Varicose Vein Removal

Veins are an essential part of the circulatory system. They transfer blood back to the heart to be reoxygenated and carried throughout the body. Their elastic-like walls and valves keep blood moving in the proper direction. When the valves in the veins malfunction and excess pressure forces the blood to flow backward, veins can develop a bulging, twisted, rope-like appearance that prominently identifies them as varicose veins. Varicose veins can occur from aging, pregnancy, trauma or injury, obesity, heredity, or even excessive standing or sitting. If left untreated, varicose veins may cause health complications such as blood clots, skin ulcers, diminished leg function, and severe bleeding.


Candidates for varicose vein removal must be properly diagnosed with varicose veins. This requires a physical examination and an ultrasound along with a thorough assessment of the patient’s medical history. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment options will be discussed. If health-related concerns are causing the varicose veins, it is important to treat these conditions to prevent them from causing varicose veins in the future.

The Procedure

Newer treatments for varicose veins use non-intrusive technology to achieve the same cosmetic and health benefits as previous surgical procedures. Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy, also called the Venefit™ procedure, treats Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) and varicose veins by applying radiofrequency energy to heat the collagen inside the vein walls. The procedure causes the collagen to contract and the vein to collapse, sealing it shut so that the blood can redirect into healthier veins.

Recovery and Benefits

With the Venefit™ procedure, patients experience far less pain and bruising than traditional laser ablation treatments for vein removal. The Venefit™ procedure requires no general anesthesia and no incisions, which leads to a faster recovery and little to no scarring. Treating varicose veins with Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy improves the appearance and texture of the skin. The elimination of large varicose veins can also reduce many health risks.

Varicose veins are bulging, rope-like veins with a twisted, prominent appearance. Spider veins are thin, spiky veins that may be blue, red, or purple in color. Though both types of veins have similar causes, only varicose veins pose health risks.

The varicose vein will collapse, and the blood will redirect into healthier veins. The body will then naturally absorb and eliminate the damaged blood vessel.

Although insurance does not cover treatment for all varicose veins, those that pose a risk to the patient’s health and quality of life may be deemed medically necessary, and treatment may be covered by insurance. Each insurance company has specific criteria to determine whether varicose vein treatment is medically necessary. Therefore, a proper diagnosis and conclusion that treatment is medically necessary are required for the insurance company to cover the cost of treatment.

We provide financing options for patients who wish to undergo vein treatment that is not covered by insurance. A financial specialist will be available to discuss alternative payment plans for your treatment.

Spider veins, reticular veins, and small veins can be treated for cosmetic reasons. Treatment for these types of veins is not usually deemed medically necessary and, therefore, is not usually covered by insurance.
