Northside Vein Center and Clinic is the leading vein clinic in Chicago performing ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy treatment to help reduce and cure varicose and spider veins. Patients who have been dealing with varicose veins can look to ultrasound guided sclerotherapy with Dr. Summers as a solution to help reduce them.


What is the Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy Procedure?

If you are ready to take action against your unwanted varicose veins, Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy may be the perfect procedure for you. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy allows Dr. Summers, a board certified vein specialist, to precisely treat problematic veins that aren’t yet visible on the skins surface. During this procedure, a small needle is slid into the vein utilizing precise ultrasound guidance technology. Once the vein is reached, a foam solution is injected to destroy the vein.

Difference between Ultrasound Sclerotherapy and Conventional Sclerotherapy

There are many similarities between the two procedures. The only difference is that the doctor has a monitor on which he can visually see veins that cannot be seen with the ordinary eye. This means that he can find hidden veins beneath the surface of the skin and eliminate them with greater accuracy and precision.

Is Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy Covered By Insurance?

Your insurance company may cover some of your procedure—so check with them before you schedule your consultation. Dr. Summers can answer all of your pricing and financing options at your consultation in the Chicago or Lakeview offices.
