How is Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation Performed?

During the procedure:

  1. Your doctor will numb the treatment area with local anesthesia.
  2. A small incision is made, and a thin catheter with a radiofrequency electrode is inserted into the affected vein.
  3. The electrode delivers heat energy, causing the vein to collapse and seal shut.
  4. The procedure typically takes about an hour and is performed in-office.

After the procedure:

  • You may experience mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling, which usually subsides within a few days.
  • Normal activities can usually be resumed immediately, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a short period.
