Vein Treatment Options
Venous Disease Treatment in Houston, TX
Texas Endovascular provides state-of-the-art minimally invasive vein treatments without the risks of surgery or expense and hassle of going to the hospital. Our specialized technique allows our physicians to utilize transradial access through the wrist as well as access through the femoral artery in the groin, leading to less complications and a faster recovery time for patients.
At one time, patients with vein disease had very few treatment options. Some underwent a procedure commonly known as “vein stripping,” which was an inpatient surgery that required general anesthesia, hospital admission, and a long, painful recovery period. Thankfully, those days are behind us!
All the treatments performed at Texas Endovascular are minimally invasive, outpatient procedures. Dr. Eric Hardee and Dr. William Fox treat their patients in their office, without the need for general anesthesia or sedation. There is little or no recovery time needed. In fact, patients may resume normal activity right away. Most people can even return to work the same day they are treated.

What to Expect
When you schedule an appointment with Texas Endovascular, you will meet personally with Dr. Fox or Dr. Hardee, who will guide you through the entire process. Dr. Fox or Dr. Hardee will go over your full medical history and perform a focused physical examination to look at the symptoms that led you to seek treatment. If Dr. Fox or Dr. Hardee feels it is necessary based on the results of this examination, a diagnostic ultrasound evaluation will be performed.
