Introducing the Vein Clinic in Woodland Park
The vein clinic in Woodland Park, NJ, is widely considered one of the best vein clinics in New Jersey. We’re led by highly talented, board-certified, and Yale-trained vein doctors in Woodland Park. Instead of simply treating the visible spider veins and varicose veins, we diagnose and treat chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems.
Spider veins, varicose veins, and most other vein problems occur because of chronic venous insufficiency, a medical condition wherein the collapse of vein valves leads to the accumulation of blood in leg veins. As blood accumulates in leg veins, it applies pressure on the vein walls to cause vascular dilation, leading to spider veins and varicose veins.
Treating spider veins without addressing the root cause is like painting over a stained wall instead of fixing the leaky pipes underneath — the stains (spider veins) will inevitably return. Unfortunately, most vein clinics and vein doctors take that superficial approach, leading to a high rate of recurrence.
However, our state-of-the-art vein clinic provides comprehensive, personalized, and minimally invasive vein treatments. We perform thorough vascular imaging tests to diagnose chronic venous insufficiency and perform minimally invasive vein treatments, ensuring optimal and long-lasting relief from vein disease and spider veins.
Our considered and careful approach to vein treatments has helped us maintain a perfect track record, as evidenced by our 5-star ratings and reviews. You can find our vein clinic at 1167 McBride Ave Suite 2, Woodland Park, NJ. Please schedule an appointment online or call us at +1 973-381-2115.
#1. You can expect free insurance verification
You can expect free insurance verification at our vein clinic, even before your appointment. You can request free insurance verification when you schedule an appointment — we accept all major insurance plans, including Medicare. Our insurance concierge will handle your details and contact your providers on your behalf to maximize your coverage.
By the time you appear for your appointment, the insurance concierge will have worked out the terms and conditions of your insurance coverage. This allows us to provide a comprehensive overview of your vein treatment costs, with insurance coverage, before your treatment. As such, we provide free insurance verification and ensure complete transparency.
#2. You can expect comprehensive consultation
Your vein treatment journey at our vein treatment clinic in Woodland Park starts with a comprehensive consultation. The vein doctor will examine your leg veins, review your medical history, and discuss your symptoms. You should inform your vein doctor of the following symptoms of vein disease — leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, restless leg syndrome, leg swelling, leg pain, and exhaustion, with the symptoms worsening at the end of the day.
#3. You can expect vascular imaging tests
Your vein doctor will perform thorough vascular imaging tests to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. During the duplex ultrasound scan, the vein doctor will use ultrasound handheld devices to visualize the direction of blood flow, which will confirm the presence or absence of chronic venous insufficiency.
#4. You can expect a personalized treatment plan
After diagnosing chronic venous insufficiency, the vein doctor will curate a personalized vein treatment plan. The vein treatment plan will depend on your medical history, symptoms, the location and size of spider veins and varicose veins, underlying chronic venous insufficiency, allergy risks, insurance coverage options, and other factors.
The vein doctor will consider all of the factors to curate the ideal vein treatment plan for you. They will also highlight the pros and cons of all treatments and walk you through the entire vein treatment process. You’ll also receive a treatment cost overview with no hidden charges. As such, you’ll have complete mental clarity before the procedure.
#5. You can expect minimally invasive vein treatments for chronic venous insufficiency
If you have chronic venous insufficiency, your vein treatment will start with radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and venaseal. During these procedures, the vein doctor may use multiple techniques to destroy or seal the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier leg veins.
The following is an overview of minimally invasive vein treatments:
- Radiofrequency ablation involves channeling thermal energy into the diseased vein via a catheter inserted through a small incision on the skin’s surface.
- Endovenous laser ablation involves channeling laser energy into the diseased vein via a laser fiber inserted through a small incision on the skin’s surface.
- VenaSeal involves injecting a medical adhesive into the diseased vein to seal its walls shut, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier veins.
#6. You can expect minimally invasive vein treatments for spider veins and varicose veins
If you don’t have chronic venous insufficiency, either from the start or after the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor will recommend cosmetic procedures to remove the spider veins and superficial varicose veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy are the best minimally invasive treatments for superficial varicose veins and spider veins.
The following is an overview of your cosmetic vein treatment options:
- Ambulatory phlebectomy involves the physical extraction of superficial varicose veins through small incisions on the skin’s surface.
- Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sclerosant solution into spider veins to fuse their walls, turning them into hardened scar tissues absorbed by the body.
#7. You can expect an immediate return to normal activities and work
Minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments are in-office and outpatient procedures that conclude within an hour with no downtime. You may have to wear compression stockings for a few weeks after the procedure, but you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. Your vein doctor will provide a comprehensive set of instructions for your recovery.
