Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment
Drs. Robert and Margaret Weiss have specialized in the treatment of unwanted veins since 1984. They have published scores of professional articles and lectured extensively and internationally. In 2001, their textbook, Vein Diagnosis & Treatment: A Comprehensive Approach was published by McGraw-Hill. You may call the office for a copy or view online their patient education video, which gives a more detailed explanation of the techniques discussed here.
Unwanted veins may be treated using six methods: sclerotherapy, minimally-invasive surgery (Ambulatory Phlebectomy), radiofrequency vein shrinkage(Closure), endovenous laser therapy (CoolTouch CTEV), laser (Lumenis One, Starlux 1064, CoolTouch Varia, and pulsed dye among others), and intense pulsed light (IPL).
