Which treatment is right for you?

While they are often a symptom of a larger problem, varicose and spider veins are not life-threatening conditions. Not all patients require surgical or minimally invasive treatments. In fact, you may get adequate relief of your symptoms from wearing graduated support stockings.

If symptoms persist, there are several options to treat varicose and spider veins.

In rare cases, large varicose veins may be treated with a surgical procedure called vein stripping. But for most, a less invasive procedure will effectively eliminate varicose veins.

Unlike other vein centers, Legacy Vein Clinic of the greater South Bend area offers a free screening, which includes a review by a member of our staff to determine if a comprehensive evaluation is right for you. If you elect to have a comprehensive evaluation, we will provide a thorough ultrasound examination of your problem area or areas, a service that is generally covered by insurance. The comprehensive evaluation will enable us to make a recommendation for which course of treatment is best for you.

Vein Treatments

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation (also known as endovenous laser surgery or EVLT) is an FDA-approved alternative to surgical vein stripping at our Mishawaka vein center. EVLT requires a small needle stick into the affected vein, through which a laser fiber is inserted. As pulses of light are delivered inside the vein by the laser system, the vein collapses and is sealed shut.
