insufficiency, and can have severe and chronic debilitating consequences if left untreated. The Solution At Vein Memphis, Dr. Sushma Parekh and her highly trained and experienced staff can diagnose the root cause of these symptoms and have the most technologically advanced equipment to treat this condition. Fellowship-trained in diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasoundguided interventional procedures, Dr. Parekh has helped hundreds of patients in the area with varicose veins and venous insufficiency using the “Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment” procedure

that eliminates the root cause of this entity. This is considered a medically necessary procedure and is covered by most insurance carriers. The clinic also performs sclerotherapy for spider veins and is Memphis’ only All-Woman Team in this field.
