Varicose Vein Ablation

Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatments

Varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic concern for women and men — they may also hurt and make life uncomfortable. Get relief for the pain and discomfort through non-surgical treatment options.

Our minimally invasive varicose vein ablation treatment technologies, using only local anesthesia, seal off the diseased varicose vein and direct blood flow to nearby healthy veins which reduces the swelling.

Radiofrequency ablation (VNUS Closure) - Using ultrasound technology, a small, radiofrequency-powered catheter is guided into the affected vein through a small puncture in the skin. The catheter delivers short pulses of heat to the walls of the vein, causing the collagen in the vein walls to shrink. The vein eventually collapses and seals shut.

VenaSeal™ Closure System - A specially-formulated medical adhesive is delivered along the diseased vein.

Varithena® - A small amount of foam is injected into the diseased vein, causing it to collapse.

Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) - A small laser fiber delivers heat to collapse and seal the vein.

These treatments are performed in an outpatient setting, meaning you can go home shortly after, and in many cases, are covered in part or in full by insurance. The first step to learning about your treatment options is to schedule an appointment to speak with our experts at Emory Vein Center.
