Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins affect a large proportion of adult women and men. If a patient has varicose veins or spider veins, Vein Clinic specialists will carry out a clinical evaluation of the symptoms, as well as an assessment of foot impairments and walking limitations, which can cause varicose veins. Diagnostic testing, such as an ultrasound, may also be required, to help identify the cause of the varicose veins and determine the best surgical or non-surgical treatment options.

Treatment of Varicose Veins

The Vein Clinic also offers tailored treatment plans to meet each patient’s individual needs. Caregivers work together to minimize the visibility of vein problems as well as to address the serious health risks associated with varicose veins.

Venous insufficiency and varicose veins are caused by leakage of the valves inside the veins, which normally allow the blood to flow from the foot up to the heart. This can be treated by closing the leaking portion of the vein.

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi offers a full spectrum of surgical techniques to treat varicose veins, such as:

  • Traditional surgical vein removal: An operation to surgically remove varicose veins.
  • Endovenous thermal ablation therapy: A minimally invasive procedure where laser or thermo catheters are used to close the problem veins.
  • Endovenous non-thermal therapy: A minimally invasive procedure that closes the vein by injecting a substance similar to superglue.

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Vein Clinic was the first in the region to offer endovenous non-thermal therapy.
