Since vein disease is progressive, postponing treatment can have ill effects. If left untreated, your vein disease and your symptoms will worsen – making future treatment more extensive. That’s why it’s important to schedule a comprehensive consultation at Vein Clinics of America (VCA) in Merrillville with Demetrios Karamichos, MD.
As a leading force in advanced, non-surgical vein care for over 25 years, we’ve effectively treated patients throughout the country with Sclerotherapy and Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT).
Both Sclerotherapy and ELT can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Karamichos’ office in VCA’s Merrillville location. Each procedure takes about an hour with no hospitalization, no anesthesia, no scarring and virtually no down time. Unlike surgical stripping, these procedures get you back on your feet the same day.
Sclerotherapy treats varicose veins by injecting an FDA-approved medication that “seals them off” from the healthy vein network. Blood flow is naturally rerouted to healthy veins and the varicose veins are absorbed by the body. ELT accomplishes the same thing using advanced laser technology. Once the diseased vein is sealed off, your body naturally uses other healthy veins to restore normal circulation.
Dr. Karamichos will be happy to answer all of your questions regarding each procedure, as well as any concerns you may have. He welcomes patients from the greater Gary and Merrillville area. So don’t delay. Schedule your appointment today.
They always asked how I was feeling, if I had any discomfort which I really appreciated!
