Venous Wounds – New Technology for Vein Treatment

Dr. Schwaab treats many patients in the Wound Care Clinic for painful leg ulcers. Many of these ulcers are a symptom of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) a condition in which the leg veins are damaged and regular blood circulation is impaired. CVI can lead to serious medical conditions including leg achiness, swelling, skin discoloration and worst of all, painful leg ulcers.

The treatment for CVI traditionally involved removing the damaged vein. For many years this was mainly accomplished through painful vein stripping, a procedure often done under general anesthesia. When the damaged vein is removed, patients are less likely to get recurrent ulcers. Advances in technology have changed vein treatment into a simple outpatient procedure. Using endovenous laser treatment and local anesthesia, Dr. Schwaab is able to seal the damaged vein rather than completely remove it. This procedure reduces the patient’s chances of recurrent leg ulcers. Patients leave the clinic encouraged to resume normal activity immediately.
