Vein Disease Is Not A New Disease

Chronic Venous Insufficiency or Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) is not a new disease, but it was not recognized as a specialty until just recently. The way we treat veins have come a long way in the past 20 years. The “stripping” and “ligation” procedures prevalent in the past and known to leave unattractive scars are now being replaced with laser technology in the form of Endovenous Thermal Ablation (EVTA). It has minimal to no residual scarring and is done in the office under local anesthesia.  The heavy, unattractive hosiery is now replaced with lighter compression hose that are available in a variety of colors and styles.
