Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat varicose veins or spider veins.

  • local anesthesia is typically used
  • using ultrasound as a guide, the surgeon injects a sclerosant solution into the damaged veins
  • the veins will eventually dissolve and be absorbed into the body
