Venous Treatments: Expert Care and Cutting-Edge Solutions at Monterey Bay Vascular

Venous diseases are a subset of vascular diseases primarily affecting the veins in the legs and pelvis. These conditions can significantly reduce the quality of life. They may lead to chronic and potentially life-threatening complications if not effectively managed. Monterey Bay Vascular stands at the forefront of addressing these issues, providing state-of-the-art venous treatments. Let us explore the various treatments for venous diseases, their benefits, and their impact on patients’ health. 

Understanding Venous Diseases 

Venous diseases affect the veins in the body, especially in the legs, leading to discomfort, pain, and severe health issues if left untreated. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of these diseases is crucial for timely medical intervention. 

Types of Venous Diseases 

  1. Varicose Veins: Enlarged, twisted veins, typically in the legs, caused by weakened valves. 
  1. Spider Veins: Smaller, web-like veins that can develop on legs and face, often a cosmetic concern. 
  1. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): A condition where blood clots form in a deep vein, usually in the legs, posing a life-threatening risk. 

State-of-the-Art Venous Treatments 

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) 

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure used at Monterey Bay Vascular to treat varicose veins. This outpatient procedure uses high-frequency radio waves to create intense heat within the varicose vein, closing it and redirecting blood flow to healthier vessels. 


Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sclerosing solution into affected veins, causing them to scar and collapse. This treatment is particularly effective for spider, reticular, and varicose veins, requiring multiple sessions over several months. 


VenaSeal represents a novel approach to venous disease treatment. It involves sealing the diseased vein with a glue-like substance, eliminating the need for heat or local anesthesia. This FDA-approved method redirects blood into healthier veins, relieving symptoms effectively. 

Micro Phlebectomy 

Micro Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive technique to remove varicose veins through tiny incisions. This procedure, conducted under local anesthesia, leaves minimal to no scarring, and allows for a quick return to daily activities. 

IVC Filter 

The IVC Filter placement is a specialized procedure for patients with a considerable risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). It prevents blood clots from traveling to the lungs, which can be life-threatening. 


Thrombectomy is an urgent surgical or interventional treatment to remove blood clots and restore blood flow, often necessary to prevent severe complications.
