Varithena Icon


Varithena is an injectable microfoam consisting of polidocanol that is FDA Approved to treat varicose veins and other vein issues.

Radiofrequency Ablation Icon

Radiofrequency Ablation

A catheter is introduced into the vein and delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut.

Sclerotherapy Icon


A solution, known as a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins causing the blood to clot and the vein to scar.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy Icon

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Small incisions are made in the area of the vein, and then a special hook tool is used to remove the vein.

Conservative Therapies Icon

Conservative Therapies

Dr. Heeringa’s first approaches are always conservative and non-invasive. For some patients, these treatments may be all that’s necessary.

VenaSeal™ Icon


A catheter is inserted directly into the diseased vein and injects the VenaSeal® adhesive to seal the vein.

Hand Vein Treatment Icon

Hand Vein Treatment

As our skin thins with age, some of the veins and tendons that become more obvious on the backs of the hands are inevitable.
