The specialists at Total Vein Concepts remove unwanted spider or varicose veins with quick sclerotherapy treatments. After an initial consultation determines the issue and identifies the veins for removal, an endovascular specialist injects a specially formulated serum directly into the condemned vein, whisking the web away to a cluttered attic. After the vein collapses, pressure is applied to keep the area sealed from blood flow before the body subsequently breaks it down and removes it over the course of several weeks. The minimally invasive 20-minute treatment can be applied anywhere on the lower extremities and—unlike reading a romance novel written by one’s parents—causes minimal discomfort.
Today’s Groupon can be applied to the patient’s portion of their copay if the consulting physician determines that the need for sclerotherapy is medical.
Total Vein Concepts
Board-certified in interventional radiology and vascular interpretation, (RPVI), Christopher Dobzyniak, MD and Phillip Luebbert, MD specialize in image-guided procedures to help diagnose and treat venous disease. At Total Vein Concepts, an endovascular specialist consults with each new client and uses a diagnostic ultrasound to determine whether veins present a cosmetic or medical concern. After the consultation, a comprehensive treatment plan is created using minimally invasive techniques to achieve the patient’s goals. The clinic specializes in traditional and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, as well as phlebectomies, during which they remove a small cluster of varicose veins through tiny incisions. Most procedures incur little downtime, though some require the use of local anesthesia.
