“If you have spider veins that keep you from wearing shorts or crop pants, now is a great time to get your legs summer ready,” explains interventional radiologist Joel Neuman, MD, Medical Director of Nazareth Hospital Vein Center. “The treatments are pain-free, minimally invasive and can be performed on an outpatient basis in a few visits.”
At Nazareth Hospital’s Vein Center, skilled and experienced interventional radiologists use minimally invasive techniques such as laser ablation and sclerotherapy to restore blood flow and improve the appearance of ugly veins. For patients, these procedures can mean quick recovery time, no scarring and rapid relief of symptoms. The goal of treatment is to close down weakened veins so that blood flow is rerouted to healthy veins.
