Glue Vein Treatment, Pittsburgh

What Is VenaSeal?

To seal off damaged veins, VenaSeal employs a medicinal glue. This unique glue keeps the vein walls together, blocking the blood flow and then rerouting it to healthy veins. The dormant veins will eventually disappear because your body will absorb them.

Since varicose veins don’t always show up on the skin’s surface, ultrasound will be used to map the veins that need to be treated as well as to direct the surgery. The medical adhesive will be applied by your doctor using a catheter.
