Varicose veins aren’t something to ignore. They should be treated, because they can become more serious in the future if they’re ignored. Rather than take the risk of developing further problems, you may want to talk with a vascular surgeon about what he or she can do for you. Among your options is the Venefit Procedure, which is minimally invasive and can provide you with legs that both look and feel better.
Vascular surgeons who perform this procedure report good success with it, and because it’s not very invasive you generally don’t have a long recovery period. That’s great news for people who need to go back to work quickly, or for those who have activities they want to engage in. The lack of downtime is among the many benefits you can receive with the Venefit or the VNUS Closure procedures. Your vascular surgeon can help you choose the right procedure that has the highest chance of giving you the best results.
Vein Treatment is About More Than Just Looks
Many people who have varicose veins seek out a vein clinic because they don’t like the way their legs look. That’s completely understandable, and a common complaint heard by vein doctors. However, there’s more to the issue than just what your legs look like. How they feel is another factor that can come into play. For a lot of people with varicose veins, pain and discomfort eventually become problematic. Aching, heaviness, restlessness, and related issues start to appear, and the only way to improve them is through the right vein treatment. In order to find the treatment that works best for your needs, a vein clinic can work with you and discuss the procedures and options you have.
There may also be underlying problems that are causing the varicose veins, and those will also need to be treated. Once other conditions are under control, it becomes easier to treat the vein problems so your legs will look and feel better. The Venefit Procedure and the VNUS Closure are just two of the choices you’ll have, as there are also other ways to treat varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, and other issues. By working with your doctor, you’ll have the highest chance of getting the right procedure and the best results.
Before you make a treatment choice, make sure you understand all the options and that your vascular surgeon has answered all your questions. A good understanding of the treatment you’ll be receiving and any downtime or aftercare issues is an important part of any kind of medical decision. Being an informed consumer can help you feel good about your treatment and see better results.

I can’t say enough about this doc. He goes above and beyond the scope of the usual doc. Will do anything he has to do to accomplish the best outcome. I can’t say enough about him and his staff
Having developed varicose veins at a young age and watching a family member go through the procedures multiple times with more than one doctor and little success, my experience with Dr. Kimmel and his staff was outstanding. The large bulging veins (that kept me out of shorts in the hot Florida sun) and the achiness/itching in my legs is gone. I had one session the resolve my spider veins as well which is proving to be equally successful. I would highly recommend Dr. Kimmel for anyone who needs to have this procedure done. And Melissa, Julie, Clara and other staff were excellent, professional, honest and great at what they do.
I went to Dr Kimmel for varicose veins. I had been to other doctors in the past and he is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor I have been to. He treats the underlying issues first which many doctors do not. His staff is also fantastic. Professional, knowledgeable and kind. If you need a vein doctor, do not go to anyone but him. Too many people advertise themselves as “vein treatment centers” and don’t know what they are doing. Dr Kimmel is truly a doctor who specializes in vascular issues and was great. Highly recommend
From the first visit to the last I was very satisfied with the doctor and his wonderful assistant, nurse and staff. The words to use, caring, professional and answered all my questions clearly. I would definitely recommend Dr, Kimmel to my family and friends. The doctor explained what he would do for the veins on my legs and the procedure. It has only been 3 weeks and my legs have improved so much & will continue to do so.Very positive experience.
I have just recently had the laser vein procedure on both of my legs done for extremely heavy various veins at the Kimmel Institute and cannot tell you how happy I am with the results. Dr. Kimmel and all of his staff were wonderful, professional and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I found Dr. Kimmel on the internet and started researching him and came up with only positive findings. I was still a little nervous about finding a doctor on the internet but when I called the office and came in for the initial screening, I knew I was in the right place. Check him out for yourself and I know you will be a happy as I am. Thank you, Dr. Kimmel and staff!
Dr. Kimmel and his Staff are an unbeatable combination of knowledge, expertise and Tender Loving Care. I enjoyed a truly positive experience from beginning to end…could not be happier with the results. Go… Kimmel Institute!
Richard Kimmel is the BEST. I had an extremely wonderful experience. Julie & Melissa really made it brainless for me. I highly recommend. Anyone that does not use him in my opinion is a fool. He is really that great. You won’t be disappointed. If there were more “stars” I would give it to Dr. Kimmel and his wonderful staff.
I called the office and new I found the right place. My first visit and consultation confirmed that. It was such a pleasure to be treated like I was their PRIORITY, not just another patient passing through. They answered all my questions and I felt comfortable asking them. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable; truly an experience like this is hard to find these days. Oh, and by the way…my legs look and feel GREAT!!! Highly recommend!!!
I underwent an ambulatory microphlebectomy,a chemical ablation and sclerotherapy with Dr Kimmel. He is a professional efficient surgeon. The whole staff especially Melissa and Clara are wonderful as well. They all create a calming atmosphere while the procedures are being performed. I have never been to an office where everyone shows they care about you. This is that type of place that Dr Kimmel has.
