Are you interested in minimally invasive varicose vein treatment? Endovenous ablation is one of the most effective options for removing painful or unattractive varicose veins. Our experienced interventional physicians at Ospina Medical offer minimally invasive endovenous ablation for varicose vein removal at our clinic in Manhattan.
Varicose veins occur when blood leaks or pools inside the vein, causing it to enlarge and swell. Varicose veins are most common in the legs – one-way valves in the veins are meant to return the blood to the heart. When the veins weaken or leak, varicose veins form. Patients with varicose veins may experience pain, fatigue, discolorations and swelling in the area. For relief from symptoms, endovenous ablation can effectively treat varicose veins without invasive surgery.
Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatment
Endovenous ablation is performed as an outpatient procedure to remove or dissolve varicose veins. The procedure involves using imaging to identify the exact vein its position before using heat to close and disable the varicose vein. Our interventional radiologist uses advanced imaging to visualize the vein, and local anesthesia is injected to numb the area. A tiny incision is used to access the interior of the vein to insert a small catheter that delivers thermal heat. The heat collapses the vein – blood is redirected to other veins and the treated vein shrinks and is reduced to scar tissue.
For patients, endovenous ablation is usually an outpatient procedure with very little discomfort. The incision is so small that the scar is virtually invisible once it heals.
