MERIDIAN VEIN AND PAIN PROVIDES A BROAD SPECTRUM OF VENOUS CARE FOR VEIN DISEASE

At Meridian Vein and Pain, we specialize in providing comprehensive venous care for vein disease through minimally invasive and highly effective treatments. 

Utilizing advanced techniques and devices, we have revolutionized the way venous diseases are treated, transforming procedures that once required open surgery and extensive recovery time, into outpatient treatments with minimal downtime. With most procedures under two hours, you’ll be back on your feet quickly.

VEIN TREATMENTS

Veins, the low-pressure blood vessels responsible for returning low-oxygen blood to the heart, rely on delicate valves for proper blood flow. The most prevalent venous diseases typically involve blood clots and venous reflux.

VARICOSE VEINS

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that appear close to the skin’s surface. Although they can occur anywhere on the body, they are most commonly found in the legs. These bulging veins, often green, blue, or purple, can become more prominent after extended periods of sitting or standing.

Approximately one-third of Australian adults suffer from a vein disease know as varicose veins, which can impact self-confidence and cause physical discomforts such as itching, throbbing, aching, or a sensation of heaviness.

Spider veins can be treated in-clinic without general anesthesia or sedation.

SPIDER VEINS

 

Spider veins are another form of vein disease, presenting as small, thin veins that appear as a network of red, blue, or purple lines near the skin’s surface. They are most commonly found on the legs, ankles, and occasionally on the face. These delicate vein clusters resemble a spider’s web or branches of a tree and can become more visible with age or due to hormonal changes.

Many Australian adults experience spider veins, which can affect their self-esteem and cause mild physical discomforts like itching or burning sensations.

Blood Clots – Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Blood clots in the legs can be serious, potentially causing severe leg swelling, disability, and even life-threatening complications. Approximately half of those with DVT experience symptoms, from leg swelling, pain or tenderness, increased warmth, red or discolored skin, to discomfort while standing or walking.

If this vein disease is detected early, minimally invasive procedures can dissolve blood clots and restore the venous system to its normal state.

ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

FAST RECOVERY VEIN DISEASE TREATMENT OPTIONS

At Meridian Vein and Pain, we offer a range of advanced treatment options for varicose veins, including:

Sclerotherapy

This time-tested medical procedure for treating vein disease has been effectively used for spider and varicose veins since the 1930s. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a specialized solution directly into the affected vein, sometimes treating multiple veins during a single session. Most patients experience minimal pain, with some reporting a brief stinging sensation.

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS)

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a highly effective procedure for the treatment of vein disease, that utilizes ultrasound technology to guide the injection of a vein-dissolving solution. Over time, the body absorbs the treated veins, causing them to disappear.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

As a minimally invasive laser treatment for vein disease, EVLA boasts a high success rate and short recovery time for varicose vein patients. When combined with sclerotherapy, many individuals achieve outstanding results with minimal discomfort.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive, heat-based treatment for vein disease that is used for targeting larger varicose veins in the legs. With high success rates and quick recovery times similar to EVLA, RFA is performed as an in-office procedure without general anesthesia or sedation. Most patients experience little post-treatment pain and can walk out of the office immediately after the procedure.

RISKS INVOLVED

 

Although risks are involved, these procedures for treating vein disease are generally considered safe. In less than 0.5% of cases, patients may experience major complications such as infection or nerve injury.

However, for patients who are good candidates for the procedure, immediate vein condition reduction and visibility is often achieved.

To further improve the condition and reduce symptoms in the weeks and months following the procedure, we may recommend compression garments be worn, and your doctor may prescribe medications.
