The revolutionary D940 laser is a highly advanced system that physicians are using throughout the world to quickly and safely rid their patients of undesirable spider and varicose veins.

Spider Vein Treatment
The D940 laser produces the highly unique wavelength which safely passes through the skin and is selectively absorbed by the targeted blood vessel. The spider veins will gradually disappear, leaving the skin in tact. The length and number of procedures vary, but usually last between 15 and 30 minutes each and are normally done in 1-3 appointments. Side effects are uncommon and usually minimal. Patients often experience a slight redness following treatment - but this goes away within a few days.

Varicose Vein Treatment
During the 45 minute procedure, the involved area of your leg is anesthetized and a thin laser fiber is placed into the affected vein. Laser energy is then delivered to damage and eventually eliminate the varicose veins. This relieves the varicose leg pain as well. Once the laser energy has been applied, the fiber is removed and a compression bandage is put on your leg. Walking immediately following the procedure is encouraged and normal activities can be immediately resumed. This is a very quick, minimally invasive therapy which causes little or no side effects.

A consultation is necessary to determine if varicose vein and spider vein treatment using the D940 laser system is right for you. During your consultation we will recommend a detailed plan, answer any of your questions, and discuss involved costs and possible insurance reimbursement and/or Medicare reimbursement.

If you experience discomfort, swelling and varicose veins in your legs, you may be suffering from superficial venous reflux disease. Approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Traditionally patients diagnosed with venous reflux would undergo vein stripping surgery. Now, patients can be treated with the Closure procedure -- a minimally invasive alternative to painful vein stripping surgery.

The VNUS Closure procedure, an alternative treatment option to traditional vein stripping surgery, brings state-of-the-art technology to an age-old disease.

The Closure procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound, your physician will position the Closure catheter into the diseased vein, through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter delivers radio frequency (RF) energy to the vein wall. As the RF energy is delivered and the catheter is withdrawn, the vein wall is heated, causing the collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.

Following the procedure, a simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression may be provided to aid healing. Your doctor may encourage you to walk, and to refrain from extended standing and strenuous activities for a period of time.

Patients who undergo the Closure procedure typically resume normal activities within a day.
