What Is the Cost of Vein Treatment New York?

Varicose Vein Treatment

In almost all cases of vein disease, a vein doctor will recommend a treatment that is non-surgical and minimally-invasive, as they are safer and easier for both the patient and doctor at the vein center. The main saphenous veins that cause varicose veins can be targeted using VenaSeal, radiofrequency ablation, or varithena to help blood start flowing in the right direction towards the heart again.

VenaSeal is a new FDA-approved vein adhesive used to close the saphenous vein in the leg that causes varicose veins. The VenaSeal glue closes off the diseased vein almost immediately, and this seal will block the blood flow through that vein and eventually reroute it through the healthy veins in your legs.

Radiofrequency ablation starts with a local anesthetic and the insertion of a small catheter into the unhealthy vein using ultrasound imaging. The catheter uses thermal energy to close down the walls of the damaged vein, redirecting the blood flow through healthy veins.

Varithena is a sclerotherapy foam injected into the damaged vein to reduce the appearance and symptoms of varicose veins. We’ll talk a little bit more about sclerotherapy in the next section, but similarly to the first two treatments mentioned, it seals off the damaged veins then reroutes blood flow.

All of these treatment options take less than a half-hour and cause minimal discomfort. You can go home or back to work after the procedure at the vein treatment clinic because there is no anesthesia or recovery time involved.

Cost

The cost of Radiofrequency Ablation, VenaSeal, and Varithena depend heavily on the number of veins treated and their seriousness. For some cases, the cost for these treatments can be in the thousands, but more often than not, it can be covered by medical insurance.

If a patient comes into the vein clinic reporting varicose veins and/or leg pain, a vein doctor will check the saphenous veins for valve problems, which are the cause for blood flow in the wrong direction or venous reflux. If the patient is indeed suffering from venous insufficiency, the vein doctor will be sure to ask if they are experiencing any symptoms they didn’t report originally, so they can ensure that insurance will cover treatment.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the most recommended non-surgical minimally invasive treatment for cosmetic treatment of spider veins, as it is widely considered by many vein specialists to be the best spider vein treatment available.

“Sclero” means hardening, which probably sounds like the opposite of what you want to happen to your veins. However, the medicine used in Sclerotherapy, known as a sclerosant, is injected by a vein doctor into the damaged veins and irritates the vein wall linings. This causes them to stick together and close off the vein, which eventually reroutes blood into healthier veins to promote better blood flow. Over time, any part of the vein that was injected with medicine will shrink down, reducing the appearance of spider veins, and the closed vein will get reabsorbed into the body.

As mentioned before, sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical procedure that uses very small needles to inject the medicine in the precise location of the affected veins. Since the needles are so small, there is no pain or anesthesia involved in this 30-minute procedure, so you can return to normal activities within a day of your appointment at the vein clinic. There is no recovery time because it works quickly, with results showing in less than a month, and oftentimes just one round of sclerotherapy can reduce veins by 50-80%.

Cost

The national average of a single Sclerotherapy session is usually around $700, and as mentioned before, patients can see up to an 80% reduction in spider veins. However, the actual number of Sclerotherapy sessions required is determined by a vein doctor based on the size and density of spider veins. Because the standard at vein treatment centers for billing sclerotherapy is by rounds, it’s important to be sure to avoid inexperienced providers who may unwittingly have to unnecessarily repeat treatment, providers that are compensated in time increments (e.g. $200 per half-hour), or vein centers that charge per injection site.

Spider vein removal treatments are considered to be cosmetic procedures, which are elective and are therefore not typically paid for by most insurance plans. If your vein doctor plans on treating you for venous insufficiency, they will often include spider vein treatment as part of the treatment plan as well. As a general rule, if a person has underlying venous insufficiency and symptoms due to vein disease, insurance will cover treatment, but if they have vein disease on ultrasound and no symptoms, treatment is considered purely cosmetic, so insurance will not cover the treatment.
