Am I a Good Candidate for Vein Ablation?
If you suffer with enlarged, twisted veins that are the hallmark of underlying vein disease, you are not only a candidate, but should seek immediate treatment in order to prevent further damage to your vascular system. Any patient with symptoms of heaviness, aching, Restless Leg Syndrome, leg swelling or varicose vein will get significant relief with proper vein treatment. Untreated vein disease can lead to further health concerns like those above which require much more intense medical attention.
What is an EVRF Treatment Like?
EVRF for vein ablation was originally developed around 1999. As the procedure has matured, it has become extremely effective and the treatment of choice for refluxing leg veins. Dr. Verebelyi has done several thousand of these treatments. He focuses on not only ensuring the procedure is as safe and effective as possible but also making sure all of our patients are incredibly comfortable both during and after procedures. The micro puncture to place the tiny catheter is so small it requires only a tiny bandage to close. The total treatment time is only about thirty minutes to an hour and patients are able to do mild exercise the same day. Patients may experience some mild swelling afterwards but should only expect minimal discomfort that can easily be controlled with Ibuprofen.
Is There Any Downtime with These Vein Treatments?
You’ll need to wear a compression bandage for a few days following your treatment, but you will be up and walking the same day. Light activity is encouraged the day of your procedure and may be increased each day following the treatment.
What Results Can I Expect?
Vein ablation is highly successful, with Dr. Verebelyi’s patients experiencing a success rate of 98% or better, even after four years. The other good news is that many symptoms begin to improve within a few days of the procedure.
Dr. Verebelyi is one of the most highly trained vascular physicians in the country, and he is a fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS). Colorado Skin & Vein is an ASLMS preceptor site, and Dr. Verebelyi has trained many of the field’s top physicians.
