The doctors of The Vascular Center at Mercy perform the latest procedures for varicose vein removal. Venefit™ (formerly known as VNUS Closures™) offers a minimally invasive solution for varicose vein removal and results in minimal or no scaring and shorter operating time as opposed to the traditional procedure of vein stripping.
Veingogh© is a procedure for varicose veins that uses tiny, high frequency currents to deliver a microburst to heat up the vein, coagulate the blood and collapse the vein wall. Our vascular surgeons are experts in these advanced treatment options for varicose veins. Other minimally invasive treatment options include:

- Sclerotherapy - an injection procedure for small- and medium-sized varicose veins. The injection scars and closes the veins and they begin to fade after a few weeks of the treatment.
- Laser treatments - may be effective on smaller varicose veins and the even smaller spider veins, and do not require incisions or needles.
- Catheter procedures - performed on larger veins requiring the insertion of the catheter into a vein which is heated and collapsed.
- Phlebectomy - helps remove smaller varicose veins with a series of skin punctures.
