Ablation therapy (laser, radiofrequency)

  • A catheter is inserted in a vein, which closes the vein after delivering heat or laser treatment to the vein wall

  • Both treatments are equally effective

  • Treatments are individualized based upon the patient’s clinical scenario

Why treat varicose veins and venous disease?

  • Treatment is administered to relieve symptoms, improve pooling of venous blood in the legs, and restore health and appearance to the legs.

  • Treating varicose veins and venous reflux often prevents more advanced problems:

    • Profuse venous bleeding

    • Permanent skin discoloration

    • Recurrent superficial venous thrombosis

    • Recurrence of varicose veins and spider veins

    • Permanent skin ulceration

    • Inability to perform work-related duties and/or normal day activities

  •  

Is treatment painful?

  • Most treatments are performed using local anesthesia in the office

  • Post procedure pain medication is rarely necessary

  • Twilight sedation (conscious sedation) or general anesthesia may be provided for certain procedures

How quickly can I resume activities?

  • Normal daily activities may be resumed the same day for ablation and sclerotherapy treatment

  • Light exercise can be resumed in 3 days, and strenuous exercise in 14 days

  • In certain circumstances, disability may be warranted to allow for full recovery when extensive treatment is needed

  • The tiny incisions of ambulatory micro-phlebectomy heal over a few weeks.

  • Spider veins can take several weeks to months to fade away.

How quickly will I notice improvement?

  • Most symptoms resolve shortly after treatment or within a few days to weeks

  • Persistent or recurrent symptoms may be attributable to residual and/or progressive venous disease

  • A follow-up plan is provided for long-term monitoring and quality care
