Vein specialists serving Central New York in Ithaca and Horseheads
With over 70 years of combined experience, we specialize in the treatment of veins by improving comfort and confidence for those suffering from swollen, bulging, unsightly, and painful veins.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
The goal in the treatment of vein disease is to reduce or stop the backward flow of blood. The blood is then rerouted through nearby healthy veins. Previously, treatment consisted of a formal vein stripping that involved large incisions, removal of the diseased vein, scarring, and significant downtime. The latest techniques use small incisions, local anesthetic, minimal scarring, and little downtime.
The Venaseal closure system uses a formulated medical adhesive to permanently seal the diseased vein. Typically, only one injection of local anesthetic is needed. You are able to return to normal activities immediately and no compression stockings are required afterward. Your physician can let you know if this treatment is covered by your insurance.
Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy
This form of sclerotherapy is done under visualization with an ultrasound system. It gives the practitioner access to veins which are difficult to locate and keeps the procedure non-surgical.
Laser treatment can be used to treat the smaller veins that occur on the face and legs. Through the use of laser treatments, we are able to facilitate the removal of facial veins, spider veins, age spots, and dark spots conveniently. The light energy is specifically absorbed by the vein which is being treated, “erasing” it. Treatment may be combined with sclerotherapy for best results. Patients can resume normal activity immediately after.
“Great office and very caring people who go WAY over and beyond for you. Lisa is a great technician and Dr. Monaghan is very friendly–always a smile.”
