Hospitals have come a long way since the 1600s when this print was made, but the answer is simple. Today all modern vein treatments are done mainly in vein clinics (sometimes called vein centers). Not only is it less complicated to go there than to a hospital–you don’t have to be “admitted” and you won’t have to pay hospital overhead charges–but you’ll still have a fully qualified physician performing or overseeing your procedure with all the latest equipment and instruments. You’ll be covered by insurance the same as if you were in a hospital. And often it’s easier to get to a vein clinic than to a hospital.
When you have varicose veins you don’t need to go to a hospital to get the most advanced diagnosis and treatment options. Vein specialists generally do all their diagnostic work and perform all their procedures right in their vein clinics. Treatment options at reputable vein clinics may include sclerotherapy, endovenous radiofrequency [VNUS] or laser closure, ambulatory phlebectomy, and vein stripping (rarely done today).
