For years, stripping the vein surgically was the treatment used to remove varicose veins. Thanks to technological advancements, we now have a less invasive method to achieve better results.
Dr. Haraway performs Endovenous Thermal Ablation by inserting a small catheter into the damaged vein through a needle. With ultrasound guided visualization, thermal heat from the catheter will seal the vein shut from the inside. After the procedure is finished, you will wear a compression stocking for two weeks. There is little to no down time, and you are encouraged to walk right after the procedure.
