Dr. Wilsher’s Specialties
Dr. Wilsher began her career as a family medicine practitioner and is now dedicated exclusively to treating venous and lymphatic disorders, including varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, venous leg ulcers, and other disorders of venous, lymphatic, and mixed origin. She specializes in:
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition in which the tiny valves in the legs weaken or become damaged, allowing blood to collect in lower vessels. The result can be swelling, unsightly or painful varicose veins, itching, and skin changes.
This condition is marked by swelling caused by excess fluid collecting in the arms or legs. CVR vein doctors evaluate for superficial venous insufficiency, which is the most common cause of lymphedema.
In both procedures, a thin catheter is gently inserted into the vein through the skin through which heat is emitted, closing the affected vein. The closed vein is reabsorbed into the body, and the blood finds a new path through healthier veins.
During this minor office-based procedure, a bulging, twisted, superficial vein is removed from the leg. The tiny incisions are covered with a band-aid, and the patient can return to regular activity immediately.
A needle is placed into the damaged vein via ultrasonography guidance. Then, medicine called a sclerosant is injected into the vein, resulting in the closure of the damaged vein. Blood naturally reroutes to healthier veins.
Varithena is the trade name for polidocanol injectable foam, the sclerosing agent used to treat varicose veins. The agent collapses the damaged vein, forcing the blood to reroute to healthier veins.
