This is a Simple Office-Based Procedure

Doctor York and his patients alike are very impressed with the CoolTouch procedure. This procedure is minimally invasive and is performed right in our office here at Spectrum Health Center in Ludington. You will be awake the entire procedure and feel very little pain, if any at all! We numb the area on your leg with anesthetic and start the treatment. The procedure takes approximately one hour per leg.

Cosmetically Pleasing Results

One of the greatest benefits of the CoolTouch CTEV procedure here at Dr. York’s office, is that patients do not experience the incision scars or bruising that are often present with alternative treatments. The incision is very small and there are no stitches necessary. The symptoms will begin to improve immediately after the procedure is complete. However, depending on the severity of the patient’s symptoms, it may take up to 1-2 weeks for veins to completely disappear.

98% Success Rate & A Quick Recovery

After Dr. York finishes your procedure, Dr. York will wrap your leg in a compression bandage and you will be up and on your feet the same day. You will be able to resume your everyday routine and daily activities within weeks of your procedure. This procedure has demonstrated a 98% closure rate after 8 years of patient follow-up. This technology has proven to be the best long term result in the endovenous ablation marketplace.

TIP OF THE DAY . . .

Did you know . . .

Sudden pain in your leg muscles that doesn’t go away, plus leg swelling, could be caused by a blood clot in the deep veins. It is more common after prolonged sitting (car trip, etc), and can run in families.  This condition (DVT) is serious and potentially life threatening, but can be treated readily.  If you develop these symptoms, you should get checked urgently by your doctor.
