Vein Therapy

Dr. 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.

Joyce Vining RVT, LPN is a nurse and registered vascular technologist who has specialized in Phlebology since 1994. Joyce has successfully treated thousands of patients with all types  of venous insufficiencies including; spider veins, varicose veins; EVLT (Endovenous Laser Therapy), restless legs syndrome, venous ulcers and more.  She is the former President of the American College of Phlebology.

Joyce has been a national consultant for the past 17 years training physicians, nurses and ultrasound technicians on the newest and efficacious techniques for vascular insufficiencies.  As an onsite consultant, she has had the opportunity to share her knowledge and experience with many healthcare professionals nationwide.

In her spare time, Joyce loves to travel, spend time outdoors being active and practicing yoga.

More than 80 million people in the United States have problems with their veins, the vessels that return blood to the heart once it has circulated through the body. Many people suffering from venous disorders come to vascular surgeons looking for treatment to either relieve pain or improve the visible appearance of diseased veins.
