Procedures that treat vein disorders, such as varicose and spider veins, have come a long way since the days when varicose vein treatment most likely meant surgical removal – or “stripping” — of the diseased vein from the leg by a general surgeon.
Talk about a not so pleasant experience, not to mention, not that effective either. Many times a year our vein specialists re-treat people who have experienced a botched or ineffective vein stripping. Thank goodness for them, today’s minimally invasive vein treatments are gentle and nip the problem right in the bud at the source. And because our vein specialists are vascular and interventional radiologists, we are expertly trained and skilled in the most advanced, leading edge technologies used to treat any vein disorder. Diagnosing and treating vein disease is all we do, so you can trust your legs and health to us.

We want to help you feel better. Get your legs back. And keep them going strong once you’ve undergone treatment. That’s why when you’re a Hamilton Vein Center patient, you come back after your treatment for a follow-up appointment, and then we ask our patients to check back in on an annual basis so we can check the health of their veins.
