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.

Treatments Available

  • Radiofrequency ablation

    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.

  • Venaseal

    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.

  • Varithena

    Varithena is an injection of medicated foam for the treatment of veins.

  • Sclerotherapy

    Veins are injected with a solution that causes the vein to close. It is useful for treating small and medium sized varicose veins.

  • Microphlebectomy

    Veins are removed through tiny punctures in the skin using local anesthesia.

  • 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.

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!

Medical Director at BVC

A note from Dr. Iqbal

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.

Venous insufficiency may not only cause unsightly varicose veins and skin discoloration, it can also have an extremely negative impact on your quality of life resulting in pain and limited level of activity.

At Buffalo Vascular Care, we believe that patients deserve individualized care, where the provider has intimate diagnostic knowledge of the patients’ problems and takes time to discuss the appropriate treatment plan with each patient.

We strive to offer the best quality of care in a non-hospital, patient-centric setting where our team focuses on each individual patient’s needs and concerns.
