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.
