Treatment Phases

Complimentary Consultation

During your complimentary consultation, you can talk to Dr. Ziad Hadaya and the experienced team who can help you determine the proper treatment for your unique needs and situation. Our medical assistants will begin the preliminary steps to assessing your vein problems. Dr. Hadaya can also educate you on the signs and symptoms of diseased veins. He can also discuss your treatment options and ways to prevent your issues from getting worse.

Initial Evaluation

The initial evaluation takes about a half hour. It will include a physical assessment of your legs and your vein problems. Your varicose vein evaluation may require an ultrasound to determine the extent of the vein function and to determine the specific veins causing your symptoms.

Venous Ultrasound

During the ultrasound, the clinician will map out your leg veins and determine the location and extent of your specific vein problems. Any abnormal or diseased veins will be noted. This is a critical step in your assessment and will help Dr. Ziad Hadaya determine your optimal treatment plan. Your insurance company might also need this information to reimburse any recommended treatments. The ultrasound takes about 45 minutes per leg.

Treatment Plan

During this part of the evaluation, you will be able to talk to Dr. Ziad Hadaya about your preferred course of action for treatment. You will discuss the risks and benefits of each potential treatment or procedure along with the costs. You will also be able to schedule an initial treatment. This part of your visit takes about a half hour.

Treatment

Your physician might first recommend a varicose or spider vein treatment that is minimally invasive or noninvasive, such as compression stockings or diet and exercise changes. If your vein problems do not respond to these less invasive therapies, your vein doctor might then recommend other treatments.

New techniques such as Clarivein™, Venaseal™, Varithena™ foam, microphlebectomy treatments, and radiofrequency ablation can provide effective treatment for your varicose or spider veins with minimal discomfort, downtime, or hospital stay, with nearly instant symptom relief.
