Fox 10 Interview of Dr Morrison

Fox 10 was at our office interviewing Dr Morrison and a patient of ours about CoolTouch Laser to treat veins. Thanks to TV and social media, patients can learn about new therapies to treat their veins.

In the last 2 years, the FDA has approved a New Foam  called Varisolve ( Varithena) for treating venous insufficiency, in other words a way to treat or close the leaking, saphenous veins that used to be stripped out! This isn’t used for the surface, cosmetic, skin veins that we can see. This replaces  therapies like laser or radio frequency ablation or MOCA, Clarivein type procedures.

The other approved last November is VenaSeal, Closure by Medtronic.                                  ( This procedure is the only non thermal, non- tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary adhesive delivered by a doctor using their kit to deliver in the saphenous vein, to close the veins with faulty valves. Patients who fear anesthetic, heat, pain etc will prefer this method and if this is the only treatment needed, the patient won’t need compression stockings that day and may return to work or play.


More than leg veins can be trouble


Klippel-Trenaunay A rare and genetic syndrome that is often the most severe
 manifestations of varicose vein disease. The syndrome is a vascular disorder
 that consists of abnormalities in the venous system, lymphatic system, and
 arterial systems. This disorder often manifests itself in the form of 
 varicose veins, arterio-venous malformations (AVMs), lymphedema, port-wine stains
 and eventually limb hypertrophy (enlargement of the involved extremity). 
 Treatments may be an option for patients after a specific workup.
Face veins and hand veins can be more than cosmetic; you want a vein care 
specialist called a phlebologist with lots of experience to care for you.
Call us for a vein screening and then a workup for a specially 
designed treatment plan. 480-775-8460. #Morrisonvein


New Study on Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Varicose veinsWe came across a great article in News Medical that describes medical vein disease, leg ulcers and the use of graduated compression stockings. Leg ulcers and Chronic Venous Insufficiency treatment will be studied by scientists at Sheffield Hallam University. The article states “The medical condition means veins in the legs cannot pump enough blood back to the heart. It can cause pain, social isolation, inability to move, reduced quality of life, and treatment of venous ulcers is costly to the National Health Service. Sheffield Hallam experts are examining the use of exercise in treating the condition.” Leg ulcers can be prevented by treating Chronic Venous Insufficiency, aka vein disease, and wearing graduated compression stockings. Seek help from a Phlebologist, who is a medical professional that specializes in veins.

Compression Stockings After Varicose Vein Treatment

measure for compression stockingsA recently published article, titled “Role of compression stockings after endovenous laser therapy for primary varicosis” in the Journal of Vascular Surgery concludes wearing compression stockings for several weeks after medical vein procedures reduces pain and inflammation. Morrison Vein Institute has followed this protocol for 19 years. Our providers measure for and prescribe medical grade, graduated compression stockings for all varicose and spider vein treatments.
