While Laser Vein Removal (EVLT) for varicose veins has revolutionized treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), a small percentage of varicose veins are too large and swollen to be closed by laser vein therapy. To solve this problem, Advanced Vein Clinics founder Dr. Dominic J. Tolitano has developed the Groin Dissection with Ligation & Division of the Greater Saphenous Vein – a varicose vein removal treatment with a 100% success rate that’s covered by most insurance.
Dr. Tolitano removes a segment of the malfunctioning vein. This removes the vein from the system with no chance of re-opening.
“We’ve done 35 Groin Dissections and 100% of those veins have stayed closed. They’re not going to re-open. I guarantee it,” said Dr. Tolitano.
With over 5,000 open heart surgeries, 4,000 vein procedures and 20 years of experience with the Greater Saphenous Vein, Dr. Tolitano is one of a select few vein specialists in the world qualified to do this procedure. And what’s more impressive is that patients go home shortly after the varicose vein removal treatment.
Dr. Tolitano says, “By doing the procedure here at Advanced Vein Clinics, we can make the treatment less expensive by eliminating the need for a hospital stay. Patients come in, get treated and are back to their normal activities in the next few days.”
Suburban Chicago working mom Lakeshia Sumrall-Carr is one of those patients. She suffered from pain and swelling in her legs for years before coming to Advanced Vein Clinics to get this ground breaking varicose vein removal treatment.
“It started during pregnancy with my first child and has gotten worse over the years. It feels like pins and needles stabbing my legs. I have a long commute to work and if I sit for too long my legs are heavy and tired in addition to the stabbing pains.” Lakeshia says.
But just days after her varicose vein removal treatment the pain is gone. At her 2 week follow-up visit Lakeshia said, “Not only do my legs feel better, but they look better. My skin is smooth. I was shocked. The pain is gone and the cosmetic aspect was a great unexpected benefit. No more pain on my commute to and from work. I would recommend this treatment to anyone suffering from varicose veins.”
