Services

Vein Clinic at Scripps Clinic

The Vein Clinic at Scripps Clinic Carmel Valley in San Diego offers a full spectrum of services under one roof, including an on-site vascular lab staffed by technicians specializing in vein therapy.

We offer multiple treatment options to address a variety of venous disorders, including varicose veins, spider veins and venous ulcers. While some patients find success with a single procedure, others benefit from a combination of procedures.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

  • FDA-approved procedure used to treat varicose veins
  • Laser technology causes the veins to collapse and seal shut
  • Local anesthesia is used to numb the area of the leg being worked on
  • High success rate (95-98%)
  • Minimal pain
  • No scarring
  • No downtime

Injection-Compression Sclerotherapy

  • A solution injected into the vein causes the vein walls to stick together and seal shut
  • Used to treat both varicose veins and spider veins
  • Following the injection, compression stockings must be worn to speed up the vein closure and fading process
  • No anesthesia required
  • Several treatments may be required

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

  • An advanced form of injection-compression sclerotherapy
  • Problem veins not visible on the skin’s surface are better detected with the aid of ultrasound, allowing for more precise injections
  • Used to treat both varicose veins and spider veins, and to evaluate venous ulcers
  • Following the injection, compression stockings must be worn to speed up the vein closure and fading process
  • No anesthesia required
  • Several treatments may be required

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

  • A minimally invasive surgical method used to remove varicose veins on the surface of the legs
  • Tiny incisions are made in the skin, through which the veins are removed
  • Local anesthesia is used to numb the area
  • No stitches are required – the incisions are small enough that they will heal on their own
