Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is a safe and highly effective procedure that eliminates diseased veins that have traditionally required surgical removal.
Sclerotherapy was thought to be effective with spider veins and small varicose veins that remain after surgery. Neither surgery nor sclerotherapy can prevent new varicose veins from developing as a result of the natural progression of this chronic condition. However, UGS offers a less traumatic, less costly alternative to gain and maintain control. Your specialist has undergone specialized training required in order to treat the saphenous axis by sclerotherapy.
Unfortunately, varicose vein disease is not curable. Like many other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or hypertension, it requires ongoing care and surveillance after the initial course of treatment gains control. Treatment in the earlier stages helps avert unpleasant complications (leg ulcers, dermatitis, phlebitis, blood clots), and relieve bothersome symptoms.
Work with your specialist to determine what the best course of treatment is right for you.
