Our Treatments

Southwest Vein & Leg Center customizes your care path based on your individual vein condition and needs. From the ultrasound screening* to the final physician consultation, our staff will ensure your concerns are addressed and you receive the best possible treatment.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Since laser ablation is a minimally invasive procedure with virtually no recovery, just about anyone bothered by varicose veins can have this procedure. Patients considering this treatment should first have tried conservative treatments for varicose veins

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is performed in-office and under ultrasound guidance. It is a minimally invasive procedure where the physician positions a catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin.

Sclerotherapy Treatment

Sclerotherapy is used for spider veins and very small varicose veins on the legs. Most varicose veins are too large for sclerotherapy. For varicose veins, laser or radiofrequency ablation are the necessary treatments.


No one likes to feel any pain if they can avoid it. That’s exactly what anesthesia does — it stops the patient from feeling pain during a medical procedure. Modern local anesthesia and sedation make virtually any medical procedure short of open surgery doable.

Our Primary Methods

The primary methods used to treat venous reflux disease are called endovenous laser ablation and radiofrequency venous ablation. The procedure entails the usage of a small laser fiber or radiofrequency catheter to close an unhealthy vein in order to reroute the blood flow to healthy veins. Each treatment method is a safe in-office procedure that takes about 45 minutes. Patients may return to normal activity wearing support stockings following the procedure.

Endovenous Laser Ablation and Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure in which the doctor inserts a laser fiber or RF catheter into the affected saphenous vein assisted by our vascular technologist using ultrasound guidance. Local anesthetic is dispersed around the vein using a pump, ensuring the patient’s comfort during the laser procedure. The laser or RF energy heats the lining within the vein, causing it to collapse, shrink, and eventually disappear. Patients also have the option of receiving IV sedation during their procedure given by a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).
