What is the Venaseal Procedure?

VenaSeal is a new technology used to close saphenous veins.  Unlike traditional methods, such as endovenous laser or radiofrequency ablation treatments, the VenaSeal does not use any heat to seal the vein. Instead it fills the inside of the vein with a medical adhesive (glue) known as cyanoacrylate.  This adhesive expands painlessly inside the vein and seals the vein shut.  The adhesive remains in the vein permanently.

Cyanoacrylate adhesives have been used in medicine for decades. It is soft, inert, stable, and extremely safe.  In the battlefield it has been used to seal serious wounds for over 40 years. In medicine it has been used effectively and safely for over 15 years sealing a variety of blood vessels.  Now, with VenaSeal, we can seal saphenous veins with this adhesive. Research to date has demonstrated the same effectiveness as radiofrequency ablations and no serious adverse reactions. It is now FDA approved in the United States and covered by many insurance carriers.

VenaSeal has several important advantages over endovenous laser and radiofrequency procedures.  Because there is no heat used, there is no need for painful anesthetic injections and the procedure is almost completely painless.  For patients who are needle phobic this is a major advantage. Another advantage is that there is no need for compression stockings after the treatment.  Furthermore, the risk of complications from heat are completely avoided, such as skin burns or nerve injury. The recovery is essentially immediate and painless, and there are no restrictions afterwards.

I really need the super honest part as his patient because I have been on dialysis for almost 20yrs time around and then dealing with end-stage renal failure since I was 13 and I was born with circle kidney so I need someone who is going to be upfront and honest with me and compassion at the same time and he is the ONLY surgeon to get three fistulas working on me! No one in 42 years has ever done that! He is the best surgeon I have ever had! Omg... and his staff is phenomenal !"

I must say I have never been more pleased with the care and treatment rendered by you and your staff, as compared to countless other physicians and their somewhat lacking care and consideration for their patients’ time and well-being.
