Aren’t All Vein Centers the Same?
As with any medical issue, early detection is essential to successful treatment. Our capable medical staff can quickly and efficiently identify your vein problems and create a course of action. It’s important that a reputable vein center examine your veins, as a lesser treatment center may misdiagnose your problem and cause the situation to go from bad to worse. Dr. Bowers is double board certified in both surgery and venous disease. His over twenty-five years of proven experience have been dedicated to the treatment and healing of vein diseases.
Bowers Vein Clinic has both cutting edge and proven methods of treatment. If you are suffering from large varicose veins in your legs, an advanced procedure called Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is often the preferred course of treatment. The procedure uses a laser to heat the inside of the vein, which seals it and causes its collapse; the body then dissolves it permanently. If occasional EVLA is not enough to remove numerous varicose veins alone, an additional procedure called ambulatory phlebectomy micro-extraction may be required to complete the job. Tiny incisions are made in the leg and a small hook is used to extract the offending veins. Most patients can return to their daily activities twenty-four hours after the procedure.
Another proven method to remove large varicose veins is Ambulatory Phlebectomy. The procedure removes varicose veins by minute incisions made in the skin through which the offending veins can be safely removed. It is done on an outpatient basis and in most instances no stitches are required.
The most frequent and successful treatment for small varicose veins is a procedure called Sclerotherapy. Decades of positive results from this simple procedure account for its continued use today. A sclerosing agent is injected into the unsightly veins via a needle. The treatment causes veins to swell, collapse and ultimately be absorbed into the body.
