Yes it is possible, but prior to any treatment you must have ultrasound confirmation that the DVT has resolved.

Yes, sometimes a vein procedure is helpful to deal with venous insufficiency after a previous DVT. The treating physician needs to look very carefully at the anatomy and the flow in the various veins of the leg before making a decision to treat. In some cases, it is best not to remove or ablate a vein which may be carrying flow around an obstructed deep vein after DVT.

Individuals with prior DVT can undergo varicose vein surgery or, preferably, laser ablation provided they first have a venous ultrasound to document the status of both their deep and superficial systems. If the deep system is open or well collaterialized, then treating the superficial system can be done safely.
