Recent advances in venous ultrasonography and surgical technology enables physicians at the Iowa Vein Center to treat most varicose veins through very small incisions that rarely require stitching and provide cosmetically acceptable results. After performing a Duplex Venous Ultrasound exam an accurate venous map is made of the entire leg. This precise mapping allows individually tailored treatment for every patient. All treatments are done in an outpatient setting using conscious sedation and local anesthesia. There is immediate recovery with the patient resuming most activities usually the next day.
