Venous reflux affects more than 30 million Americans. It occurs when valves in the vein of the lower leg no longer function properly. This allows blood to flow backward, or reflux, resulting in enlarged veins known as varicose veins.
“Varicose veins that are left untreated may have symptoms that progress into pain, swelling, skin damage and ulcerations,” said Dr. Tidwell. “The VenaSeal Closure System,” he continued, “is a new and innovative treatment option that improves blood flow by closing the diseased vein using a medical adhesive.”
Because this treatment takes less time than other varicose vein treatment methods, patients can resume their day in no time. Medicus patients will appreciate that with this new procedure, the use of compression stockings is not required.
Patients treated with the VenaSeal™ closure system often have minimal bruising, and can return to their normal routine immediately following treatment.

Dr. Tidwell founded Medicus Vein Care in Jupiter, Florida in 2005 to offer the best diagnosis, care and treatment for spider veins and varicose veins in the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast areas. His patients attribute his ability to accurately diagnose and treat venous disease to his expertise in ultrasound technology, and years of experience in minimally-invasive vascular treatments.
