If you are suffering from symptomatic varicose veins, there is a solution. At the Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, we offer a variety of vein disease treatment options, including radiofrequency ablation. VNUS Closure, also known as endovenous radiofrequency ablation or occlusion, is performed in the physician’s office with the assistance of ultrasound and the use of local anesthetic. It works quickly to treat varicose veins and its symptoms.
The basis of the procedure involves the insertion of a small VNUS ClosureFAST™ catheter into the problematic vein. The catheter delivers a controlled amount of heat to the vein wall, causing it to seal shut. The body automatically reroutes blood to healthier vessels after the vein is closed. Following your treatment, a simple bandage is used to cover the injection site. Your leg may be wrapped to provide additional compression. Recovery is quick and mild. Most patients are able to resume their regular activities within a day, though your doctor will likely advise you to avoid strenuous activities and extended standing for a week.
Don’t spend another day suffering from your varicose veins. Endovenous radiofrequency ablation vein treatment is right here at the Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center, and many insurance providers cover it.
