VenaSeal: A Treatment That Sticks With You
Medical technology continues to improve with each passing day and new procedures are becoming available that are safe, efficient and minimally invasive. VenaSeal is a recent innovation in the treatment of varicose veins and uses medical glue (cyanoacrylate) to physically shut down and seal the Greater Saphenous vein.
During this safe in office procedure, Dr. Milligan will insert a very small amount of VenaSeal Medical Glue into the vein through a small catheter. Once the affected vein is closed, blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg. There are several other treatments that will accomplish a similar task but unlike those options, VenaSeal does not require a Regional Nerve Block or large volumes of Anaesthesia. Additionally, there are no pre-procedures drugs involved and patients can return to their normal activities right after the treatment.
VenaSeal treatments are permanent solutions to close diseased veins and resolve vein disease symptoms such as painful, tired, burning, itching or heavy legs. Contact us at Milligan Vein for an evaluation of your legs and to see if you are a candidate for VenaSeal or one of other minimally invasive treatments available to treat varicose veins in either our Crossville or Knoxville office.
