Radiofrequency Ablation For Varicose Veins
Radiofrequency vein ablation is a procedure that uses thermal heat to minimize varicose veins by closing affected areas. The experienced medical team at Comprehensive Vein Care provides this treatment as an outpatient procedure in a comfortable, professional environment. Once the treatment is done, patients can return immediately to their lifestyle with little to no discomfort or recovery time.
What’s Involved In The Treatment?
First, the doctor maps out areas of veins that need addressing based on ultrasound images. Once the procedure is planned, local anesthetic is used to numb affected areas and a radiofrequency fiber is inserted through a tiny pinhole in the skin. That fiber is used to heat the areas where therapy is required. You typically won’t feel anything during the procedure due to the local anesthesia and the skill of our providers.
Our dedicated team has performed many of these procedures, and patients tend to feel immediate relief. The procedure itself has an impressive 98 percent success rate overall, and patients like that it doesn’t require general anesthesia.
