What is the Best Vascular Clinic in Eastern Pennsylvania?

Written By Tony Carabasi III, MD, FACS

When you are suffering with painful, unsightly varicose veins, your primary goal is to find a treatment that works. But how do you select the best vascular clinic in eastern Pennsylvania for your specific needs? We have a few tips to help you know whether the vein clinic you choose will be able to treat your disorder and provide you with the best results possible.

Qualified Vein Specialist

The first step is to look at the physician that is running the clinic. Is that professional qualified and experienced in vein procedures? Vein disorders require their own level of experience and expertise to ensure an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment options. Look for a physician that not only has board certification in general and vascular surgery, but also spends the majority of time working with patients with these types of disorders.

Another factor to consider when selecting a vascular specialist is whether other physicians trust this doctor with their vein disorders. For example, Dr. Carabasi at Center for Vein Restoration treats area physicians regularly at his practice, as well as the patients these doctors refer to him. Patients even travel from other states to see Dr. Carabasi, due to his excellent national reputation as a vein specialist.

Accredited Laboratory

In addition to the physician that will treat you, you want to know the facility you choose has all the technology and equipment necessary to diagnose and treat you successfully. An accredited laboratory that uses exclusively registered, vascular technicians (RVT’s) gives you confidence in knowing that not only will you have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic tests and treatment options, the facility also adheres to the highest standards in terms of patient safety and care.

Center for Vein Restoration is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL). They were one of the first physician-based laboratories to carry this accreditation, which means they have a longer history of offering the highest standard quality of vascular care and treatment in the Philadelphia tri-state region. We have patients referred to our vascular laboratory from across the state, due to our ability to monitor and diagnose a wide range of vascular disorders.

Multiple Treatment Options

The best vascular clinic in eastern Pennsylvania will also offer a variety of treatment options for their patients. Today’s vein treatments are less invasive and more effective than ever before, but they do tend to work best when they can be tailored to the unique needs of each patient. Some treatments are designed to work best for smaller, superficial veins, while other procedures successfully target large, protruding veins and the painful symptoms that often accompany them.

Center for Vein Restoration provides a wide range of treatment options for our patients, including:

  • VNUS Closure – also known as Venefit, uses radiofrequency energy to ablate larger veins
  • EVLT – endovenous laser treatment eliminates larger veins using laser technology
  • Clarivein – the newest generation treatment that is “heatless” thereby requiring no anesthesia, and so reduced needle sticks and increased comfort for patient
  • Venaseal – another new entry to the treatment arena, using a “heatless glue” for closing malfunctioning veins
  • Sclerotherapy – injectable treatment used to eradicate spider veins and smaller varicose veins
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy – minimally-invasive treatment removes large varicose veins from the leg in small sections

We also provide compression therapy for our patients, both as a stand-alone treatment to manage symptoms or in combination with one of our vein procedures to further improve results.

Choosing the best vascular center for your vein treatment is the first step in ensuring your procedure is both safe and successful. To learn more, contact Center for Vein Restoration today.
