Sclerotherapy Sclerotherapy is a treatment for spider veins, which are small purple and red blood vessels. Spider veins are hereditary and while most commonly found on the thigh or lower leg, spider veins can form virtually anywhere on the leg, from the uppermost region of the thigh to the ankle. Occasionally, spider veins will appear on the face. Sclerotherapy is a very popular cosmetic procedure.
Doctors mark the veins he will treat while the patient is standing and usually address the larger veins first. The doctor injects a clerosing solution into the vein with a micro-needle. The solution causes the vein to turn white and then gradually disappear. A typical treatment lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. The injections may sting a bit, especially if saline is used, but the discomfort does not last long.

The physician-led multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive, patient-centered care for any condition, from the simple problems to the very complex, in the patient’s own environment. Thanks to modern technology and our sophisticated, multi-faceted delivery system, we can do more tests and procedures in our patient’s home or place of business than other primary care physicians do in their office.
House call doctors are equipped to perform most procedures normally performed in a medical office. House call doctors utilize electronic medical records and will coordinate home health and hospice services, mobile imaging services, durable medical equipment services, laboratory services, and specialist referral services.
House call doctors acts as the primary care physician or as augmentation to or as an interim physician to the patients’ present medial team. Doctor’s House calls provide post hospital stabilization service to physicians, insurance plans, and hospitals to mitigate hospital re-admissions.
