saphenous vein ablation
Looking for the top vein specialist in NC for minimally-invasive treatment options? Look no further than Novant Health Vein Specialists, where our experienced team performs outpatient procedures using ultrasound guidance for a variety of vein-related conditions.
During the procedure, the surgeon applies local anesthetic to the affected vein before inserting a thin catheter into the varicose veins and guiding it up the great saphenous vein in the thigh. Then, laser or radiofrequency energy is applied to the inside of the vein, heating it and sealing it closed. By closing the great saphenous vein, the twisted and varicosed branch veins, which are close to the skin, shrink and improve in appearance.
Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over to carry blood from the leg, re-establishing normal flow. This results in improved blood circulation and reduced pain, swelling, and discomfort.
At Novant Health Vein Specialists, our top vein specialist in NC utilizes the most advanced technology and techniques available to provide the best possible outcome for our patients.
