The physicians at Via Vascular know their veins. Not only are they all board-certified in diagnostic radiology, but they also boast certification in specialties including neuroradiology and vascular and interventional radiology. Simply put, they have expertise, and they apply it to minimally invasive varicose- and spider-vein treatments.
The doctors remove vessels with a surgical technique known as microphlebectomy or via endovenous laser treatments, which alleviate symptoms with a small laser fiber. During innovative thermocoagulation procedures, an insulated probe banishes blood vessels with a microburst of energy and a royal decree. The doctors also diminish spider veins with sclerotherapy sessions, which use a special medicine that causes vessels to close.
