About Fairfield, Connecticut
Fairfield is a town in Fairfield County, Connecticut and borders the city of Bridgeport and towns of Trumbull, Easton, Weston, and Westport along the Gold Coast of Connecticut. The town had a population of approximately 59,000 residents. In September 2014, Money magazine ranked Fairfield the 44th best place to live in the United States and the best place to live in Connecticut. Fairfield was one of the two principal settlements of the Connecticut Colony in southwestern Connecticut (the other was Stratford). Over time, it gave rise to several new towns that broke off and incorporated separately. Redding, Weston, Easton, Bridgeport, and Westport are all towns created from parts of Fairfield from 1767 through 1835.
Exploring Treatment Options
Dr. Vinay Madan offers numerous treatment options to help you deal with symptomatic and asymptomatic varicose veins and unsightly spider veins at the Center for Varicose Veins. Below is an overview of some of our most popular treatment options.
Radiofrequency ablation is a popular treatment for varicose veins. During this procedure a thin catheter is inserted into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is confirmed to be in proper location, radiofrequency energy is deposited within the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and is resorbed naturally by the body. Over the following weeks, you will see the varicose veins diminish in size and notice improvement in your symptoms related to the varicose veins.
Venaseal is one of the newest treatment options for varicose veins. This procedure has many new benefits compared to older treatments including no requirement to wear compression stockings after the procedure. The procedure is performed under ultrasound guidance, where a small catheter is inserted in the abnormal vein. A glue is deposited along the vein. The glue seals the vein and the blood is re-routed into normal healthy veins. This procedure is also better tolerated because there is no heating during the procedure.
Endovenous Laser Ablation
Endovenous laser ablation is a treatment of varicose veins which uses light energy to generate heat. The heat generated from the laser results in damage to the inside lining of the vein. This causes the vein to close and get resorbed by the body over the following weeks and months. Patients start to notice improvement in their symptoms soon after the treatment. The blood flow returning to the heart is rerouted from the abnormal veins into the normal healthy veins.
Sclerotherapy is a very common treatment for varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting a solution into the diseased vein. The injection can be performed under visual guidance or in cases of slightly deeper veins, under ultrasound guidance. Depending on the size of the vein, Dr. Madan may use foam sclerotherapy for treatment of larger varicose veins. Sclerotherapy can be used to treat veins throughout the body, including hand, facial, chest, foot and leg veins.
