Renton center offers alternative vein care
November 13, 2008 · Updated 5:17 PM
Valley Radiologists, a leading area medical practice specializing in diagnostic and interventional radiology services, will open the Vanishing Veins Northwest Center in Renton on Monday to provide alternatives to major surgery for patients with varicose veins, spider veins and related conditions.
The new Vanishing Veins Northwest center will focus on two treatment methods: Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) and injection sclerotherapy.
Unlike traditional surgery for varicose veins and spider veins, both procedures are virtually painless and conducted on an outpatient basis, under local anesthesia.
Vanishing Veins Northwest is at 17930 Talbot Road S., Renton.
