It’s estimated that 80 million adults suffer from symptomatic, superficial venous insufficiency. Many of these patients, as well as their physicians, may not realize how easily this problem may be treated. Advances made in the treatment of venous insufficiency have made it possible to treat this disease in the office in about an hour.
Vein stripping, the old standard surgery for varicose veins, has been replaced by endovenous (inside the vein) ablation procedures as the treatment of choice for superficial venous insufficiency. Many patients once thought to have untreatable venous problems may now be excellent candidates for endovenous closure.
Dr. Gropper offers all the current vein ablation procedures, including the latest mechanical/chemical techniques. He is also very skilled in microphlebectomy (removal of varicose veins through tiny incisions) as well as treatment of all types of smaller varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy injections.
