Varicose Vein Treatments

Compression Stockings

There are a few conservative treatments that can improve symptoms. The most effective is compression stockings. These stockings will apply a specific amount of pressure to your legs, improving the blood flow in your veins from your feet back to your heart. Many patients find very good symptomatic relief when they wear compression stockings. The other conservative treatments include elevating your feet at the end of the day and walking.

Radio Ablation RFA (ClosureFast™)

The vein is accessed percutaneously through a small incision in the ankle. A catheter is introduced into the vein through this small incision. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and empty blood from your legs. As normal return flow is reestablished, your symptoms should improve considerably.


Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure done in the office to remove small varicose veins. This procedure is typically only necessary if the veins are not amenable to either endovenous ablation or sclerotherapy. The varicose vein may be in a location that is not treatable by endovenous ablation, and sometimes the vein is too large to be treated with just sclerotherapy.

This procedure is performed in the office, using local anesthesia. Small incisions are made in the area of the vein, and then a special hook tool is used to remove the vein. The incision is closed and bandages are applied.
