St. Luke's Clinic – VeinCare: Meridian

Dr. Michael Tullis, a board certified vascular and general surgeon, focuses on professional evaluation, consultation, and treatment for varicose veins, complex venous disorders, and related complications. This includes a highly-individualized treatment plan, managed by Dr. Tullis start to finish, based on the underlying cause of the problem, your symptoms, and your goals. 

Treatment options include endovenous radiofrequency ablation, minimally invasive vein removal, compression therapy, VenaSeal™ Closure, and ClariVein® Occlusion.

Innovative Treatment Options

Simple, Fast, and Effective

ClairVein®OC can close a vein using a special catheter with a rotating wire tip that allows for 360-degree application of medicine. Because heat isn't used, there's no need for multiple needle-sticks of anesthesia. ClariVein procedures are often simpler, faster, and less painful than other minimally invasive treatments.

VenaSeal™ uses a medical adhesive to close veins. This eliminates the risk of nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is a risk with certain heat-based procedures. VenaSeal doesn't cause tissue to become swollen and firm, avoiding patient discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks.
