Dr. Daniel Elieff at Midwest Vein Institute (an affiliate of Midwest Clinic of Dermatology) offers the most advanced treatments for leg vein problems.
Varicose veins are one of the most common vascular diseases, affecting approximately 25% of women and 15% of men in the U.S. Historically, a treatment known as vein stripping was used to treat this condition. Vein stripping was performed in an operating room, under general anesthesia, and was associated with a painful and lengthy recovery period. Since vein stripping only removes the varicose vein, but does not treat the original cause of the vein disease, the veins and the symptoms often recur after 2-3 years. For this reason, many individuals chose to suffer with the symptoms, and others were condemned to a lifetime with miserable, heavy support stockings.
Midwest Vein Institute offers two methods of treatment for varicose veins EVLA & Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy Which treatment is right for you depends on medical history and severity of leg veins.
