Since establishing the Newtown office in 2008, Vein Institute has expanded across Connecticut. The team works to provide patients with the most advanced, out-patient, office-based procedures including radio-frequency ablation, Venaseal®, ambulatory phlebectomy, sclerotherapy, and infrared coagulation for treatment of hemorrhoids. All of our clinical and office staff is BCLS certified by the American Heart Association and all of our providers are also members of the American Vein & Lymphatic Society. Our providers make treatment recommendations by first pinpointing the underlying cause of our patients’ symptoms.
