Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation
Endovenous thermal ablation is a minimally invasive treatment that involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube called a catheter into a refluxing or backwards-flowing vein to seal it shut using heat. Blood is then re-routed into normal, healthy veins alleviating reflux symptoms. Over time the treated vein shrinks and is absorbed by the body. Compared with surgical options like ligation and vein stripping, endovenous ablation results in less pain and quicker recovery time.
In sclerotherapy, a tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. Over a short time, in response to the irritation, the vein closes and is reabsorbed. The blood from the closed vein is routed to properly working veins, restoring correct circulation and improving overall appearance.
Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to remove unsightly or painful bulging leg veins. This is the recommended treatment for large surface varicose veins. Removal of these unsightly, painful veins with microphlebectomy often results in quicker healing, less pain, and a better cosmetic result than would occur without this treatment. Performed through tiny nicks in the skin, microphlebectomy is far less invasive than surgical stripping. Recovery is more rapid, and most patients do not need to interrupt regular activity after microphlebectomy.
