Since 2013, Dr. César García-Madrid has the Sapheon certification to use VenaSeal in treating varicose veins. Today, as a pioneer in this type of operation, he has established himself as a renowned international specialist.

Through an ultrasound, and through a small access point in the patient’s skin, the doctor guides a tiny catheter into the diseased vein (varicose vein). Once in the affected area, the device VenaSeal dispenses a small amount of medical adhesive that closes the vein. Once closed, blood is redirected to other healthy veins in the leg.
Among the benefits of VenaSeal is the fact that anesthesia or tumescent anesthetic sedation is not necessary. The patient’s recovery time is reduced and they can return to normal life immediately after treatment. In addition, this type of intervention does not cause any post treatment pain nor does it require undergoing uncomfortable measures.
