Vein Treatment Center

Treatment of varicose veins and spider veins at Orange Regional Medical Group.

Vein Treatment, Therapies, and Surgery

Through our vein treatment program, led by Cleveland W. Lewis, Jr., M.D., we are offering patients surgical & cosmetic treatment of varicose vein ablation and sclerotherapy for spider veins.

What causes varicose veins?

Age: Very often, our patients experience enlarged, varicose veins due to them stretching and losing elastically. This process is commonly associated with aging. When this happens, deoxygenated blood (which causes your veins to appear blue), back-up and pool in your veins rather than progressing to your heart to flow backward.

Pregnancy: Some women will also develop varicose veins during their pregnancy. This is commonly caused by the increased blood volume and pelvic blood flow concentration experienced by pregnant women. This is a circulatory shift to better support baby's growth, but may also produce or worsen varicose veins as a side effect. Many women notice this in late pregnancy as the uterus exerts greater pressure on their legs. Typically, varicose veins that developed during pregnancy will improve without medical treatment postpartum.

Treatment of Varicose Veins

When varicose veins do not respond to self-care (i.e. compression stockings, elevating legs, exercise, etc.) your doctor may refer you to our Vein Treatment Center to determine your surgical options of treatment. At Orange Regional Medical Center, our experts offer minimally-invasive treatments that do not require extensive recovery.

If you are experiencing pain from varicose veins, or are concerned about how your veins look and feel, and self-care has not prevented them from getting worse, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about scheduling an appointment with our vein treatment program, or call us directly at 845-333-7575 for a consultation with our vein treatment specialist, Dr. Lewis.

Varicose Vein Ablation

Varicose vein treatment, often includes the removal, puncturing or tying off of smaller varicose veins through small incisions. At the Orange Regional Medical Center Vein Treatment Center, we offer varicose vein ablation, an image-guided minimally invasive procedure which uses radiofrequency or laser energy to cauterize and close varicose veins in the legs.

This method offers a safe, less invasive option for patients seeking treatment of their varicose veins, in comparison to traditional surgical methods. It may be used for cosmetic purposes, but it is most commonly used to help alleviate related symptoms such as aching, swelling, skin irritation, discoloration or inflammation.

Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins

In this procedure, your doctor injects spider veins with a solution that scars and closes those veins. In a few weeks, treated veins should fade.
