Varicose Veins ยป Management Protocol

Management Protocol


Varicose vein management is a wonderful treatment that is safe and effective for all ages, 18-100.  Each patient has their own individualized management, which will be discussed throughout the entirety of the treatment.


Normal Protocol


  • Consultation to discuss issues, problems, concerns, and treatment
  • Ultrasound of the Arterial System of the legs with recording of ABIs
  • Ultrasound of the Venous System to map the deep and superficial veins, reflux and incompetencies
  • Follow-up appointment to discuss ultrasounds and treatment plan
  • Initial laser procedure
  • Follow-up ultrasound and office visit (an ultrasound and visit has to be done before the next procedure is performed by most insurance companies)
  • Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, if needed
  • Sclerotherapy, if needed
  • One-month follow-up (after all procedures are completed)
  • Three-month ultrasound and office visit
  • Yearly ultrasound and office visit (monitoring is very important to the success of treatment)
