern technologies made available for our patients. This commitment deepens our mission to provide compassionate and modern care.
