Ask A Long Island Vascular Doctor: What Is “Image-Guided” Vein Surgery?

Long Island vascular doctorDr. Andrew Rochman, Medical Director of Advanced Vein Care Solutions, is a respected Long Island vascular doctor and varicose vein treatment specialist on Long Island. He is a proponent of modern minimally invasive vein treatment using laser-based and image-guided surgeries. Read on to learn more about image-guided vein surgery, one of the most comfortable ways to treat your veins.

What do Long Island residents need to know about Image-guided vein surgery?

Although X-ray technology has been around for over 100 years, it’s difficult and dangerous to use x-rays to visualize for any length of time. Luckily, sonography took off in the 1960s and 70s, which uses echo technology to bounce soundwaves off of bodily structures to create an image on a monitor. Also known as ultrasound imaging, this form of radiology allows practitioners to visualize structures such as leg veins safely for a long period of time.

What are the advantages of image-guided surgery?

Ultrasound imaging opened up a realm of surgical procedures like never before. Instead of putting patients through an open surgery under general anesthesia in order to have full access to the inner body, surgeons can now use ultrasound devices to “see” the veins without having to “open up” patients. Now Dr. Rochman and other vein surgeons can perform many venous surgeries with only minimal access to the veins while using ultrasound-assisted imaging.

Image-guided surgeries carry reduced surgical risks, boost patient comfort, and provide convenience for patients because these surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis without heavy anesthesia or a hospital stay. Additionally, these minimally invasive procedures are just as effective or more than traditional surgery!
