Recently there was a special on Dr Oz about a new treatment for varicose veins, called Foam Sclerotherapy.
Dr Nick Morrison, medical director of Morrison Vein Institute, was one of the first doctors in the United States to treat veins with Foam sclerotherapy. According to Dr Morrison, it has become a valuable alternative for the treatment of valvular insufficiency of the superficial veins of the lower extremities,including the great and small saphenous veins and their tributaries, recurrent varicose veins, perforating veins, and venous malformations. Foam sclerotheraphy is appropriate for primary treatment or complementary to ligation, phlebectomy, or thermal ablation.
Dr Morrison travels all over the world teaching other practitioners about veins and vein disease, and the treatments available. One of which is Foam Sclerotherapy, as seen in this picture.
