Venous insufficiency (reflux) develops when the valves within the veins of your leg fail to function properly. This can cause blood to pool in your legs and lead to symptoms such as pain, swelling, leg heaviness and fatigue. In severe cases skin changes, ulcers, and varicose veins may occur.

Dr. Ghanami is a board certified, fellowship trained vascular surgeon with experience and expertise in treating Varicose Veins, Spider Veins, and Reticular Veins with minimally invasive procedures.
Dr. Ghanami and his team focus on providing the best procedures to help eleviate symptoms, prevent further disease manifestations and improve overall appearance. Technology and advancements in the industry have provided new opportunities for minimally invasive procedures.Achieving the improvement of symptoms related to vein problems is far more obtainable, safe, and convenient than ever before.
The first step to diagnosing venous disease is to perform a thorough physical examination and testing involving ultrasound, to which we determine the level and cause of your condition.
Once we have determined the underlying cause of your condition, we recommend the treatment that will help your condition the best.For some spider veins we offer a non surgical solution called sclerotherapy, a relatively inexpensive option that can be performed in an outpatient setting. Depending on the severity of the vein condition we may recommend minimally invasive endovenous treatments, where the actual damaged vein is treated by a radio frequency ablation. Even for vein surgery (ligation or phlebotomy) most patients return home the same day.
Most of these treatment options are scheduled here in the office with the patient returning home within hours. Dr. Ghanami is a board certified, and fellowship trained surgeon with years of experience in performing these types of procedures. In severe disease cases where complicated venous procedures are recommended, the intervention will be scheduled at a designated facility with most patients returning home the same day.
Post procedure follow up visits are scheduled in the office with Dr. Ghanami to ensure that the results of the procedure are meeting your expectations and that you are healing successfully.
