Dr. Malvehy specializes exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease, including varicose veins, and is consistently rated one of the best vein doctors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Varicose vein treatment is customized by Dr. Malvehy during the initial consultation and may include a combination of laser vein treatment (also called EndoVenous Laser Ablation or EVLA), ultrasound guided foam chemical ablation, and minimally invasive varicose vein removal.
Current varicose vein treatments are all performed in the office using only local anesthesia. Patients can drive themselves to and from their treatment visit and have little to no downtime afterwards. Depending on the size, location, and nature of your particular varicose veins, Dr. Malvehy may be able to perform most or all of your treatment in a single visit.
Dr. Malvehy strives to provide a a treatment experience that is as comprehensive and comfortable as possible. Your customized treatment program will be designed to address the root cause of your varicose veins and ensure they don’t return; most patients need only one treatment course for permanent results. The doctor and our staff will also make sure you have as little discomfort during and after the procedure as possible. 100% of the treatment is performed by Dr. Malvehy, a top-rated East Bay vein doctor, personally.
Varicose vein treatments usually last 30-60 minutes. Vein treatment for patients who have symptoms like pain, cramping, or wounds is covered by most major commercial insurance and Medicare.
“Amazing results! I never write reviews, but I am so grateful for Dr. Malvehy and his vein treatments, that I want to share my story in the hopes of helping anyone else who suffers with ugly and painful veins. I developed huge veins all over my left leg, from my foot all the way up to my groin, when I was pregnant 18 years ago. After two more pregnancies, the veins continued to get larger, and more rope-like, especially behind my knee. I went to doctors all over the state, who tried all different procedures, techniques, and even surgery, to help my vein problem. Nothing worked at all! I decided that I would just live with it. I would have to deal with the uncomfortable leg pressure and wear pants for the rest of my life….Until 8 months ago when I went to see Dr. Malvehy. I walked into his office just to show him one large bubble like vein that bothered me the most. When he saw my leg, he confidently felt that he could help the whole thing! His confidence, kindness and gentle manner, made me decide to give this vein thing one more try. After a few treatments, and a few months, I can honestly say that my veins are almost completely gone! The big rope like ones were the first to go, followed by the small cosmetic ones. I can wear shorts now, and I have no more pressure in my left leg. I really felt like I needed to say all of this, because no one should have to walk around like I did, with painful and ugly veins when treatments with Dr.Malvehy exist.”
