What is VenaSeal® Vein Treatment?

VenaSeal® is an effective treatment for chronic superficial venous insufficiency, the underlying cause of many varicose veins. VenaSeal® uses a state-of-the-art medical glue to seal those veins that have improper blood flow. It has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure.

The varicose vein treatment involves the insertion of a small catheter into the affected vein. A small amount of the VenaSeal® Medical Glue is then gradually released into the vein under ultrasound guidance. The glue causes the vein to close, and the blood to be instantly rerouted through healthier veins. Patients can return to their daily activities after the treatment.

When you visit Dr. Rosen, a board-certified vein specialist, feel free to ask more about VenaSeal®. In fact, over an hour of time is reserved for your initial consultation with Dr. Rosen, so you can ask as many questions as you like!

Varicose veins in the legs are typically caused by blood that is not moving properly back to the heart. Instead of moving upwards in a one-way direction, the blood pools in the veins under the force of gravity.

When you have a VenaSeal® procedure, you may expect:

Dr. Rosen advises keeping active every day to help maintain good circulation. It is not recommended to stand for long periods, so if you have a job that requires it, make sure you find some time to “take a load off.” Sit during your breaks.

Our goal is to empower you with knowledge to be able to make the best, informed decisions for your treatment.
