Treating Varicose Veins & Venous Insufficiency
What is Vein Ablation?
Vein Ablation is a minimally invasive and highly effective procedure that uses image-guided radiofrequency or laser energy to recirculate blood flow and reduce the pressure and stress away from abnormal veins. Once faulty veins are ablated, healthy veins are then able to function in their place. Endovenous Ablation treatment boasts a 98% success rate in treating varicose veins and venous insufficiency and does not require General Anesthesia or a hospital stay.
Treatment results in improved circulation in the legs and helps alleviate the common symptoms associated with Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency, such as:
• Restless Legs
• Cramping (often misdiagnosed as dehydration)
Endovenous Ablation results in fewer complications than standard venous surgery, and any complications that do arise, are most often very minor and short-lived.
Treating Varicose Veins with Vein Ablation
All Endovenous Ablation treatments treat Venous Insufficiency in the legs. However, there are a few specific veins that require treatment more frequently than others. One of the most popular targets for Vein Ablation is the Great Saphenous Vein (GSV), which is located on the inside of the thigh and reaches from the groin all the way down to the ankle. Other popular targets for vein ablation include the Small Saphenous Vein (SSV), which lie in the back of the leg near the calf muscles, and the Accessory Veins, which are located throughout the legs.

How Does Vein Ablation Work?
Endovenous Ablation works by viewing the vein via an Ultrasound, and then directing radiofrequency to that vein through a catheter that has been inserted into the vein via a small opening, similar to an IV. Heat generated by the radiofrequency energy allows the blood to be recirculated through healthy veins. Eventually, the damaged vein shrinks—thereby eliminating the problem vein and allowing blood flow to redirect towards healthier veins. This procedure takes about 30 minutes and eliminates the problem veins using a relatively simple needle puncture covered by a bandage.
**When treating multiple veins, several sessions may be required.
