Board-certified Dr. Meghal R. Antani helms the Center for Interventional Medicine, specializing in outpatient and minimally invasive procedures to dissolve varicose and spider veins. To determine how many treatments will obliterate venous webs, patients meet for a one-on-one consultation with a doctor to examine for venous reflux disease, varicose veins, and to express any concerns or ask questions, such as whether Spider-Man also sports spider veins. During the 15- to 20-minute procedure, a skilled staffer injects an FDA-approved medicine into the problematic veins to cut off their blood supply. Several microinjections deliver the medication, targeting a greater area than a single large injection and helping to increase the patient’s comfort. As the veins begin to dissolve, healthy veins take up their mantles and the affected veins gradually shrink, break down, and surrender themselves to absorption by the rest of the body. Patients can stroll out of the office immediately after the procedure and resume normal pogoing activity.

"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.
