We are committed to providing advanced and effective treatments for venous disorders.

One of our most popular and successful procedures is the VNUS Closure, also known as Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) or Endovenous Radiofrequency Closure (EVRF). This minimally invasive technique is designed to treat varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency with minimal discomfort and excellent results.

What is the VNUS Closure Procedure?

The VNUS Closure procedure is a state-of-the-art treatment for varicose veins that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close off diseased veins. This process, also known as Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), targets the underlying cause of varicose veins—malfunctioning vein valves—by sealing off the affected veins, allowing blood to reroute to healthier veins.

How Does the Procedure Work?

  1. Consultation and Evaluation:
    • The process begins with a comprehensive consultation and evaluation. During this stage, our specialists will perform a detailed ultrasound examination to map the affected veins and determine the best treatment plan.
  2. Preparation:
    • On the day of the procedure, the treatment area is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. The leg is then prepared and sterilized to prevent infection.
  3. Insertion of the Catheter:
    • A small incision is made near the knee or calf, and a thin catheter is inserted into the diseased vein using ultrasound guidance. This ensures precise placement and effectiveness.
  4. Delivery of Radiofrequency Energy:
    • Once the catheter is in place, radiofrequency energy is delivered through the catheter. The heat generated by the radiofrequency energy causes the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. This process is carefully monitored in real-time using ultrasound to ensure accuracy.
  5. Post-Procedure Care:
    • After the vein is sealed, the catheter is removed, and the incision site is bandaged. Compression stockings are applied to help reduce swelling and support healing. Patients are typically able to walk immediately after the procedure and can resume normal activities within a day or two.

Benefits of the VNUS Closure Procedure

The VNUS Closure procedure offers several significant advantages over traditional vein stripping surgery and other treatments:

  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure involves a small incision and causes minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients return to their regular activities within a day or two.
  • Effective Results: The procedure has a high success rate, with many patients experiencing immediate relief from symptoms.
  • Cosmetically Pleasing: The small incision and precise treatment result in minimal scarring and a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
  • Reduced Pain and Discomfort: Compared to traditional surgery, RFA causes less pain and bruising.

Who is a Candidate for VNUS Closure?

Candidates for the VNUS Closure procedure typically include individuals who suffer from:

  • Varicose Veins: Enlarged, twisted veins often visible under the skin.
  • Chronic Venous Insufficiency: A condition where the veins cannot effectively return blood from the legs to the heart, causing swelling, pain, and skin changes.
  • Leg Pain and Swelling: Symptoms associated with malfunctioning vein valves and poor blood circulation.

Our specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if the VNUS Closure procedure is the best treatment option based on your specific condition and medical history.
