Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure.  It is a treatment device that is placed into a diseased vein under ultrasound guidance through a small opening in the skin.  The small device delivers heat to the vein wall, causing it to shrink and seal closed.  Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will reroute itself to other healthy veins.

Venous reflux disease is a progressive medical condition that if left untreated, will likely worsen over time and develop into a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  CVI leads to more serious outcomes such as poor healing wounds, permanent skin damage, and an increased risk of deep blood clot. 

  • The procedure takes about 20-40 minutes. 
  • The procedure is almost always a permanent fix for the diseased veins being treated. 
  • The number of treatments needed depends on the severity and number of veins that are diseased. 

Studies have shown:

  • Patients get relief/improvement of symptoms after 2 days 
  • Proven results with positive patient outcomes and experience 
  • Rapid recovery with patients resuming normal activities within a few days
