Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation removes problematic tissue with high-frequency waves that generate heat. It is a minimally invasive treatment with a quick recovery time, replacing more invasive procedures of the past. Dr. Brito at Mercyhealth Vein Clinic uses the ClosureFast™ Procedure which takes less time to heal and leaves minimal bruising.

Phlebectomy

With a phlebectomy procedure, the physician removes the varicose vein instead of collapsing or closing it via several small incisions. This process can remove rather large veins with minimal scarring.     For more information, visit the American College of Phlebology.

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is specifically for deep varicose veins, ones that aren’t necessarily visible or easily accessed. The ultrasound guides the doctor so they can inject a solution that collapses the vein. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.   For more information, visit the American College of Phlebology.

Cosmetic sclerotherapy

Cosmetic sclerotherapy involves injecting an unsightly varicose vein with a special solution that collapses the vein, which eventually fades away. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.   For more information, visit the American College of Phlebology.
