This patient saw us for the first time in April of 2020, what a difference 9 months can make!
We performed Radiofrequency Ablation also known as a closure on this patient. RFA is a safe and effective treatment for venous reflux. It is the modern replacement for vein stripping. Patients are able to resume normal activities as soon as they feel up to it, usually later that day or the next. An ultrasound does need to be completed in a few days to make sure the vein has properly closed and no deep vein clots are present.
If you have symptoms in your legs such as restlessness, itching, burning, or cramping visit veinscarolina.com to schedule an appointment. Spring is right around the corner and treatment results can make all of the difference!
