What Northwest Vascular and Vein Specialists Offers
This vein clinic offers the most up-to-date methods for vein treatment. Treatments include:
- Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) for varicose veins. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, an estimated 20 percent of adults will develop varicose veins in their lifetimes. Varicose veins are bulging veins that are close to the surface of the skin. They can often be unsightly and painful. EVLT is a procedure that causes varicose veins to become smaller by using a laser to seal the vein’s walls together. This procedure is both quick and effective, taking less than one hour to complete.
- Laser treatments for spider veins. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but smaller. They usually don’t hurt, but having spider veins makes many people self-conscious about showing their legs in public. Northwest Vascular and Vein Specialists treat spider veins with cosmetic laser treatments using a handheld device. This procedure also takes less than one hour, and patients can get back to their regular routines very quickly.
- Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy for deeper varicose veins. Most varicose veins are close to the surface of the skin. However, some are not. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a solution for these varicose veins. Ultrasound helps to pinpoint the location of the vein so that a small needle can be inserted into the skin. Then a sclerosing agent can be injected, shrinking the vein. The procedure is quick and minimally invasive. Best of all, results can be seen and felt almost immediately.
Meet the Physicians
The physicians at Northwest Vascular and Vein Specialists are board-certified vascular surgeons. They are also both women–which isn’t too common in vascular surgery, where only around 2 percent of practicing vascular surgeons are women. Dr. Susanne Woloson has been in private practice for vascular surgery since 2000. Dr. Elizabeth Clark has been practicing vascular surgery for more than 20 years. The doctors formed Northwest Vascular and Vein Specialists in 2014 at the Arlington Heights location, opening the Libertyville location two years later.
Their clinic focuses on both the latest technology and on providing the best patient care. Reviews of this vein clinic mention the friendliness and professionalism of its doctors and staff. They respect people’s busy schedules and make it a priority to see patients at the time of their appointments. Their offices are small, and the staff and doctors take the time to get to know their patients.
