    Varicose Veins

    The term “Varicose Veins” is loosely applied to the whole spectrum of diseases that we see in our clinics. Varicose veins appear to look like rope and are typically blue or red. They often occur deep under your skin and at times you will be unable to see them. If you show signs of varicose veins then your family typically has a history with them. People most likely to be affected by varicose veins are pregnant women and those with occupations that require long periods of standing, such as nurses and teachers.

    In addition to their unpleasant appearance, side effects of varicose veins include: pain, fatigue, itching, burning, swelling, cramping, restlessness, and throbbing. These symptoms can worsen over time. Call North Texas Vein Specialists today (469) 270-1970

    How Do We Treat Varicose Veins?


    The VNUS Closure™ is a clinically proven, minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux, with little or no pain. VNUS Closure™ patients walk away from this procedure and return to everyday activities typically within a day.


    Some problems, such as large varicose veins, may call for ligation which is a procedure where the connections between the damaged veins and the normal vein systems are interrupted. Ligation is usually done under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, often in combination with other procedures. Your initial consultation will give you and your physician an opportunity to discuss which varicose vein treatments program may be best for you.


    Miniphlebectomy is a procedure that can be used on small and large veins. In this procedure, tiny pinpoint holes are made with a small needle. Using specialized instruments, segments of the vein can be removed through these openings. The tiny openings heal with nearly invisible scars that are quite cosmetically acceptable. You won’t even have to wear stockings for an extended period of time with this procedure, which is done under local anesthetic with minimal down time.


    Since 2001, we have used lasers for ablating large veins. This procedure (LASE) uses laser energy to obliterate the interior portion of the vein. This usually can be completed in the clinic under local anesthesia and minimal discomfort and downtime. Most patients can drive themselves home. Support stockings are usually not needed. North Texas Vein Specialists have preformed more than 2,500 LASE procedures.
