Powerful Radiofrequency Ablation for Varicose Veins
The ClosureFastTM Radiofrequency Ablation procedure is covered by most insurance plans and is one of the most effective, minimally invasive varicose vein procedures available in the Inland Empire area. Dr. Grewal performs this procedure under local anesthesia and most patients can return to work and other activities the same day. It only takes about 30 minutes to an hour in our office and continues to be an attractive alternative to traditional vein stripping surgery.
How is the ClosureFastTM Procedure Performed?
Since damaged valves cannot be repaired, the only way to restore proper circulation is to re-route blood flow to healthier veins. This is the goal of the ClosureFastTM Procedure. It involves breaking down and closing the diseased veins by firing radio frequency energy directly into the vein.
The procedure itself takes about two minutes but most patients spend between 60 and 90 minutes at the office for pre- and post-treatment procedures.
We begin by numbing the areas of the vein that will be treated and then inserting a small catheter, under ultrasound, into the vein. This process is relatively painless and most patients do not even feel a thing. We will fire the laser to collapse the vein valve and the damaged vein will be absorbed by the body. Once fully absorbed, blood will be rerouted to healthy veins.
What are the Results with the ClosureFastTM Procedure?
Most patients report minimal bruising and a fast recovery after the ClosureFastTM Procedure. Your will need to wear a compression stocking no the vein overnight and can resume regular activities immediately after treatment. Results of a study from an international multi-center study show that 93% of treated veins remained closed three years after treatment with ClosureFastTM.
The ClosureFastTM Procedure is now available exclusively through Empire Vein Specialists for the treatment of varicose veins.
