Improve your vein health

Varicose veins occur when the valves within the veins, responsible for regulating blood flow, become weak or damaged. These enlarged, twisted veins often appear blue or dark purple beneath the skin's surface. Common symptoms of varicose veins include aching or throbbing pain, especially after prolonged periods of standing or sitting. You may also experience heaviness, swelling, and cramping in the legs. While generally not a severe medical condition, varicose veins can cause discomfort and affect your quality of life, making their management and treatment essential for overall well-being.

An innovative and effective solution for varicose veins

Are you experiencing symptoms such as bulging veins, swelling, or aching in your legs? If so, you might be a candidate for radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins. If you're seeking a minimally invasive solution with reduced pain, shorter recovery times, and improved aesthetic outcomes, radiofrequency ablation might be the right choice for you. Reach out to Surgical Associates to learn more about how this advanced technique can address your specific venous concerns and enhance your overall vein health.

What is the radiofrequency ablation procedure like?

Preparing for radiofrequency ablation at Surgical Associates involves a comprehensive consultation where our specialists assess your vein health. Before the procedure, our team may advise you to avoid certain medications and to wear loose, comfortable clothing. We typically perform radiofrequency ablation as an outpatient procedure. We will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the targeted vein. We will insert a catheter into the vein, guided by ultrasound. Applying radiofrequency energy, we will then heat and seal the problematic vein. The procedure is precise and minimally invasive, and our patients generally tolerate it well.

Is the recovery process long?

After radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins, it is expected that slight discomfort will be experienced during the recovery process. You can expect to resume normal activities within a day or two. Post-procedure care may involve wearing compression stockings to support the healing process and enhance circulation. While mild bruising or swelling may occur, these effects are generally temporary. The short downtime associated with radiofrequency ablation makes it an attractive option for those seeking efficient and minimally disruptive solutions for varicose veins. Our team at Surgical Associates prioritizes your comfort throughout the entire process.
