Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the practice of injecting an irritant (we use polidocanol) into the diseased vein to promote disruption to the inner layer of the vein wall which leads to its collapse, resorption and elimination. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is done on varicose tributary veins that meet insurance medical necessity requirements for treatment.  This procedure is done in the office and patients are able to go home and resume normal activities with minimal restrictions.

Below is a remarkable before and after photo of a patient treated in our office with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.
