Did you know…..all of our procedures to treat your varicose or insufficient veins are done using local anesthesia? That means you will not have any downtime. In fact, we encourage you to remain active for several days after any procedure. Using local anesthesia also means that most people who suffer from heart or lung problems, or who can otherwise not tolerate general anesthesia, can still safely undergo treatment of their vein disease. This is great news for all the busy people with New Year’s resolutions to take better care of their health in 2016!
