OC VeinCare uses the most advanced techniques available to treat venous disorders.
Dr. Altuwaijri offers sclerotherapy for spider veins and varicose veins. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is also offered including the use of foam sclerotherapy depending of patient’s venous anatomy and indications.
Dr. Altuwaijri uses the Venefit™ procedure to treat the source of varicose veins and symptoms such as tired legs, throbbing, ankle swelling, skin discoloration and ulcers. The benefit procedure is a minimally invasive treatment aimed at closing leaky veincs responsible for the development of varicose veins and symptoms. It is offered when medically necessary and is covered by most insurance carriers. A pre-authorization request is submitted prior to any medical procedures. The average time for the procedure is 15-20 minutes with immediate return to everyday activities including work. Local numbing medicine is applied with a single small 3mm incision. No sutures are required. The Venefit procedure is a permanent solution to leaky veins.
Spider veins are treated with an FDA approved medication. Feeder veins to the spider vein clusters are treated as well. Sclerotherapy remains the gold standard for the permanent treatment of spider veins. The solution used has an anesthetic quality and does not cause stinging. All procedures are performed by Dr. Altuwaijri.
