VENCLOSE Radiofrequency Ablation Procedure
Restores healthy blood flow by closing diseased veins
The VENCLOSE procedure is the latest heat-based treatment option for chronic venous insufficiency, a common cause of varicose veins.
Benefits of the VENCLOSE procedure:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Smaller catheter entry site
- Proven technology
To begin the procedure, Dr. Alpern will insert a small catheter into the diseased vein. The catheter will deliver heat to shrink and close the diseased vein. Your blood flow will naturally reroute to nearby healthy veins. Once treatment is completed, Dr. Alpern will apply a bandage and may recommend compression to help the healing.
