At Lake Wales Medical Group, we’re dedicated to giving patients the care they desire to have legs that not only feel better but look better, too. Our goal is to restore legs to their healthy, pain-free state with treatment that is individualized to each patient.
Our vein care specialist uses non-surgical techniques to treat vein disease, including minimally invasive techniques that help patients get back to their normal activity sooner. No general anesthesia or hospitalization is required. After your appointment and ultrasound evaluation, our doctor will recommend a treatment plan for you.
Dr. Silvestri diagnoses, treats and manages conditions in the arteries and veins. His area of interest is specifically in helping patients, with varicose veins and spider veins, restore their legs to a healthier state, including looking and feeling better, without surgery.
Dr. Silvestri specalizes in techniques for eliminating or closing off varicose veins, including laser therapy, sclerotherapy (the injection of saline solution into the vein to cause it to collapse), or radiofrequency or endovenous laser ablation – a minimally invasive procedure that uses intense heat to close off and destroy the vein from the inside. Sclerotherapy and topical laser treatments are ideal for smaller spider veins.
Many insurance providers will cover vein treatments, depending on the severity and medical necessity.
