"Varicose veins are large veins on the legs that occur because of an underlying condition known as venous reflux disease," explained Dr. Meghal Antani, a board-certified vascular specialist, during a segment on GTV's The Capital Forum. According to Dr. Antani, this condition afflicts 20%?30% of women and 10%?15% of men. Dr. Antani, along with a team of experienced medical specialists at Center for Interventional Medicine, has treated vein conditions?including venous reflux disease?more than 10,000 times. To deliver effective results with little discomfort and downtime, they offer three minimally invasive advanced techniques using state-of-the-art equipment: endovenous ablation, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy. Whereas endovenous ablation closes a damaged vein by applying light energy, sclerotherapy seals small spider veins with an FDA-approved medicine. During a phlebectomy, the physician extracts the vein through a tiny hole with a grasping tool or a pair of chopsticks. The conveniently located facility is just off major highway exits, and free parking is available out front.
