What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are dilated, thickened, elongated and twisted blood vessels that do not control blood flow as they should. In some cases, they can be small spider veins and even appear thread-like. In other cases, they may appear as large grape-like clusters under the skin.
30 million American's suffer from venous disease per year.
In extreme cases untreated venous insufficiency can lead to skin changes, and eventually to debilitating non-healing leg ulcers.

Reticular Veins & Varicose Veins
Varicose Veins & Swelling
Our minimally invasive treatment options allow for no downtime and no vein stripping. Schedule a consultation today to determine the right treatment option for you.
Venous closure procedure using glue. A thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the vein; using ultrasound guidance, surgical grade glue is then injected through the tube causing the vein to close and blood is diverted into healthy veins.
Venous closure procedure using heat. A thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the vein; heat through the tube is then applied causing the vein to close and blood is diverted into healthy veins.
Veins are injected with a solution that causes the vein to close. It is useful for treating small and medium sized varicose veins.
Veins are removed through tiny punctures in the skin using local anesthesia.
Varithena is an injection of medicated foam for the treatment of veins.
Perforator Vein Treatment
The ClosureRFS Style is intended for use in vessel and tissue coagulation including treatment of incompetent perforator and tributary veins. The stylet’s function is to deliver bipolar radiofrequency energy to the desired treatment site and to relay temperature and other feedback to the radiofrequency generator.
Notes From Our Team On Venous Insufficiency
Azher Iqbal, MD
“At Buffalo Vascular Care, we are dedicated to patient centered treatment that includes consultation, diagnosis, treatment and follow up for individuals suffering from venous insufficiency.
Venous insufficiency is a disorder in which the veins have become dilated and the valves inside the veins have become weakened leading to varicose veins, leg cramping, aching, swelling, fatigue, pain and, in severe cases, darkened pigmentation of the skin and ulcers.
We are committed to providing all patients with high quality care that comes from our extensive training and experience in image guided vascular procedures. Using the comprehensive state-of-the-art resources of the Buffalo Vascular Care, we are able to diagnose your vein problem and plan treatment to meet your needs.”

WE OFFER THE LATEST IN
A catheter is inserted directly into the diseased vein and injects the VenaSeal® adhesive to seal the vein.
A catheter is introduced into the vein and delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut.
A solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins causing the blood to clot and the vein to scar.
Small incisions are made in the area of the vein, and then a special hook tool is used to remove the vein.
Patients Are Saying
“The venous closure procedure has relieved night cramps that went right up to the groin area, I am so relieved. I have been encouraging my younger family members who have similar symptoms to take the plunge and do this!”
“I would say that if you think you have issues with your veins, there is no better practice to be checked out by.”
