Welcome to USA Vein Clinics

We are a network of state of the art facilities dedicated to the treatment of venous insufficiency. In each vein center, cardiovascular doctors specialize exclusively in problems with circulation to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan utilizing the most modern equipment and individual approach to each of our patients.

Despite the common belief that people with vein problems always have varicosities, majority of patients do not have visible signs of the disease at all. Instead, they suffer from tiredness, heaviness, swelling, aching pains, burning, itching, cramps, restless leg syndrome, and even non-healing ulcers. While some people develop varicose veins, the others have so-called “spider” veins, yet other ones have swollen legs as a single sign of vein disease. Eventually and regardless of the type of venous disorder, the condition can lead to serious complications, including trophic ulcers, bleeding, infection and even blood clot formation.

All of the above-described problems, as well as many others, can be caused by abnormal circulation in the veins of the lower extremities, a condition called “venous insufficiency”. In each vein center, you will receive a comprehensive consultation, appropriate diagnostic procedures and individually selected treatment provided by caring members of our staff specializing in management and treatment of vein diseases.

Since venous insufficiency is a serious medical condition, it is important to know that the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans. USA Vein Clinics has a dedicated insurance department that will assist you with the process.

USA Vein Clinics is the Customer Rated #1 Vein Doctor in the USA

What Causes Vein Disease?

The veins in your body play a vital role in circulation, transporting blood from various parts of your body back to your heart. As we age, problems can develop in the veins, creating a number of complications. More than one in three Americans over the age of 45 has some kind of vein disease.

Healthy Veins

Diseased Veins

The circulatory system consists of veins and arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that bring the fresh oxygenated blood full of nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body. Veins are vessels that transport blood without oxygen and nutrients back to the heart against gravity. In healthy leg veins, one-way valves allow blood to move only in one direction: upstream towards the heart. In order to do this, when you walk, your leg muscles squeeze the deep veins of your legs and feet pushing the non-oxygenated blood back to the heart. In your veins there are one-way valves that are placed about one inch apart that keep blood flowing in the right direction. When your leg muscles relax, the valves inside your veins close preventing the backward flow of blood back down the legs.

There are three types of veins in your legs: superficial veins, which lie close to the skin, deep veins, which lie in or beneath the muscles, and perforating veins, which connect the superficial to the deep veins. Deep veins bring the blood back to the major vein in your abdomen called the vena cava, which brings the blood straight to the heart.

When a valve fails to function, the blood can begin to pool in your legs and cause a variety of health problems including swollen ankles, blood clots, leg pain, spider veins, varicose veins, and even ulcers. When your leg veins cannot bring enough blood back to the heart, the blood stays in your legs, causing various problems due to venous blood stasis.

If the blood does not move through deep veins, a condition called deep venous thrombosis may arise. If the valves in the superficial system of veins are not working properly, the condition is called superficial venous insufficiency.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins often appear as enlarged veins that twist and bulge in a rope-like pattern. They can be blue, red, or flesh-colored.

Varicose veins are often found on the back of the calves, inner and front thighs, or anywhere in the leg above and below the knee. In addition, they can be found deeper under the surface of your skin. Because varicose veins contain valves that are damaged, they hold more blood at a higher pressure than normal. This extra pressure forces fluid into the surrounding tissue which causes your leg to swell and feel tired and achy.

How We Treat Varicose Veins

Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is an innovative FDA approved non-surgical treatment for the permanent elimination of superficial venous insufficiency, which is a typical cause of large varicose veins, leg swelling, heaviness, cramps, brownish skin discoloration, and non-healing wounds. This technique has been used for over a decade and since 2005 it is considered to be the Gold Standard for the elimination of venous insufficiency and large varicose veins.

It involves a precise insertion of a very thin (less than one millimeter) laser fiber into the diseased veins under real-time ultrasound guidance, followed by an application of laser energy to heat and close the malfunctioning veins, which is called vein closure. Other healthy veins take over normal blood flow in the leg immediately. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body.

Depending on the number of diseased veins more than one procedure may be required. The EVLT procedure is done in our offices, and it usually takes less than 15 minutes from the start of the procedure until it is completed. To prevent discomfort during the procedure we use a local anesthesia similarly to the one used in a dental office. Because of its minimally-invasive nature, an EVLT procedure will not interrupt your normal daily routine. You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after EVLT treatment and even go back to work.

USA Vein Clinics are experts in EVLT treatment. We master this gold standard in the vein care since 2005 and helped more than 10,000 of patients across the United States.

Reticular and Spider Veins

Spider veins are thread-like veins, which often resemble red, blue or purple spider web’s near the skin’s surface.

Reticular and Spider veins are smaller superficial veins (usually less 1 millimeter in diameter), much smaller than varicose veins, but still visible. They are the mildest form of venous insufficiency and rarely cause physical symptoms. They can cover a small or large area of the legs. Although spider veins normally don’t cause discomfort, the deeper veins that are associated with them do.

Telangiectasias—commonly referred to as spider veins—are small (less than 1mm in diameter) red, purple and blue vessels near the surface of the skin. Spider veins typically appear on the legs—ususally around the upper thigh, knee joints and ankles—as well as the face (in the area around the nose, cheeks and chin).

Sclerotherpy Procedure

A tiny needle is used to administer a series of injections that contain small amounts of a sterile solution (usually a salt solution) into the vein. Because the needle is so small, patients do not need any anesthesia and usually feel little pain. In order to ensure precise injections, ultrasound technology is also often used.

The injected solution irritates the inner lining of the vein and causes the vein to swell and seal shut. Over time, the vein will gradually turn into scar tissue and disappear as it is reabsorbed into the surrounding local tissue. The other healthy veins in your leg will then take over the normal blood flow toward the heart.

Utilizing ultra sound technology, the varicose vein is located to allow for precision injection of the schlerosant agent.

Figure 2

Once the sclerosant agent is injected into the vein, it causes the varicose vein to collapse.

Although the same vein may require multiple injections over time, this injection procedure for each session can be performed in our clinic in less than 30 minutes. The total number of veins treated during one session will depend on the size and location of the veins as well as the overall medical health of the patient. Any follow up sessions will be scheduled at least four weeks apart so that the results of the previous treatment can be accurately evaluated.

After treatment, you will wear compression stockings for several days while you are free to resume your normal daily activities. While walking is highly encouraged to prevent the formation of blood clots, the following should be avoided for a few days after the treatment: aerobic activity, hot baths, and excessive exposure to the sun.

Clinical studies have shown an overall success rate of 50 to 80% when sclerotherapy is used to treat varicose and spider veins. Injection sclerotherapy is fully approved by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration).
