VenaSeal Varicose Vein Treatment

VenaSeal™ is a new, painless treatment for varicose veins. Find relief from varicose veins with this non-surgical procedure and resume activities the same day

What is the VenaSeal Closure System?

The VenaSeal system is an innovative treatment option for patients with varicose veins, improving symptoms like heaviness, achiness, swelling, cramping, and itching. Unlike thermal energy laser treatments that use heat to close the vein, VenaSeal improves blood flow in diseased veins by sealing up—or closing—the veins with an adhesive.

Advantages of VenaSeal

  • Treatment is non-thermal (no local anesthetic required).
  • Treats veins with adhesive instead of heat.
  • Does not require compression stockings after the procedure.
  • Minimally invasive and virtually painless for most patients.
  • Most patients experience little-to-no bruising.
  • Resume normal activities the same day as treatment.

How does VenaSeal treatment work?

Your doctor will start by numbing the injection site. Then, using ultrasound guidance, your doctor will insert a catheter into specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive. After the adhesive is applied, the catheter is removed and a bandage is placed over the injection site. Your veins are immediately sealed by the adhesive, causing blood to reroute to nearby healthy veins and improving blood flow throughout the leg.

Possible Side Effects of VenaSeal

As a minimally invasive and catheter-based procedure, treatment with VenaSeal may cause minor and infrequent side effects in some patients, including:

  • phlebitis (inflammation of a vein)
  • hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin)
  • injection site bruising or pain
  • blood clots in the leg veins

You should not be treated with VenaSeal if you have thrombophlebitis migrans, acute superficial thrombophlebitis, previous hypersensitivity reactions to the VensSeal adhesive cyanoacrylates, or acute sepsis.

Will my insurance cover the treatment?

Our insurance specialists will send a letter to your insurance company outlining the doctor’s plan for your treatment. Because we have an experienced staff dedicated to this process, we are able to obtain this information for you and notify you when the process is complete.
We are contracted with all the major insurance carriers (Medicare, BCBS, United Healthcare, Humana, Cigna, Humana). However, if you are insured with an HMO type of insurance, it is your responsibility to bring a signed referral or authorization form from your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to each appointment.
