Heritage Valley VeinCare locations are operated by Board-certified physicians who are part of the Heritage Valley Heart and Vascular Center. An ultrasound test is performed and patients undergo a comprehensive examination by the doctor who then formulates an individualized treatment plan for their particular condition. Treatment for extensive disease usually requires more than one session.



  • Heritage Valley VeinCare focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of medically significant disorders of the venous circulation. It is estimated that at least 20 to 25 million Americans have symptomatic varicose veins. Vein disorders occur as a result of several factors including heredity, pregnancy, the aging process, trauma, excessive weight, and prolonged sitting or standing.

    Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a minimally invasive method for treating varicose veins using laser energy to shrink and collapse the abnormal varicose veins. Once a varicose vein is treated by endovenous laser ablation, the remaining blood flow is re-routed to normal veins within the leg.

    Sclerotherapy is a procedure where a small amount of solution is injected into veins. This irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to close. With time the body reabsorbs veins treated both by ablation and sclerotherapy.

    Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive method of removing varicose veins through a puncture incision in the skin. No sutures are required and results are immediate with little or no scarring.

    Ambulatory phlebectomy is the surgical method of removing varicose veins. It involves an outpatient procedure that removes superficial veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin.

    Surface laser/light source treatment uses a light beam which passes through the skin and is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels. This treatment method is utilized most commonly on spider or thread veins. Treatment of spider veins is not typically covered by insurance.
