Vein Clinics of America (VCA), the largest network of physicians in the United States specializing in the minimally invasive treatment of varicose vein disease, has opened a new location in 707 Eagleview Blvd, Exton, PA. This location will add selected interventional procedures to the full range of vein treatments provided at existing VCA locations, enabling patients to undergo additional procedures. The new center will be led by Dr. Robert S. Singh, a board-certified vascular surgeon and served as medical director at the vein center of St. Joseph Medical Center. VCA now has three centers in Pennsylvania and 45 locations nationally. For 30 years, VCA has specialized in treating a wide spectrum of vein disease, including varicose veins, spider veins and venous leg ulcers. "Treating venous disease utilizing enhanced techniques is a wonderful and exciting combination,” said Dr. Singh. “It allows us to maintain the high standard of care expected at VCA, while integrating additional minimally invasive procedures. These treatments are typically performed in a hospital setting, but will now be offered in a relaxed, accessible and safe outpatient facility.

”Varicose vein disease is more than just a cosmetic problem. Ignoring it can result in symptoms such as pain, fatigue, itching, burning and swelling. Sufferers can experience throbbing and restlessness, where they feel the need to constantly keep their legs moving. Vein disease is a progressive condition that will only worsen if left untreated.

VCA’s network physicians utilize a comprehensive, minimally invasive treatment approach that includes Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT) and Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy. The use of Sclerotherapy, combined with ELT, allows VCA’s physicians to treat the smallest spider vein to the largest ropelike varicose vein, and even venous leg ulcers. Neither option requires hospitalization or surgery. Instead each is performed in the physician's office.

In addition to leg vein treatments, this center will also offer select interventional procedures. These treatments, which require a highly skilled, board-certified physician and state-of-the-art equipment and imaging, address a broader array of procedures in new treatment areas including gynecology and urology. With interventional techniques, Dr. Singh and his team will be able to assess and, in some cases, non-surgically treat diseases at their source. This approach offers patients lower risk, less pain and reduced recovery time compared to invasive surgeries, and patients are able to return to home the same day.
