Clinic Success Stories
Featured Service: Varicose Vein Treatment
Dr. Mann specializes in the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure to treat varicose veins. Over his twenty plus years practicing medicine, Dr. Mann has helped hundreds of patients cure and recover from the painful, torturous and unsightly varicose veins that affect more than 40 million Americans. Typical symptoms arising from this condition include pain, fatigue & heaviness, bulging ropey veins, swelling, itching or burning, and throbbing or cramping at night. Dr. Mann has successfully performed the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure on each of his varicose vein candidate patients, curing them of all these side effects. Every single one of Dr. Mann’s patients have recovered successfully, and he has never had any complications pre-or post-procedure.
The Radiofrequency Closure Procedure itself is the most technologically advanced endovenous vein treatment that physicians can use now at days to treat varicose veins. Its predecessor, vein stripping, is now completely antiqued, was very painful and left patients with unsightly scars. The Radiofrequency Closure Procedure is an outpatient procedure that is extremely safe, minimally invasive (scar less) and virtually pain-free. It utilizes high-tech ultrasound energy to guide a thin catheter into the vein through a very small opening. Then, radiofrequency energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As this thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and is sealed closed. Patients will see a visible difference the same day of the procedure, as they will no longer have large, bulging veins protruding from their legs. They also do not have to worry about their veins disappearing, because blood will re-route itself to other, healthy veins deeper in the leg, as it should.
Varicose veins are not simply an unsightly and cosmetic issue that can be left untreated. There are serious underlying medical problems in your legs and the resulting conditions can become life-threatening. It is important to stay vigilant with your health, and take care of your legs. This includes contacting a varicose vein specialist as quickly as possible if you have any of the previously mentioned symptoms. Your vascular surgeon will examine your condition and help you choose the best treatment for your varicose condition. Although varicose veins are quite common, if untreated, the condition can progress to something quite serious. Additionally, because varicose veins are a medical condition that can have very harmful effects, most health plans will cover the procedure.
The advanced simplicity and effectiveness of the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure has made it the most widely used and accepted treatment with the highest success rate used by vascular surgeons such as Dr. Mann. Together, this advanced procedure and Dr. Mann’s vein surgical expertise of 20 plus year provides every patient at our clinic the absolute best, patient-centered vein care.
