Varicose Veins



Varicose veins can happen to any normal vein that fails to properly do its job circulating blood in the body.

When one has varicose veins in their legs, gravity has dramatically slowed down that vein’s ability to help return blood from the leg to the heart, so naturally, they begin to swell and become disfigured.

Here at OVEC, we strongly believe in the preservation of these veins. Mending the problematic varicose veins with VenaSeal allows the vein to return to it’s original state, and to continue working as it should.

Typical American medical treatment of the larger, bulging veins is not always adequate, to put it delicately and kindly. Sometimes, it’s as if our colleagues don’t get out much, or as if they think all important medical knowledge stops at our coastlines. We at OVEC have received advanced training in newer groundbreaking techniques used around the world, and have successfully implemented these.  Two examples would be what we call the “Riviera Technique” pioneered by Drs. Pittaluga and Chastanet in Monaco, and then the VenaSeal adaptation we use for peskier, difficult to treat feeder veins of these larger bulges, called “perforator veins”. These veins are typically poorly or inadequately treated in American vein centers, as we hear all the time both from patients who’ve been treated elsewhere, and from our colleagues as well.
