Comprehensive Vein Care
The Vein Center of North Florida uses the latest technology and least invasive procedures possible to repair and optimize the function of your veins. Whether it’s unsightly spider veins or painful bulging veins, it’s not about vanity, it’s about vitality. What you see on the outside is a call to attention for what needs to be corrected on the inside. The Vein Center of North Florida can help you.
Varicose Veins Treatment
(Venous Ablations)
Endovenous thermal ablation for varicose veins treatment is minimally invasive and involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube called a catheter into a diseased vein to seal it shut using heat. Blood that would normally return toward the heart through these veins will then travel through other veins instead. Over time the treated vein shrinks and is absorbed by the body. Compared with surgical options like ligation and vein stripping, The Vein Center of North Florida practices endovenous ablation resulting in less pain and quicker recovery time.
Abdominal Aortic
Aneurysm Repair
An aortic aneurysm is an abnormal enlargement of the main blood vessel exiting the heart. Aneurysms can also occur in other arteries, but the abdomen is the most common site. Abdominal aortic aneurysms may involve other pelvic blood vessels or be complicated by plaque buildup. These dilated blood vessels can rupture if the wall gets too thin. If a large aneurysm ruptures, it will cause heavy bleeding into the abdomen. This is a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment.


The majority of aneurysms do not have any signs or symptoms and are discovered incidentally. Usually, most aortic aneurysms can be repaired with minimal incisions using an endovascular technique. Surgical Specialists of Ocala chooses the least invasive surgical procedure whenever possible. Contact us today at
(352) 237-1212, if you’ve been told you have an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
