Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) has replaced surgical stripping as the standard of treatment for vаrісоѕе veins

Preferred Spider and Varicose Vein Treatment

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is the preferred spider and varicose vein treatment option at Vein Specialist Centers to treat vein disease. It is a minimally-invasive solution compared to traditional vein stripping surgery of the past. The procedure addresses the root cause of spider and varicose veins that are symptomatic.

What Does RFA do to the Faulty Vein?

Ablation treats the vein from within by heating thе vein wаll and collapsing the targeted, unhealthy segments. Circulation is then redirected to the other healthy veins within the legs to relieve symptoms and prevent further complications. (RFA) does not require any sedatives or general anesthesia.

Ablation Over “Vein Stripping“

Many patients recall “vein stripping” as being a difficult procedure to endure in which the entire saphenous vein would be removed through large skin incisions. With the current endovenous techniques, there is no need for skin incisions or anesthesia to treat varicose veins.

Done in less than an hour

Vein ablation in our New Jersey and New York offices takes no more than 30 minutes and patients can return to their usual activities right after. Plus, no fasting is required for this popular vein treatment procedure, so you can eat and drink as normal up to the minute of the procedure.

What happens during a Radiofrequency Ablation procedure?

What Happens To the Treated Vein?

The procedure is simple and effectively done in-office. Using ultrasound guidance and a small IV line, a thin catheter is inserted into the target, feeder vein. Once the catheter is accurately positioned, the surrounding area is given a local anesthetic solution (tumescence). The catheter is then activated to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall. The radiofrequency heats and ultimately collapses the diseased vein.

Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is redirected to healthy veins, similar to other techniques. The treated vein is collapsed and eventually absorbed by the body.

  • Sclerotherapy is often performed in conjunction with RF vein ablation to target residual vein disease and cosmetic veins.
