Hamilton Vein Center to Be the First in Texas to Offer Varithena®, a Minimally-Invasive Nonsurgical Solution to Treat Varicose Veins
As the leading vein clinic of Texas, we are able to offer our patients the most-experienced and highest quality of care as well as the most advanced and minimally invasive techniques available” says Dr. Carlos R. Hamilton III, Founder and Medical Director of Hamilton Vein Center. “Our mission is to spread awareness of and relief from vein disease all while providing the best possible outcomes to patients, and being able to offer patients the latest in treatment options is a part of that."
Hamilton Vein Center, the leading vein clinic of Texas, will now offer patients the latest treatment from BTG International Inc. Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is a prescription medicine used to treat varicose veins caused by problems with the great saphenous veins. It has been used widely in Europe for years, and is now FDA-approved for use in the U.S.
Like other vein treatments, Varithena improves a patient’s symptoms related to or caused by varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Such symptoms include leg heaviness and fatigue, restless legs and cramping, swelling, skin changes including discoloration, itchiness and ulcers. Currently, Hamilton Vein Center offers treatments for vein disease including radiofrequency ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. Varithena will add another treatment option for patients suffering from vein disease and does not require any incisions, which makes it a desirable treatment option for some patients. Varithena is also a quick treatment that takes less than an hour and requires no local anesthesia. Varithena is similar to foam sclerotherapy and is administered through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. Once treated, the diseased vein collapses and blood flow shifts to healthy veins relieving pressure and symptoms caused by the damaged veins.
Hamilton Vein Center is Houston’s first and leading vein center led by interventional and vascular radiologists specializing in outpatient vein treatments. Hamilton Vein Center is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive, least painful approach to the diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders using the most advanced, minimally invasive procedures available. Founded in March 2010 by Dr. Carlos R. Hamilton III, Hamilton Vein Center is committed to championing awareness and relief from vein disease. Hamilton Vein Center currently has eight locations throughout the greater Houston area including: Bellaire/Galleria, Clear Lake/Webster, Lake Jackson, Katy, Kingwood, Sugar Land, Tomball/Willowbrook and The Woodlands. Hamilton Vein Center opened its first Austin area location in early 2014 and now has two Austin locations in Round Rock and South Austin.
