ClariVein®

If уоu’rе suffering frоm unsightly or painful vаrісоѕе veins or chronic venous insufficiency, ClariVein is a new, minimally-invasive treatment option.

Whаt іѕ ClariVein?

The Princeton Vascular Center’s very own vascular surgeon and vein specialist, Dr. Brotman O’Neill, was present for the first ClariVein procedure in the United States and was the first to implement this procedure in Mercer County.  

ClariVein®IC is a specialty infusion catheter with a rotating wire tip designed for the controlled 360-degree dispersion of physician-specified agents to the targeted treatment area. Unlike radiofrequency ablation, the procedure uses mechanical pressure and the infused medication to treat the diseased spider or varicose vein. Since there is no heat delivery to the affected varicose veins, the procedure is virtually pain-free. No heat means no tumescence, or swelling, or need for as much local anesthetic!

The ClariVein®IC device is a thin catheter (tube) that your doctor inserts into the peripheral vasculature through a pin-sized entrance point. The device is several times smaller than other devices used in peripheral vascular treatments allowing the entrance point to be smaller. As a result, there is minimal discomfort or bruising noted afterward. The ClariVein®IC is a fully disposable, minimally-invasive varicose vein treatment, and can be efficiently used in an office setting.

ClariVein is performed by the best vein specialists and doctors in NJ at the Princeton Vascular Center’s multiple locations in New Jersey, including Mt. Laurel, Princeton, Point Pleasant, and Wayne. Find out if ClariVein is right for you by contacting us today!
