VARICOSE VEIN TREATMENT
Proven medical treatments for more youthful healthy looking legs
WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS?
Varicose veins are bulging, elongated and malfunctioning veins. They result from venous reflux. This can occur from incompetence of the valves in the great saphenous vein, as well as other veins.
WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY
The vascular specialist performs this fast, outpatient, non-surgical procedure with the aid of ultrasound guidance. Local anesthetic is used to numb the thigh, after which a very thin tube is inserted into the malfunctioning vein. Radiofrequency energy is used to heat and seal the diseased vein. This will help the healthy veins carry blood up the leg. The varicose veins and associated swelling and symptoms improve after the procedure.

||MICC is proud to announce we have fully implemented an electronic medical record (EMR) system throughout all of our locations. Congress has mandated all hospitals and physicians to implement an EMR system by 2014. We recognized the importance of transitioning to EMRs and are way ahead of the Federal mandates. We were one of the first cardiology practices in Miami to introduce this. Our system, Intergy by Sage, has been approved by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT®), a certifying body recognized by the Federal Government. >> Learn more
||MICC has recently been recognized for our significant commitment to quality and safety by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL). ICANL, a non-profit organization, developed a standardized accreditation program which evaluates critical components of nuclear cardiology laboratories. Following rigorous reviews and evaluations, ICANL granted accreditation to MICC. Our patients have the additional assurance of knowing that our services have been certified by an independent agency. >> Learn more
