ClariVein patients experience up to 74% less pain than other minimally-invasive peripheral vascular treatments. For this reason, Dr. Girija Surya and her team recommend the ClariVein treatment when it fits in with the patient's course of treatment. The procedures advanced technology allows us to eliminate the problem vein without causing you pain, scarring or down time. Unlike older varicose vein procedures, ClariVein is a form of endovenous therapy termed MOCA - for mechanical obstruction and chemical ablation. This procedure uses a combination of mechanical "irritation" and sclerosing solution to seal the problem vein off permanently.
ClariVein - Safe, FDA Approved and Reduced Pain
We have seen amazing success rates with this safe and FDA approved procedure. ClariVein technology was developed in 2005 by Dr. Michael Tal, a Yale University Interventional Radiologist. What sets ClariVein apart from other venous procedures, like Endovenous RF or Endovenous Laser, is that it does not utilize heat to treat the vein. The removal of heat from the procedure is a huge benefit, as there is no longer a need for tumescent anesthesia and the risk associated with heat therapies is no longer an issue. This shortens the time the procedure takes, reduces pain and also eliminates bruising.
