Varicose Vein Treatment Testimonial Chicago IL


Symptoms of varicose veins include itching, burning, fatigue, cramps, heaviness and restlessness in the legs. Camille of Northwest Suburban Wood Dale, Illinois suffered from severe cramps. “The cramps in my legs would wake me up in the middle of the night,” she says, “the pain was excruciating. I had heaviness and fatigue as well, but that was nothing compared to the cramps.”

Fortunately for Camille, she lives near one of America’s top vein clinics in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs. Patients from around the country come to receive varicose vein treatment from Chicago Vein Specialist Dominic J. Tolitano MD at Advanced Vein Clinics.

Board Certified in both Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery with over 25 years experience, and having performed over 5,000 open heart surgeries and 5,000 vein treatments, Dr. Tolitano’s wealth of knowledge and experience allow him to develop varicose vein removal treatment plans that deliver great results. A pioneer in vein surgery, Dr. Tolitano developed the Groin Dissection with Ligation & Division of the Greater Saphenous Vein, a varicose vein removal treatment that has a 100% success rate and is covered by Medicare & insurance.

Dr. Tolitano said, “This patient needed an EVLT Laser Vein Removal Treatment on each leg, so we did those 2 weeks apart and had great success. Her symptoms are gone and her problem veins are closed, but there are still a few vein segments left over that we will remove by doing a Stab Phlebectomy. I use a special tool to make small punctures in the leg and manually pull the small vein pieces out. The patient is under IV sedation and feels no pain. The puncture wounds are so small they don’t need stitches and heal within a few weeks.”

At her follow up visit Camille was extremely impressed with the results of her varicose veins treatment, “The cramps in my legs are gone,” she said. “I can’t believe it. To get these results in just a few treatments is amazing. He’s a great surgeon. Don’t waste your time going to another vein clinic in Chicago, see Dr. Tolitano at Advanced Vein Clinics.”
