Dr. Hubach starts by assessing your arterial and venous system and offers in-house ultrasounds and other testing, if needed. He provides a range of effective treatments for varicose veins.
He might suggest that you lose weight, manage stress, wear a compression stocking, start a new exercise routine, follow a nutrient-dense diet, or use physical therapy and other treatment modalities to enhance your general health.
Most in-office treatments involve sealing a segment of the vein closing your unwanted vein. To treat varicose veins, Dr. Hubach uses a variety of methods tailored to your individual situation.
Endovenous ablation is a convenient in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. It involves the use of ultrasound to position a tiny catheter into your varicose vein. Dr. Hubach safely and carefully delivers laser energy through the catheter to heat and seal your vein. You return to normal activities the same day as your procedure.
With sclerotherapy (chemical ablation of larger veins), Dr. Hubach uses a special foam to close abnormal veins on the surface of your skin. Sclerotherapy typically involves small injections of an FDA approved solution into your veins.
Minimally invasive treatments like sclerotherapy are performed in the office in 30- 60 minute sessions.

With phlebectomy, Dr. Hubach uses a needle to make small incisions close to the vein. He uses a phlebectomy hook to remove the veins. Phlebectomy is a simple minimally invasive procedure performed with a local anesthetic.
