Take a Step toward Healthy, Beautiful Legs

ein Clinics of America (VCA) has announced plans to open a second Raleigh area location this fall in Chapel Hill. Ashley Baquero, M.D.


will be the practicing physician. VCA has more than 35 locations nationally. Recent advances in medical technology have made the treatment of vein disorders safer and more effective. The physicians at VCA specialize in diagnos- ing and treating varicose veins, spider veins and other vein disorders, and use minimally invasive procedures in the treatment of vein disease. Endovenous Laser Treatment, or ELT, is a minimally


invasive laser treatment for varicose veins that requires no hospitalization. It takes about one hour, and pa- tients experience little or no pain. In this procedure, a small optic fiber is inserted through a catheter, guided by ultrasound, into the vein. The laser heats and closes the vein so that the blood is re-routed to healthy veins.


Sclerotherapy is a micro-injection procedure that lasts about 20 minutes and treats varicose and spider veins. For larger varicose veins, ultrasound may be used to guide the procedure. A solution called a scle- rosant is injected into the veins. This seals the problem vein off from the vein network, and allows the body to redirect blood flow to healthy veins. In addition to minimally invasive treatments, VCA offers diagnostics and follow-up programs tailored to the individual’s needs. And with insurance coverage for many vein therapies, care has never been more accessible. The Current Raleigh VCA location is located at 3909 Sunset Ridge Road.

They’d share a recipe for the modern mom. It’s one cup breadwinner, half cup bread baker. Add in a little drill sergeant, philosopher, with just a pinch of paramedic. And varicose veins didn’t fit into the mix. Because these legs deserved something sweet.


Varicose veins are more than unsightly; they’re a progressive disease that only


gets worse if left untreated. Vein Clinics of America has specialized in the treatment of vein disease for over 25 years. So call VCA today and do something nice for your legs.
