"True, it's hard to find such a professional office (everyone working there), but combine that with the calm, compassionate treatment and you have one in a million! I am on more third round of vein treatment, and this experience stands out by leaps and bounds. But most meaningful to me was when I went in with an injury that involved my veins and more. Dr. Brennig was very thorough and methodical in the treatment, which will result in a more complete healing! He is what a doctor should be...and his office is what an office should be!"- C.D. / Google / Dec 06, 2019
"Dr. Brenning is awesome, and the work he does is life-changing! I've suffered from vericose veins for years and never took care of them because I thought that was being vain. Then the pain and discomfort got so bad that I sought out treatment. Dr. Brennig taught me why I was having the pain and swelling and put me on a treatment plan to relief me from all of it! After my first treatment, I felt better almost instantly. It was so worth it!! And the cosmetic benefits for me were just a side-benefit, but those are nice too. I recently bought shorts for the first time in years! I would recommend Dr. Brenning to anyone suffering from vericose veins... but more importantly, I'd recommend him to those folks that are not yet suffering and his treatments can help you avoid future pain."- L.C. / Google / Oct 03, 2019
If you are allergic to lidocaine, a local anesthetic, you may be a better candidate for ClariVein. All patients receive a comprehensive initial evaluation and treatments directly from Dr. Brennig, rather than a nurse or an associate. As a board-certified vascular surgeon with years of experience successfully treating all types of vein problems, you can be assured to receive a premium level of care. In order for Dr. Brennig to discern whether or not you are a candidate for ClariVein, an evaluation and examination (including an ultrasound) must be performed on the affected veins. Your detailed treatment plan will then be developed based on those findings for your benefit and personalized care.
At the Austin Vein Institute, you will be escorted to one of our vein therapy rooms to have your ClariVein procedure. Certified to use the ClariVein, Dr. Brennig will be performing the insertion of the infusion catheter. A bonus feature of the ClariVein procedure is that it is a technique for axial vein ablation that does not require the use of local anesthetic (lidocaine). A 360° rotating, mechanical ablation tip combined with a sclerotherapy infusion micro-catheter will ablate your varicose veins. Once the vein has been properly treated, Dr. Brennig will take out the catheter and bandage the skin.
Your recovery time after a ClariVein procedure will be dependent on your vein situation. Healing varicose veins take time, but your skin should continually improve as days pass. Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions you will need to follow for optimal outcomes.
