The process of treating the various venous diseases has evolved greatly over time, and what once was a painful process with a lengthy recovery period is now done as an outpatient procedure. Traditionally, varicose veins were stripped, or removed surgically. But today, the providers at Afzal Clinic use state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive treatments that help close varicose veins without removing them.

Treatment of varicose veins improves circulation in the leg. It resolves pain, discomfort and swelling. Treatment gets rid of big unsightly veins. Insurance may cover some or all of the treatment. Dr.Afzal is considered a regional expert in vein disease care having performed more than 3000 ablations and 120,000 injections.

Spider Veins Afzal Clinics

Spider Veins

Spider Veins are red or blue veins visible on the surface of the skin. The most effective treatment options for spider veins is visual sclerotherapy, which is an injectable solution that dries out the lining of the vein and causes it to disappear. Get rid of the spider vein and get ready for the summer. Healthier looking legs.

Radio Freq Afzal Clinic

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA or Venefit) is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses heat to treat varicose veins. The heat from the radiofrequency catheter damages the vein walls, which closes the vein. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re- routed to other healthy veins.

Phlebectomy

Ambulatory Phlebectomy an alternative to surgical vein stripping. With this in- office technique the ropy visible veins are removed under local anesthesia using small incision sites. After the procedure patient can resume normal activity.

ultrasound-guided-sclerotherapy

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Echosclerotherapy (Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy) is an alternative to surgical vein stripping. With this in-office technique, a liquid or foam injection is inserted into the vein while the doctor visually monitors the vein on an ultrasound screen.

Visual Sclerotherapy Afzal Clinics

Visual Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy, which uses an injected solution to close the vein, is the most common treatment for varicose and spider veins on the legs. When varicose or spider
veins are visible to the eye, there is no need for guided ultrasound, because the provider already knows where to inject.
