According to Stanford University, an estimated 40 million Americans suffer from vein disease because of ugly, swollen, painful varicose veins or unsightly spider veins. Now, there’s a new treatment that’s gaining more and more notice across the country: the FDA-approved VenaSeal Closure system “could be a game changer” according to this report on KMIR-TV in Southern California.
Watch this TV interview about VenaSeal:
VenaSeal has been featured in The Wall Street Journal. It’s been shown on Dr. Oz. Plus, Dr. David Calcagno and Dr. John Rossi of Calcagno & Rossi Vein Treatment Center are proud to be the first and only doctors in Central Pennsylvania to be certified in this new minimally invasive treatment for venous insufficiency.
The VenaSeal Closure System uses a remarkable, proprietary adhesive –– commonly used in other medical procedures — that stretches as you pull the catheter back within the damaged vein. The doctor operating the VenaSeal device then compresses the vein for three minutes, basically gluing the vein shut and eliminating the abnormal pathway by which the blood is falling backwards in your legs, pressurizing your veins and causing varicose veins. The vein and the glue are then absorbed by your body to treat your disease. A small band-aid is then placed on the patient’s leg and they walk out of the office.
The VenaSeal Closure System advantages include:
- Permanently treats the source vein that cause varicose veins
- Provides improved patient comfort
- Rapid return to normal activities
- No multiple needle sticks
- Minimal to no bruising
- Basically no post-procedure pain
- No post-procedure compression stockings
- No need for tumescent anesthesia on the leg
