When you visit our Lancaster practice, rest assured your health and safety are paramount to our Lancaster vein specialists. Vein or venous treatments have advanced far beyond the painful treatments patient’s experienced in the past.
At AVLC, the doctors use vascular ultrasounds both to diagnose health issues and to guide some procedures to ensure the damaged part of the vein is treated.

Specializing in Varicose and Spider Veins:
Varicose veins and spider veins can occur anywhere in the body. They can appear as large, twisted and/or bulging veins and are often found in the legs. Spider veins are a common problem for both men and women. Spider veins consist of small red or blue and purple veins that are visible because they are close to the surface of skin. They can cover a small area of skin or a very large area of jagged lines.
The most common symptoms that patients experience include pain, heaviness, tiredness, burning, itching, tingling, swelling, restless legs, and/or tenderness around the veins.
These symptoms, if left untreated could lead to much more serious medical conditions, such as:
• Phlebitis – Inflammation of the vein
• Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – Blood clots form in an enlarged vein
• Venous Stasis Ulcers – Ulcers form in an enlarged vein when proper drainage does not occur.
Old vs. New Vein Treatments:
Gone are the days for patients with vein disease who generally had to undergo a procedure known as “vein stripping,” which always carried an extensive and painful recovery period.
Today we incorporate the following non-invasive treatments, which are specifically designed to allow the body to eliminate unsightly veins as pain-free as possible. We sit down with you and go over which procedure will work best for your healing.
The following are some of the most common procedures we perform:
• Ultrasound Vein Screenings
• VNUS Radiofrequency
• Endovenous Laser Ablation
• Traditional Sclerotherapy
• Guided Sclerotherapy
All of the vein disease treatments performed at our Lancaster Vein Center are minimally invasive, outpatient procedures. We treat our patients in our office, negating the need for heavy anesthesia or sedation.
There is little or no recovery time needed. In fact, our patients can resume normal activity after leaving the office and can more than likely, return to work the same day that they are treated.
