Introduction to Radiofrequency Closure

When doctors use the term “minimally-invasive”, people who are living with varicose veins may wonder what exactly that really means. For a long time, the only treatment available to treat varicose veins was vein stripping, which was often very uncomfortable and involved a long recovery process.

Gone are those days! New technologies are always developing and Reno Vein Clinic stays on the cutting edge of treatment options. The doctors at the Reno Vein Clinic use the RadioFrequency ClosureFast procedure which is considered minimally invasive. A patented radiofrequency catheter that is inserted into the vein and radio frequency energy is applied to heat the vein, causing it to collapse and seal shut. The body naturally re-directs the flow of blood into the surrounding healthy veins.

This procedure also has a minimal recovery time, is less painful and has fewer complications than alternative procedures. With the revolutionary FDA-approved Radiofrequency Closure procedure, the patient is usually back to doing their favorite activities within a couple of days.

The doctors at the Reno Vein Clinic are dedicated solely to the treatment and correction of vein disorders. The facility was the first west of the Mississippi to perform Radiofrequency Closure. The Doctors have refined the techniques over the last 10 years so the procedure can be performed on a walk-in, walk-out basis under IV sedation at the on-site State Licensed and AAAHC accredited surgery center.
