Service Description

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive medical condition leading to leg swelling, discomfort or burning and cause both varicose veins and chronic skin changes, including skin discoloration, dryness, oozing and even ulcers. The Venefit™ procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to effectively treat patients suffering from varicose veins or Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). A vein specialist inserts a catheter into a diseased vein to provide consistent and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood is then naturally redirected to healthy veins. The 2009 RECOVERY Study confirms that patients experience less bruising and pain, and fewer complications with the Covidien ClosureFast™ Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter in comparison to 980 nm laser ablation. The Venefit procedure also results in little to no scarring and is generally performed using local anesthesia in the vein specialist's office.
