Vein Surgery and Twilight Anesthetic

Radiofrequency Closure is an FDA approved procedure performed at the Reno Vein Clinic with exceptional results. This same day surgery takes less than two hours and is usually performed under “twilight anesthesia” or minimal I.V. sedation and local anesthesia. In twilight anesthesia, the patient is comfortable and does not experience pain. The anesthesia is administered through an IV to make a patient sleepy and calm during a procedure. The patient is typically awake, but groggy during the procedure.

Unlike Radiofrequency Closure, archaic vein stripping requires unnecessary general anesthetic, pain and bruising and extended down time. Schedule an appointment with the doctors at the Reno Vein Clinic to discuss your treatment options further. Visit or call (775) 329-3100 to learn more about varicose veins and the treatment options available.
