About Center for Vein Restoration in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
Center for Vein Restoration’s (CVR) office in Mechanicsburg provides residents of the Cumberland Valley the best in vein care. Our physicians are board-certified vascular surgeons with more than 35 years of experience. For the 14 years we’ve been practicing in Mechanicsburg, our physicians and staff have focused solely on vein treatment.
We offer various treatment options for varicose and spider veins, including sclerotherapy, laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and several newer innovations. All have been proven effective over many years of use.
Vein Treatment Options available at CVR
Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for varicose and spider veins. During sclerotherapy, a safe solution called a sclerosant is injected into the vein to irritate and close the walls of the diseased vein. Blood then diverts to healthier veins, and the bulging vein eventually fades. During laser ablation, heat emitted through a thin laser fiber is used to close the swollen vein. Radiofrequency ablation works similarly, using heat from radio waves to collapse the vein.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is the recommended treatment option for larger varicose veins and involves removing the diseased vein through two tiny incisions. This minor procedure should not be confused with the more significant vein stripping procedure of the past. Recovery is immediate, although temporary bruising or swelling may occur for a short while after the procedure.
Newer innovations like VenaSeal closes the varicose vein with a proprietary medical adhesive without the use of heat or anesthesia. During the non-surgical Varithena procedure, the vein doctor will inject a small amount of microfoam into the affected vein, collapsing the vein. Similarly, the ClariVein closure method involves a mechanochemical ablation device inserted into the vein.
Our physicians will discuss each procedure with you to help you decide on the right one for your situation. All these procedures are done in our Mechanicsburg office, which is situated eight miles westof the state capital of Harrisburg. Surrounded by beautiful views, we are conveniently located off of Rt. 81.
