Radiofrequency ablation, sometimes referred to as Venefit or VNUS Closure, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequencies to heat and seal veins. The sealed off vein eventually disintegrates and disappears. The blood then re-routes to other nearby veins.
Your doctor may order a pre-procedural ultrasound to ensure your suitability for the procedure. The doctor inserts a catheter into the affected vein through a small incision in the groin area. Then, the doctor delivers radiofrequency energy through the catheter into the vein wall. This heats up the vein and makes it seal shut. Radiofrequency ablation can be performed at your local Vein Center in Jackson Heights. The procedure uses a local anesthetic, rather than a general anesthetic used in procedures like vein stripping. The recovery time is relatively short and most healthy patients can return to their daily activities the following day. Since only a small incision is made rather than a complete groin surgery as in vein stripping, the radiofrequency ablation procedure is associated with minimal bruising and pain.

The procedure takes between 45-60 minutes. You can expect to spend around 3 hours at your vein clinic in Jackson Heights. Your Jackson Heights heart doctor may advice you to walk regularly, avoid standing for prolonged periods of time and avoid strenuous activities such as heavy lifting. Most patients notice an improvement in their symptoms within 2 weeks of the procedure.
While radiofrequency ablation is a relatively safe procedure, it is useful to know some of the rare complications. The most serious side effect of radiofrequency ablation is deep vein thrombosis. Other complications include cellulitis/infection, skin burn, mild bruising and/or pain and some loss of blood.
