Dr. Fattahi is the first physician to introduce this innovative method which according to his works has a great success rate in treatment of different varicose veins, while reducing the rate of complications associated with common foam sclerotherapy. Dr. Fattahi's Foam-Washout method focuses on getting the best effect from injected foam by sclerosing targeted varicose vein, while removing all or most of the foam from the treated vein few seconds after the injection. Thus, potentially lowering the risk of complications such as; deep vein thrombosis, neurological and visual disturbance, and migraine headaches. Being the inventor of this technique, naturally Dr. Fattahi is the most experienced physician in the world applying foam washout sclerotherapy for in-office treatment of varicose veins.
