Closure

Venous Closure is a minimally invasive treatment with less pain and less bruising for varicose veins. The diseased veins are closed by inserting a small catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall with radio frequency. The heat causes the vein wall’s collagen to shrink and the vein to close. The blood is rerouted to healthy veins and the vein is sealed.

  • Why is Venous Closure Beneficial?
    • Relief from painful varicose veins
    • No pulling of the diseased vein
    • No need for groin surgery
    • No need of general anesthesia.
    • No hospital time required
    • Better blood circulation
    • No downtime
    • Relatively pain free
  • How long does the procedure take?
    • The procedure takes about 45-60 minutes.
  • Is the procedure painful?
    • There is little to no pain during this procedure. Dr. Navarro will give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
  • How long does recovery take?
    • Recovery doesn’t take long because it is such a minimally invasive procedure, you should be walking and resuming normal activity immediately.
  • Are there risks involved with this procedure?
    • The risks for this procedure are minimal, you may experience Phlebitis which is redness and soreness of the skin but it is very mild in nature and can be alleviated with over the counter medications. Dr. Navarro will review any potential dangers in detail at your consultation and answer any questions you may have.
