Venous Ablation
Therapy in Michigan

Varicose Vein Treatment at Suburban Vein Center

At Suburban Vein Center, our Michigan vein doctor Dr. Zmily provides various varicose vein treatment options. If you’re suffering from varicose veins, visit one of our four Michigan vein clinic locations to undergo a consultation. Dr. Zmily will evaluate your case and determine which treatment option will work best based on the severity of your varicose veins. 

One of the most commonly used treatments is venous ablation therapy, also referred to as endovenous ablation, as it’s a minimally invasive procedure.

What Is Endovenous Ablation?

Endovenous ablation uses radiofrequency energy to heat enlarged veins and cause them to collapse and close. Venous ablation is an alternative to vein stripping, a surgical procedure traditionally performed to remove the main vein in the leg. Ablation is safe, minimally invasive, and leaves virtually no scars. 

The introduction of endovenous ablation has given patients a viable option for a cosmetically superior procedure that doesn’t leave visible scars. It’s commonly utilized for the treatment of varicose veins, but can also be used for patients suffering from leg pain and other discomfort related to varicose veins or other venous conditions.

The Benefits of Venous Ablation Therapy

Using venous ablation therapy to treat varicose veins provides patients with numerous benefits, such as:

  • No surgical incision is required — only a slight nick in the skin that won’t need stitches
  • When compared to traditional vein stripping, ablation is more effective, has fewer complications, and less pain
  • Safe and minimally invasive
  • Less chance of scarring after the procedure
  • Symptom relief
  • Resume normal activities immediately after the procedure
  • In most cases, venous ablation results in the permanent removal of varicose veins because it effectively removes the refluxing source of the disease

The Endovenous Ablation Procedure

The procedure is done by inserting a thin catheter into the vein to treat it with radiofrequency energy or a laser. To ensure that the laser is targeting the entire length of the vein, the physician performing the procedure uses an ultrasound monitor to track its path and visualize the veins. Once the vein’s wall is “injured” by the laser or radiofrequency electrode, it will shrink and eventually turn into scar tissue.

This safe procedure is useful for addressing the symptoms of varicose veins, and the cosmetic corners of patients suffering from the disease.
