Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a highly specialized procedure for treating advanced varicose veins that are hidden beneath the skin. Dr. Malone utilizes the Color Duplex Venous Ultrasound to guide a small needle into the vein. A foaming medication called polidocanol is then injected into the vein, causing the vein to close down. Usually the polidocanol is injected as foam.
