The Vein Center of North Florida is continuing to make our practice as safe as possible for patients during the Coronavirus pandemic. Upon arrival, patients are pre-screened at the door with a few general questions and a temperature check before each appointment. Our office is thoroughly wiped down and cleaned periodically throughout the day to minimize virus transmission. Patients are asked to wear masks within the building and to use hand sanitizer. We feel confident in our ability to safely see patients with the care that you have come to expect and deserve.

The Leaders of Comprehensive Vein Care Treatment In Ocala, FL

Comprehensive Vein Care.

The Vein Center of North Florida is committed to the treatment of all types of venous insufficiency and disease. Many people seek treatment for cosmetic purposes. Yes, bulging veins are ugly, but they can also cause deeper medical issues that need to be addressed. In fact, more than 30 million Americans suffer from serious forms of vein disease, making vein disease a more common problem than heart disease or stroke.

More than 30 million Americans suffer from varicose veins or a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
Venous reflux disease is 2X more prevalent than coronary heart disease (CHD) and 5X more prevalent than peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Function of Our Veins

The purpose of our veins is to carry deoxygenated blood back to our heart. The heart pumps blood for the arteries to carry to your organs and other parts of the body and the veins then pump the deoxygenated blood back up to the heart. When a vein is not working properly it becomes more difficult to pump blood back to the heart. This causes the blood to pool, which results in bulging of the vein.

Common Reasons People Seek Treatment

Spider Veins

Spider veins get their name from their web-like appearance. They may become discolored and can sometimes look like a bruise. While these veins are ugly, they do not bulge like varicose veins and are not considered medically necessary by insurance. We proudly use ASCLERA for sclerotherapy.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins bulge and are often blue and/or black in appearance. They commonly occur in the legs and ankles. Varicose veins can cause other symptoms and medical problems including cramping, aching, burning, throbbing, tingling, swelling, ulcers, sores and rashes.

Advanced Treatment Options

Stopping blood flow to the diseased vein is an effective way to treat both the medical and cosmetic aspects of varicose and spider veins. The Vein Center of North Florida offers many treatment options to address vein issues including ClosureFast radio-frequency venous ablation, phlebectomy, sclerotherapy and the revolutionary, non-invasive VenaSeal™ Closure System. Our dedicated team of physicians, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners and staff have decades of experience in treating vein issues.
