Cutting Edge Treatment for Varicose Veins & Spider Veins

Painful, swollen legs with bulging "varicose" veins can be treated by several methods. In the past, vein ligation and vein stripping have been the standard. However, Vein Ligation has a high recurrence rate and Vein Stripping is an extremely painful procedure, often requiring an inpatient hospital stay, bed confinement for days, and long recovery.

Varicose veins can cause a variety of symptoms: Leg swelling, aching and pain, tiredness, skin changes, and even skin ulceration (venous stasis ulcers). These issues can lead to severe problems in the quality of life and activities of daily living, and in worst cases, severe infections which may threaten the viability or function of the leg.

Nonsurgical, EndoVenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) of Symptomatic Varicose Veins has become the treatment of choice with high success rates (> 95%), can be performed as an in-office procedure under local anesthesia, and patients walk out of the office immediately afterward. It is an extremely gratifying procedure.

As a Plastic Surgeon with expertise in Microvascular Surgery, Dr. Lee offers the highest level of technical precision to this safe, effective, treatment of Varicose Veins. Most often, these treatments are covered by Insurance.
