What should I expect?

Few people are very familiar with high-tech procedures such as the varicose vein removal treatments offered by the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center. If you are considering vein treatment in the Oklahoma City area, you naturally would be curious about the treatment process.

First and foremost, every patient who works with the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center can expect exceptional service and personal attention from the beginning of the process to the end. As soon as you contact us, you will see that we are not the run-of-the-mill surgical practice. We strive to be the “Ritz-Carlton” of vein treatment, not the “Holiday Inn.”

We understand that medical care, including vein treatment, is not simply fixing a problem with appropriate tools, but a personal, subjective experience. For this reason, we have conducted thorough scientific surveys of our patients’ personal experiences and have designed every part of our practice from our patients’ perspectives. We put ourselves in your shoes and focus on your comfort and convenience.

Before Vein Treatment

As part of our commitment to top-tier service and professionalism, we try our best to educate you from the beginning about your treatment options. During your initial consultation, vein doctor in Oklahoma City, Dr. Pedulla, will first listen to your needs and concerns, focusing on how best to serve you. Then, Dr. Pedulla will attempt to find the source of your vein problems using our advanced ultrasound imaging technology. He will explain what is going on inside your body and blood vessels using plain, understandable language.

Once Dr. Pedulla makes a diagnosis and explains it to you, he will then go over your vein treatment options in detail. If you need treatment for varicose veins, for example, Dr. Pedulla will describe howEVLT®, or sclerotherapy can benefit you as well as any possible risks or side effects. He may recommend a specific treatment, but the decision is ultimately up to you. If you have any questions, Dr. Pedulla will do his best to help you understand everything you want to know.

After Vein Treatment

As a cardiologist and as a vein treatment specialist, Dr. Pedulla has always focused on minimally-invasive techniques. Using the most advanced technology available, the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center strives to make your vein treatment experience as painless and comfortable as possible. As a result, nearly all of our vein treatment procedures are outpatient procedures that take less than an hour. In addition, our minimally invasive techniques require only the tiniest of incisions that—with a local anesthetic—are virtually painless and cause no scarring.

Because they are so quick and non-invasive, our vein treatments typically require little or no recovery time before resuming normal physical activity. This, combined with our extremely high success rate, means that in almost all cases once your treatment is over, it’s over. Depending on your specific vein problem and body type, Dr. Pedulla may suggest that you return for a follow-up ultrasound to ensure complete success. Remember to follow any postoperative instructions that Dr. Pedulla gives you in order to prevent complications or side effects.
