Chronic Venous Insufficiency

The Venefit™ procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency in which a vein specialist inserts a catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally re-routes to healthy veins.

A catheter is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision below the knee. The catheter is heated by radiofrequency energy which causes the vessel to collapse. The physician withdraws the catheter, treating each segment until the entire length of the vein has been sealed. 

Unlike painful vein stripping surgery or laser ablation, the catheter delivers uniform, consistent heat to each segment. As a result, the Venefit™ procedure causes less bruising and allows for more rapid patient relief and recovery. The Venefit™ procedure is performed in our office and is covered by most health insurance plans.

Venefit™ is a medical procedure and is not designed to address spider veins or cosmetic issues. However, the successful treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency using the Venefit™ procedure can produce cosmetic improvements. RSS
