Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a Fee for the Online Vein Screening?

No. We are happy to review your pictures and will have a doctor call you to discuss them at no cost to you.

How does it work to treat superficial venous reflux?

Since valves can’t be repaired, the only alternative is to re-route blood flow through healthy veins. Traditionally, this has been done by surgically removing (stripping) the troublesome vein from your leg. The Closure procedure provides a less invasive alternative to vein stripping by simply closing the problem vein instead. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and empty blood from your legs.

Will the procedure require any anesthesia?

The Closure procedure is performed under local anesthesia.

How long does the Closure procedure take?

The Closure procedure typically takes about 15-20 minutes, though patients normally spend 45-60 minutes at the medical facility due to normal pre- and post-treatment procedures.

Is the Closure procedure painful?

Patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the Closure procedure. Dr. Markovitz will give you a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

  • Wonderful staff! Everyone there was so nice and very good at what they did. I waited several months before writing a review to see if everything stayed fixed. My legs feel great! Thanks to everyone at Virginia Vein Care.”

  • I had a great experience. Everybody made sure that my time in the clinic was as pleasant as possible. All technicians, the office Manager and Dr. Markowitz were extremely helpful, listened to all my concerns and provided me with answers for every question. Nobody ever was in rush with me. If anything, they took extra time to look after me and my veins.”
