Before & After
Male patient, 59, Vacaville, California
Treatment: Venefit™ Closure Procedure + Sclerotherapy
“My left leg had veins that were protuding with large lumps. I had swelling and sores near my ankle that would not heal, and my legs cramped frequently and itched. I tried elevating my legs and support socks, but nothing worked. My podiatrist (Dr. Kaplan) recommended I go see Dr. Brooks.
Dr. Brooks and the staff at Napa Vascular & Vein Center were kind and very informative. Dr. Brooks diagnosed my condition and explained how the Venefit™ Closure combined with Sclerotherapy would help alleviate my symptoms. My recovery was fast. I returned to work within 2 days. The swelling of my leg, cramping and itchiness has stopped, and the veins no longer protude.
Most importantly, I now go for walks with ease and no discomfort. At the end of a day's work my left leg is not tired. I wear shorts and don’t feel self-conscious. I highly recommend this procedure as it has truly improved the quality of my life!”

Treatment: Sclerotherapy + Sclerotherapy under Ultrasound (SUS)
“I was referred to Dr. Brooks by Dr. Raymond and my condition was purely cosmetic. My mother has varicose veins and after birthing 2 children, mine became very pronounced. I decided “why wait?” they’re not going to get any better!
Dr. Brooks was thorough in his exam and explanation of what he could do and the results I could expect. His staff was friendly, informative and very kind. I am thrilled with my results – I am wearing shorts and skirts for the first time in nearly a decade! My confidence is back and I love how my legs look.”

"My legs were achy, tired and honestly looked really bad – like road maps all over my legs. As they got worse over time, my general practitioner and I new something had to be done, and my general practitioner referred me to Napa Vascular & Vein Center. Dr. Brooks was very patient, listened to me, answered questions and explained things very thoroughly. He was also very realistic on the outcomes, which I appreciated. I get queasy around needles so Dr. Brooks gave me medicine to help me relax, and his staff was very understanding and helpful in making me comfortable.
I am very pleased with the results. My legs are no longer tired and achy, and I wear shorter skirts without feeling self-conscious. I would recommend anyone who is suffering from varicose veins go see Dr. Brooks – it has greatly improved my every day life!"

Treatment: Venefit™ Closure and Sclerotherapy under Ultrasound (SUS)
“My leg was deformed with large surface veins that grew swollen by the end of the day, and very achy in my calf. As a physician, I knew to elevate my legs when possible – and knew that I wanted to avoid the traditional vein stripping procedure. But the symptoms were interfering with my work and life.
My internist recommended that I consult with Dr. Brooks to see what could be done. Dr. Brooks provided me with a careful, detailed explanation of the condition and what he could to to alleviate my symptoms. I noticed that he was very thorough in his evaluation of my leg, as well as his diagnosis and documentation. His manner reassured me that I was in good hands.
Today I am symptom free and back to activities like taking long walks. I also feel more emotionally secure knowing that my leg looks “normal” and matches my other leg.”

Treatment: Venefit™ Closure with Phlebectomy
"The veins in my legs were so painful that it literally exhausted my whole body. I'm used to having a lot of energy and being active – and I had none. The first thing I tried was weight loss – I lost over 40 lbs on a monitored diet and exercise regimen. I felt better about myself, but my legs were still very sore, so my doctor advised seeing a specialist and referred me to Napa Vascular & Vein Center. Dr. Brooks is very cordial, compassionate and a perfectionist in his work… a winning combination in my mind. I had both my legs treated and I am now pain-free. I have all my energy back and my legs look good! I'm so thrilled to be back doing the things I love like riding my bike and taking long walks. I am so happy with Dr. Brooks' care that when my husband needed a vascular surgeon I told his physician that Dr. Brooks is our first choice!"

"I have arthritis in my knees, and my varicose veins were swelling and causing extreme pain. I had to stop going to my aerobics class because I just couldn't stand the pain. I saw Napa Valley Vascular in the newspaper and decided it was time to seek treatment.
Dr. Brooks is such a kind, gentle man and his direct, truthful manner gave me confidence that he was the one that could help me. I had two treatments and the procedure was uncomfortable but not painful. The NVVC staff was lovely – very compassionate which made me feel totally at ease.
The results are terrific! I am back in my aerobics class, doing what I want to do, and I am virtually pain-free. And I went to Hawaii shortly after and actually enjoyed being in my bathing suit on the beach!"
