Diagnosis & Treatment Process
What truly sets Dr. Saraf apart is his uniquely comprehensive vein treatment process. He only provides minimally invasive vein treatments to ensure optimal comfort, convenience, and painlessness with no downtime. And he conducts a thorough investigation to identify and treat the root cause of your vein problems instead of just the symptoms, ensuring lasting results. The following is a step-by-step overview of Dr. Saraf’s diagnosis and treatment process.
Step 1: Consultation
Your vein treatment starts with a private consultation with Dr. Saraf. The goal is to determine if there’s a likelihood of underlying venous insufficiency. Identifying vein disease is one of the most essential components of vein treatment. Most vein problems are caused by venous insufficiency, a dangerous medical condition wherein the collapse of your vein valves makes blood accumulate in your leg veins. Unfortunately, most medical spas and inexperienced vein doctors treat the visible spider veins and varicose veins without adequate investigation. Consequently, the spider veins return later because the underlying disease hasn’t been treated.

Dr. Saraf favors comprehensive treatments that address the root cause of your vein problems, minimizing the risk of recurrence. He carefully examines your leg veins, reviews your medical history, and discusses your symptoms. He also asks you to describe how you feel — whether you’re experiencing leg heaviness, leg swelling, leg pain, restless leg syndrome, frequent leg cramps, or other signs and symptoms of vein disease. He looks through your medical history to determine if you have a history of deep vein thrombosis — people with a history of DVT are far more likely to experience venous insufficiency.
Step 2: Diagnosis
The consultation is followed by an advanced diagnostic procedure. The vein doctor runs various vascular imaging tests, like Duplex Ultrasound, to project a visual representation of the blood flow in your leg veins to a computer screen. The vascular imaging test conclusively reveals if you have venous insufficiency and the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems. The vascular imaging test also serves another important function — it can be used as visual evidence to support your insurance claims, improving your chance of getting better insurance coverage for your treatment.
After the diagnosis, the vein doctor discusses your treatment options. He’ll describe all the possible minimally invasive vein treatments, including radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, VenaSeal, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. He’ll explain what you can expect from the procedure, the pros, cons, cost of treatment, and insurance coverage options. Some treatments are eligible for insurance coverage, and some aren’t — the level of coverage also differs based on your specific insurance details. Dr. Saraf discusses all your options and recommends the ideal vein treatment for your specific needs.
Step 3: Primary Treatment
If you have underlying venous insufficiency, your vein treatment will start with radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal. During the ablative procedures, the vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface to insert a catheter or laser fiber that generates thermal or laser energy to close the diseased vein’s walls, rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier veins. During VenaSeal, the vein doctor injects a medical adhesive into the diseased vein to fuse its vein walls, turning it into scar tissue that gets absorbed by the body. All minimally invasive vein treatments are performed under local anesthesia, so you don’t feel any pain.

Step 4: Cosmetic Treatment
If you don’t have underlying venous insufficiency, or after the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor recommends ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy for the superficial varicose veins and spider veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy involves making small incisions on the skin’s surface to physically extract the superficial varicose veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sclerosant solution into the spider veins to fuse their walls, turning them into hardened tissues eventually absorbed by the body. The spider veins gradually fade away in 2 to 3 weeks, though you might need additional treatments.
Step 5: Recovery
Dr. Saraf’s comprehensive diagnosis and treatment process conclude within an hour with no downtime. He’ll provide a detailed overview of your recovery guidelines to ensure a smooth and optimal recovery. You’ll be asked to wear compression stockings for several weeks and avoid heavy lifting for a few days. However, you can resume most of your daily work and activities immediately.
