Most treatment plans begin with a careful and thorough diagnosis made through use of ultrasound examination.
After diagnosis, individualized treatment plans are developed, depending on the needs of that particular patient. Such treatment plans may utilize some of the most proven and minimally invasive treatments including vein ablation treatment, laser sclerotherapy, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, handsclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, fluoroscopic assisted sotradecol embolization (FAST/E), and foam sclerotherapy. In addition to these vein removal treatments, SCVC also conveniently provides central venous access, gynecological, dialysis access, PVD/PAD, Botox & filler, Urological, spine/pain management, oncology, and Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) treatments.
