Varicose Vein Treatment Cost: A Detailed Estimation

varicose veins treatment costs

Overview Of Varicose Veins Treatment Costs

 

Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen veins that will appear on the surface of your skin, especially on your legs. If they are not treated on time, they can result in extreme health complications. Depending on your condition’s severity, various treatment options exist for varicose veins. The detailed varicose veins treatment costs are mentioned below.

 

Veins or blood vessels only have single-way valves to ensure the blood flows only in a single direction. When the vein walls expand or become too elastic, it will weaken or manage the valves. When the valves are damaged or become weak, the blood will move in another direction or pool in the veins. Due to the accumulation of blood in the veins, they will become swollen, twisted, and enlarged.

 

The majority of the varicose veins treatment options are covered by insurance plans. A wide range of factors affect the varicose vein treatment cost, including the type of treatment, vein clinic location, and many more.

How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Costs?


The varicose veins treatment costs depend upon the type of procedure you are following for its treatment. Hence, further is the list of such treatments along with their cost:

1. Compression Stockings


If your varicose vein condition is in its initial stage, the vein doctor will recommend you wear compression stockings. The compression stockings and socks will put an adequate amount of pressure on your legs to give you pain relief.

 

The cost of knee-high compression stockings will be anywhere between $64 to $228 or more. You can also buy these compression stockings or socks at local pharmacies or online stores. When purchasing, make sure to acquire stockings that have mild to moderate compression between 8 and 30 mmHg.

2. Medications And Dressings


In order to reduce the pain and swelling in your legs, the vein specialist will also recommend medications and dress your leg with bandages. The price of the leg dressing can vary from $100 to $500 or more, depending on your location and healthcare service provider.

 

As for the cost of the medications, it can be anywhere between $150 to $500 or more, depending on the type of medicine prescribed by the doctor, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, fluid pills, anticoagulants, etc.

3. Ablation

 

Ablation is one of the standard minimally invasive procedures that is used to treat varicose veins. The doctor will use heat or chemicals in order to destroy and take out the damaged or weakened veins from your legs.

 

Your insurance plan usually covers ablation treatment costs. If you are wondering how much does varicose vein treatment cost without insurance, you can expect to pay $1,500 to $5,000 for radiofrequency ablation therapy.

4. Sclerotherapy


Sclerotherapy is also a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure where the vein doctor will inject foam injection into the damaged veins in your legs. This is one of the standard treatment options for spider veins.

 

This spider vein treatment cost ranges from $300 to $500 per session. On average, you need to attend about 2 or 3 sessions to get pain relief and be free of varicose veins. However, some vein clinics charge about $2,000 to $3,000 for sclerotherapy, which includes aftercare services as well.

5. Ligation And Stripping

 

Ligation and stripping is a surgical treatment option for varicose veins. In this procedure, the vein doctor will make a small cut in your legs to eliminate the damaged veins and ensure proper blood flow.

 

How much does vein treatment cost for ligation and stripping? Since this is a surgical treatment done by only vein specialists, the average treatment cost varies from $1,500 to $3,000 per surgery.

6. Phlebectomy


Phlebectomy is another non-surgical treatment for varicose veins known for instant results. The doctor will make micro holes in your skin to remove affected veins from your legs. The entire procedure takes about 60 minutes or less and does not need stitches.

 

The varicose veins treatment cost ranges from $2,000 to $4,000 for phlebectomy. There is no need for multiple sessions because you will see instant results from your initial session.

7. Laser Therapy

 

Laser therapy is used to remove blood clots from your veins and close the damaged veins in your legs. It is also a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure where the doctor uses laser energy to remove affected veins.

 

For one session, the average price of this laser therapy is $1,000 to $3,000. If your condition is severe and you need multiple session treatment, you can expect to spend a few more thousands of dollars.

 

Here is a quick look at the varicose veins treatment costs:

 

Varicose Veins TreatmentCost
Compression Stockings $64 to $228
Medications and Dressings $100 to $500
Ablation $1,500 to $5,000

Phlebectomy $2,000 to $4,000
Laser Therapy $1,000 to $3,000

What Are The Other Costs Associated With Varicose Veins Treatment?

 

Apart from the varicose veins treatment costs, there are other related expenses. For example, you need to pay for the consultation or appointment fee when visiting the vein doctor for a varicose vein diagnosis.

 

In order to determine whether you have varicose veins, the doctor will conduct some tests. So, you need to pay for these diagnostic tests as well. You can visit Advanced Medical Group for affordable varicose vein diagnosis and treatment.

 

If you are undergoing surgical varicose vein treatment, there might be separate expenses that will be added to your final bills, such as anesthesia fees, surgeon fees, hospital or room fees, etc.

If you are suffering from varicose veins, it is best to consult a vein doctor to get diagnosed and treated. As for the varicose veins treatment costs, you are expected to spend anywhere between $100 to $5,000 depending on the type of treatment, your location, and the healthcare provider.

 

Most of the varicose vein treatment options are covered by insurance except for a few treatments like medications, compression stockings, etc. So, it is better to talk to your insurance company before opting for the treatment to know if they offer coverage for the specific treatment that you need to undergo.
