Milford Vascular Institute offers a variety of services to treat varicose veins, leg swelling, or other forms of vascular disease.
Radiofrequency Vein Treatment
In the past, the only treatment available was to surgically remove the incompetent superficial veins with a procedure called vein stripping. With the advent of new technology, this surgery is rarely needed. The veins can now be closed with a simple procedure in the office, eliminating the venous insufficiency and returning the venous pressure back to normal. This procedure can be done in multiple ways using different methods of closure of the veins. Follow the button below to learn more about radiofrequency vein treatments.
Laser Vein THerapy
Similar to radiofrequency vein treatments, laser vein treatments use minimally invasive methods to close off incompetent veins. The difference lies with the type of energy used to close the vein. Follow the link below to learn more about laser vein treatments.
Spider Vein Treatments
While the treatment of spider veins is often considered a cosmetic treatment, we at Milford Vascular know the truth about failure to treat smaller varicose and spider veins. We often relate the treatment of spider veins to weeding a garden. In a garden, we first spend time removing the large weeds. Often, once the larger weeds have been removed, we see smaller weeds that were not apparent in the beginning. We then take the time to remove even the smallest of weeds so that they do not grow larger in time. If we ignore the small weeds, they will grow into large weeds and we will have to stat all over again.

There are two culprits for why non-healing ulcers may form on your extremities. Ulcers are typically caused by a traumatic wound or prolonged and sustained pressure. The ulcer is then unable to heal properly because of underlying venous or arterial issues. Most wounds are venous stasis ulcers, or caused by underlying venous insufficiency. Arterial ulcers, or ischemic ulcers, are caused by limited blood supply to the extremities due to atherosclerotic buildup in the arteries.
