Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that treats venous disease by introducing a tiny ultrasound guided catheter through the opening in the skin. Local anesthetic provides comfort with little to no pain and allows for the patient to have an outpatient experience. The catheter emits small amounts of heated radiofrequency energy into the vessel causing the vein to collapse. Once the diseased vessel is no longer open, blood will find an alternative pathway to healthy veins. This technique has many advantages: it can be performed in a doctor’s office, it has up to a 98 percent success rate, it takes less than an hour to complete, it provides immediate relief of symptoms, the patient can return to regular activities almost immediately, and there are no scars.
Sclerotherapy is the treatment of small spider-like veins by injecting a chemical agent into the vein that causes it to deconstruct and collapse. This procedure can be performed in a doctor's office with little to no down-time and only minimal discomfort and a small possibility of bruising.
Stab Phlebectomy is a treatment option for varicose veins that can be performed in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia. It consists of tiny incisions are made over the larger portion of vein allowing for that section of the diseased vessel to be removed
