Varicose Vein Treatment

Do you struggle with varicose veins? Over 30 million people in the United States suffer from symptomatic venous insufficiency, the underlying cause of varicose veins. Varicose veins are often mistakenly thought to be only a cosmetic condition when, in fact, they are usually a symptom of this disease.  This condition progressively damages the valves of the saphenous vein and cosmetically disfigures the leg.

The ClosureFast Procedure featuring the ClosureFAST Catheter has been the subject of an international multi-center trial.  This trial recently demonstrated a procedural efficacy of over 95% at the two-year follow up.  In another international multi-center study, the RECOVERY Trial showed that when compared to laser treatment, the Closure procedure has significantly less patient pain and bruising with fewer adverse events than laser.  The ClosureFAST Catheter represents the latest advancement in RF Technology from Medtronic, a company built on a strong foundation of clinical data and patient-centric approaches to treating venous disease.   

More than 500,000 patients have been treated with the ClosureFast procedure.  The procedure is also covered by most health insurance companies, which makes it an appealing option for many patients.
