Radio-frequency Ablation Vancouver, WA

Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatment

Radio-frequency ablation, also known as endovenous ablation, is a procedure that uses radio frequency to close up varicose veins and prevent blood flow into them. When blood can’t flow into varicose veins, it will reroute to healthier veins that can effectively carry it back to the heart. This is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that does not leave scars. Your doctor might recommend this treatment if you have varicose veins that have not responded to less-invasive treatments.

Radio-frequency ablation is usually performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can arrive for your appointment and return home the same day. An overnight hospital stay is not required.

How Does Radio-frequency Ablation Work?

This procedure has both cosmetic and medical benefits. Varicose veins have a bulging, knotted appearance that is visible on the surface of the skin. This procedure can both remove the unsightly veins and prevent blood from flowing through the damaged passageways.

Endovenous ablation has a very high success rate and very low complication risks. The more common, but still rare, side effects include mild nerve damage and inflammation that usually goes away within a few days.
