Varicose veins are bulging, large veins that most commonly occur on the legs and feet. They occur when the valves in the veins fail to function correctly, causing blood to flow inefficiently.
Treatment for varicose veins is seldom necessary for health reasons, but if swelling, aching, and painful legs occur, as well as significant discomfort, treatment is possible.
A physical exam will be performed by your doctor to identify varicose veins, which will include a look at your legs while you’re standing to check for swelling. Your doctor could also ask you to explain any leg discomfort or soreness.
You may also require an ultrasound to determine if the valves in your veins are functioning correctly or if a blood clot is present. A technician uses a small hand-held device (transducer) roughly the size of a bar of soap on your skin over the area of your body being evaluated in this noninvasive test. The transducer sends pictures of your legs’ veins to a monitor, where they may be seen by a technician and your doctor.
RF ablation is a very low-invasive treatment for varicose veins, which uses radiofrequency energy to heat the inner surfaces of the targeted veins and causes them to close and become scar tissues. The tissue is absorbed by the body, and the vascular system automatically redirects its blood. This treatment can be done under local anesthesia and is associated with little or no downtime. The majority of patients leave the clinic and return to work the next day. It takes an average of 30-45 minutes for this treatment.
