Varicose veins

Our practice is expanding our general surgery services to include treatment for blood vessel conditions, both medically necessary and aesthetic. Our doctors are skilled in performing minimally invasive treatments for varicose and spider veins right in our office.


Treating varicose veins

Our office offers varicose vein screening and laser and catheter-based treatments. Many patients notice a significant change in vein appearance after one treatment of radiofrequency ablation and sclerotherapy. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that involves applying heat to the walls of varicose veins. As the vein heals, the appearance of varicose veins is reduced. Sclerotherapy involves injecting the veins to be treated with a medicine that causes them to shrink.


Vascular disease

Vascular diseases do not always have symptoms. You may be at a higher risk for vascular disease if you have high cholesterol or live a sedentary lifestyle. We perform treatments for peripheral vascular disease at HCA Florida Raulerson Hospital.
