Laser Vein Center opens in O’Fallon, MO

Best Doctors of St. Louis 2010 magazine coverThe Laser Vein Center is a leading St. Louis vein center under the direction of board-certified vein specialist Dr. Thomas Wright. We offer a wide range of minimally invasive and effective treatments to help you get rid of spider veins and varicose veins with as little downtime as possible. At the Laser Vein Center, we understand that problem veins are more than just a cosmetic concern. Varicose veins are often a symptom of chronic vein disease, which may lead to venous ulcers if left untreated.

Not long ago, getting rid of varicose veins or spider veins required invasive vein surgery, also known as “vein stripping.” Vein surgery was performed in a hospital, usually involved a lengthy and often uncomfortable recovery period, and sometimes resulted in noticeable scars.

You’ll be glad to know that there are now alternatives to invasive vein surgery. Dr. Wright has been a leader in bringing new and effective vein treatments, including the new Veinwave™ technology, to greater St. Louis, giving his patients a number of minimally invasive vein treatment options. As a result, there has never been a better time to explore treatment options to get rid of varicose veins.

The vein treatments offered at our new OFallon location treatment center include duplex ultrasound, Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT), sclerotherapy, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, Veinwave, and hand vein treatment. The minimally-invasive vein services we offer can be performed in the comfort and privacy of our clinic, require little or no anesthesia, and are usually completed in less than an hour. They offer excellent results and quick recovery times.
