Discover the Many Benefits of Endovenous Ablation for Vein Pain

If you’ve been reading up on endovenous ablation, then you know it offers a much less invasive, but very effective alternative to conventional stripping surgery to get rid of your ugly and painful varicose veins. Best of all, you can have your endovenous ablation procedure performed at Vein Specialists by one of the leading vein experts in the United States, Dr. Joseph Magnant.

Here’s why the endovenous ablation procedure is so popular:

  • No Incisions and Minimal Scarring
  • Minimal to No Pain, Outpatient Procedure under Local Anesthesia
  • Highly Effective in Treating the Underlying cause of Varicose Veins

In other words, no more painful vein stripping! Vein treatments have changed dramatically in the past 15-20 years. So, if you’re seeking a faster, easier and minimally invasive alternative to the stripping procedure of the years past, then endovenous ablation may just be the ideal vein treatment for you.

How Endovenous Ablation Works

At Vein Specialists, we offer the very latest treatment in endovenous ablation performed in the convenience of our office using ultrasound guidance and under local anesthesia. The endovenous procedure seals leaking veins with heat – rather than stripping the veins out of the leg. This takes place using either radiofrequency energy or LASER energy delivered via a thin catheter.

After the leaking vein is sealed, abnormal high venous pressure is returned to normal and other healthy veins carry the blood back to the heart.

What to Expect After Endovenous Ablation

After endovenous ablation, some varicose veins will completely disappear. In other more severe cases, it may be necessary to remove the residual bulging veins either in conjunction with endovenous ablation or at a subsequent procedure. This can be easily accomplished through tiny incisions again in an outpatient office setting.

However, even patients with advanced venous disease can be treated with endovenous ablation and can return to normal activity almost immediately. The long-term success of endovenous ablation exceeds 95%.
