Vein Clinics of America (VCA), established in 1981, is one of the country’s largest groups of physicians dedicated solely to researching and treating varicose veins. Patients with spider veins and varicose vein patients have come to trust John Schruefer, MD and his dedicated staff at VCA in Rockville to assess their condition and perform non-surgical vein removal procedures that produce safe, effective results.
Non-surgical procedures include: Sclerotherapy and Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT). Both ELT and Sclerotherapy are minimally invasive treatments with no hospitalization, no anesthesia and minimal down time. Unlike surgical stripping, both procedures can be performed in the comfort of our Rockville clinic. Most patients are back to their normal routine the same day.
ELT, commonly referred to as “laser vein removal,” or “laser vein therapy,” is an advanced treatment using a thin fiber optic that is inserted into the affected vein. The laser energy emitted seals the vein from within. Blood flow is then re-directed to other healthy veins. Sclerotherapy can be used to eliminate the remaining veins, if needed. It involves injection of an FDA-approved medication that seals the abnormal veins from the rest of the vein network. As with ELT, blood flow is then redirected to healthy veins.
After treatment, you’ll not only notice an aesthetic improvement, you’ll notice the pain and discomfort in your legs has diminished. Experience the VCA difference for yourself. Call today and schedule your appointment with Dr. Schruefer. VCA welcomes patients from Potomac, Silver Spring and the surrounding area.
Everyone was professional and very helpful.

The technician who performed my treatment for spider veins (I think her name was Myla) was excellent! She was very skilled at inserting the needles and it wasn't very painful at all. She gave me several tips on how to minimize my bruising and how to put on/take off the compression stocking during my healing process. She was extremely professional. In the past I had treatments for spider veins and Myla was by far the best technician I have ever had!
