Dr. John Chuback at the Chuback Medical Group in Bergen County, NJ, has extensive training and experience in treating vascular disease using the most modern and effective techniques available. In this article he explains the most common vein treatments and what you can expect during your appointment.
What are the most common vein disease treatments?
The goal of varicose vein treatments and spider vein treatments is to close or seal the diseased vein permanently so that the body reroutes the blood through healthier veins nearby. The three most common techniques include endovenous laser treatment (EVLT treatment), microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy by a laser expert.
EVLT treatment involves using heat from a precise laser beam to close and permanently seal the diseased vein.
Microphlebectomy involves removing the diseased veins with a small instrument, through tiny incisions in the skin
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution into the problem veins, causing them to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body. Laser sclerotherapy is a variation of this technique that causes a vasospasm or closing of the vein that is particularly effective for spider veins.
The trained spider vein specialists and varicose vein doctors at Chuback Medical Group have extensive experience in the use of these techniques and have found they are effective in the treatment of varicose veins and in improving both vascular health and aesthetic properties of the legs.
What can I expect during my procedure?
Vein disease treatments have come a long way from previous decades, in which patients had to go to a hospital, have general anesthesia, and spend a significant amount of time recovering. At Chuback Medical Group in Paramus, New Jersey, we offer all the latest techniques by trained spider vein specialists and vein disease specialists, with no need to visit a hospital or have general anesthetics.
All the procedures are done in our Paramus, New Jersey office. On the day of your procedure, you’ll be administered local anesthetic. Most procedures can be completed within an hour. Recovery times are minimal and you can return to your usual daily activities the same or next day, depending on the advice of your physician. You will be prescribed compression stockings to help ensure that the sealed veins stay closed and that the blood is properly rerouted through healthy veins. At your follow-up appointment, your physician will assess the success of the procedure and determine if any further treatments are needed.
If you have any questions about your upcoming treatment, please call Dr. John Chuback at 201.430.2737. We can answer your questions over the phone or make an appointment for you, as you wish. Our goal is to provide you with effective, comfortable vein disease treatments that fit your individual needs and that will help to improve your overall health and well-being.
