Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency (RF) Ablation

* formely known as VNUS Closure

The Venefit procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound, Dr. Morgan will position the catheter into the varicose vein through a small opening in the skin. Local anesthesia is given prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort. The tiny catherter powered by radiofrequency energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As heat is delivered, the varicose vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed. Once the varicose vein is closed, blood is re-routed to the other healthy veins.
