For patients with bulging leg veins Dr. OByrne may recommend a Clarivein treatment. Clarivein is safe, effective and less painful (both during and after the procedure) when compared to other modalities of vein treatment, such as laser or radio-frequency ablation for venous disease.
This FDA approved procedure is catheter based and similar to the Endovenous Laser Treatment that Dr. OByrne has been performing for 20 years. However, instead of using energy generated from the laser, Clarivein uses a mechanical method to destroy a poorly functioning vein, which is virtually painless. The Clarivein procedure also eliminates the need for pre-procedure medication so patients can drive themselves to and from the appointment.
Dr. Obyrne will determine if this procedure is right for you via a precise duplex-guided ultrasound examination.
