We know that varicose veins can be unsightly and embarassing for some people, especially during important social events.

Luckily, you do not have to continue feeling uncomfortable about your varicose vein condition. Surgical Specialists of Hazleton(sm) has several options for dealing with varicose veins, depending on the type and extent of your condition.

When vein valves do not open and close properly, blood can collect in the veins. These enlarged veins are called varicose veins. In many cases, a combination of surgery, compression stockings and elevating the legs, works best in treating the faulty veins.

When performing surgery, the doctors generally use local, spinal, or general anesthesia, and the patient usually returns home in the same day. Surgical methods include transilluminated powered phlebectomy (TIPPS), which involves the doctor removing the vein using a small surgical device while viewing the vein using an illuminating light. This new procedure takes around 30 to 35 minutes and causes little or no scarring.

Other surgical techniques include subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery (SEPS) which the doctors use to treat the underlying condition that causes venous ulcers. Treatment of spider veins and deep venous thrombosis are also performed by the doctors.
