Vein Disease Treatment

realself-top100-doctor-2015Dr. Daniel Ritacca continues to stay on the global forefront of varicose & spider vein treatments as he recently took a trip to help thousands in Honduras suffering from venous insufficiencies and ulcers.

Dr. Ritacca has acquired a special expertise in treating varicose veins by the new, state-of-the-art and FDA-approved procedure called Endovenous Laser, or EVLT. This procedure has rapidly replaced the traditional way of treating veins by a procedure called surgical stripping.  EVLT is a minimally-invasive procedure that is done in our accredited surgery center with local anesthetic to remove large varicose veins. This procedure requires no downtime and leaves no scars.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
