Find your care

Our specialists treat varicose veins using techniques that offer better results with smaller entry points. Call 310-481-7545 to learn more about Vein and Vascular Center.

We provide complete care for superficial venous disease. Old fashioned surgery with large incisions is no longer needed to treat chronic venous superficial vein disease. Our skilled team is trained in non-invasive vascular imaging, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, conventional sclerotherapy, phlebectomy, endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) and mechanicochemical ablation (MOCA). These minimally invasive techniques allow us to close or remove these veins using very small 2-3 millimeter stab-like entry points or small injections. Therefore the cosmetic results are outstanding. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.

Treatment options for superficial venous disease include:

  • Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) — a procedure that uses laser to close off a vein that is not functioning properly.
  • Endovenous Thermal Ablation (EVTA) — a procedure that uses heat to close off a vein that is not functioning properly.
  • Mechanochemical Ablation (MOCA) — a procedure that uses a rotating catheter and special drug called a sclerosant to close off a vein that is not functioning properly
  • Phlebectomy — a procedure that removes bulging external veins by making a series of tiny incisions in the skin and physically removing the affected vein using specially designed instruments that look much like crochet hooks.
  • Sclerotherapy — a procedure that treats spider veins by using a micro needle to inject them with a sclerosant.
