The leaves are falling and the winter wind is quickly approaching, and it’s time to pack up the shorts and flipflops until next season. But did you know this is the perfect time to Fall back in love with your legs?
More than 30 million people in the United States are affected by venous disease. While varicose veins are the most common sign of this condition, you may also experience other symptoms, such as pain, swelling and even blood clots. Luckily, venous disease can be easily diagnosed and treated with simple, non-surgical procedures.
Dr. Keith M. Sterling and the staff at the AAR vein center can help!
A board-certified physician specializing in Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Dr. Sterling was the first physician in the metropolitan area to perform non-surgical vein ablation for the treatment of varicose veins. Since 2001 he has performed thousands of procedures and is consistently recognized by his peers as a “Top Doctor” in Washingtonian and Northern Virginia magazines.
Our physicians offer a full complement of treatment services to resolve cosmetic and symptomatic problems related to spider veins, varicose veins and pelvic congestion syndrome. Our procedures, which are performed only by a board-certified physician, are non-surgical, reducing risk, pain and recovery times compared to traditional surgery.
Depending on your individual condition, your plan of care may consist of a single treatment or a combination of treatments, such as varicose vein ablation followed by microphlebectomy and/or sclerotherapy, designed to provide you with the most effective symptomatic and cosmetic improvement.
Advantages of a Non-Surgical Varicose Vein Treatment
- Treatment typically takes less than one hour and many patients return to normal activity in 24 hours.
- Over the counter pain relievers are typically effective in treating any post-procedure soreness or bruising.
- No scars or stitches. No surgical incision is required, just a small nick in the skin the size of a pencil tip.
