Minimally Invasive Vein Therapies to Treat Varicose Veins

At CORA we use the latest minimally invasive techniques to treat vein disorders including varicose veins, spider veins, and DVTs. Our organization is staffed with fellowship trained physicians, experts in minimally invasive vascular procedures, to provide you with the best possible care. CORA offers endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), sclerotherapy, and ambulatory microphlebectomy to help relieve pain and reduce bulging veins. Every procedure is tailored to your specific clinical problem for best results.

Who gets varicose veins?

Over 20% of Americans between the ages of 40 and 80 experience varicose veins. Our vein program is used to treat venous insufficiency, a condition that can result in a number of clinical and cosmetic problems such as varicose veins, leg pain, fatigue, and swelling.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency:

Chronic venous insufficiency is a long-lasting and debilitating disease characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Aching pain
  • Fatigue
  • Heaviness
  • Cramping
  • Itching or Burning
  • Swelling
  • Tension
  • Restless Legs
  • Skin changes

How are these conditions treated?

Evaluation of vein disorders often includes a physical exam and duplex ultrasound or other imaging procedure. Your interventional radiologist can diagnose and treat the full spectrum of venous conditions to help relieve your pain and improve your quality of life.

Endovenous Ablation

We use the latest technology to treat varicose veins with endovenous ablation. The treatment has rapidly replaced the traditional saphenous vein stripping due to minimal invasiveness and high success rates of 84-93%.

Surgery vs. Endovenous Ablation

Endovenous ablation has produced the same clinical benefits as conventional surgery with a less invasive procedure. Less invasive means a quicker recovery with fewer risks.

Post Procedure | What to Expect

• Wear compression stockings for 24-48 hours
• Continue wearing compression stockings during the day for one week
• Follow up with an ultrasound after one week to evaluate for DVT
• Experience full benefit (other than skin discoloration) in 6 weeks

Here at CORA, we use the latest technology to treat varicose veins. Minimally invasive therapies have rapidly replaced traditional saphenous vein stripping with high success rates of 84-93%.
