TreatmentS of Varicose Veins
If you are looking for a physician with long term experience in diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency, look no further than Dr. Jozef Tryzno, MD, DABVLM, a physician who has been treating varicose veins since 1998.
In our clinic we are able to offer all FDA approved methods of varicose vein treatments. Some methods are less popular with patients due to very high cost of medical components or unfavorable insurance coverage. The most reliable, popular and cost effective are EVLAs and Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.
Each patient will have different needs and depending on severity of their condition, health status, insurance restrictions and financial constraints. We may suggest a combination of different conservative and corrective treatment options.
EndoVenous Laser Ablation - EVLA/EVLT - During this minimally invasive in-office treatment, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the varicose vein via a needle or introducer through the skin. Pulses of laser light are delivered to the damaged vein, which causes the vein to seal shut and be cut off from blood circulation. Closure of varicose veins with laser of radiofrequency does require general anesthesia. During procedure local anesthetic is injected into saphenous compartment, along the length of the vein. This “liquid padding” around the vein protects nearby nerves and tissue, from heat created by ablation and numbs the entire treated area.
In order to keep cost low for patients without insurance coverage, we are very pleased to offer FIXED PER LEG not per vein pricing for EVLA.
Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy - A technique that utilizes Ultrasound imaging to visually guide a needle into the varicose vein that is later injected with liquid or foam sclerosant. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy permits treatment of tortuous varicosities and varicose veins below the surface of the skin or in hard-to-reach areas.
Stab Phlebectomy - A method of surgically removing bulging, ropey varicose veins. Depending upon diameter of the bulging varicosity, an incision is made next to the vein with a needle or scalpel, and a small hook is inserted into the opening. The varicose vein is then grasped and removed. Incisions and punctures often do not require stitches and leave only small scars, procedure is done in-office setting, under local anesthesia, does require general anesthesia. Once a very popular option among patients due to immediate results, this procedure is being slowly eliminated by foam sclerotherapy.
Compression Sclerotherapy - The most common cosmetic treatment for reticular and spider veins. Injections to tiny surface veins are done with very thin needles that feel like mosquito bites. The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. Short-term post-procedure bruising is quite common. Pigmentations, if they occur, fade away but might last for several months.
Following each procedure, a gradient compression stocking is placed on the treated leg and the patient is asked to walk around our office for 10-20 minutes.
In order to keep cost low for patients without insurance coverage, , we are very pleased to offer FIXED PER LEG not per vein pricing for EVLA.

Disclosure: Every patient is a unique, and cosmetic results can vary between patients. No two laser treatments will get same results – even if performed by the same physician on patients with similar conditions. We encourage each potential patient to seek medical advice before committing themselves to any of the above treatments.
