About Center for Vein Restoration in Niles, Illinois
Center for Vein Restoration’s Niles location is one of five clinics we operate in Illinois. We opened in this Chicago suburb a year ago, and we are proud to serve the community with state-of-the-art vein care.
A certified vein care physician supervises each Center for Vein Restoration clinic. Our doctors are on the cutting edge of vascular medicine. They have shared their knowledge in many respected medical publications, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of Vascular Surgery, and Phlebology.
These minimally invasive treatments are done in our in-office locations that the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission has approved for vascular labs. One of the common procedures we provide is sclerotherapy. This proven treatment for varicose veins and spider veins uses a safe solution to seal the damaged vein, so it eventually fades.
Varicose veins can also be treated with thermal heat with either laser ablation or radiofrequency ablation. The vein collapses after heat is applied to the vein via a thin catheter, and blood diverts to healthier veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy removes the varicose vein through a tiny incision. Center for Vein Restoration physicians also perform newer innovations in vein treatment such as VenaSeal and ClariVein. VenaSeal uses a medical adhesive to close the varicose vein. ClariVein combines both a sealant and a rotating tip to destroy the clogged vein. Whichever procedure you choose, your recovery time will be brief.
Our staff will ensure your safety and comfort from the day of your first consultation and throughout your recovery. Center for Vein Restoration prides itself on excellent customer service and a compassionate bedside manner.
