    Are Varicose Veins Preventing You From Showing Some Leg?

    Jun 21 2017

    If you’re thinking about varicose vein surgery, you should know about endovenous ablation. It’s a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure meant for people whose varicose veins are accompanied by pain, fatigue and/or swelling in their ankles or legs.

    Endovenous ablation isn’t meant for people whose concerns are limited to how their legs look. It’s meant for people who are concerned about how their legs feel too. At MIR, nationally-recognized interventional radiologists perform endovenous ablations.

     

    Benefits of this image-guided procedure include:

    • No stitches or scars
    • A quick return to normal activity (usually 24 hours)
    • Fewer complications and less pain than standard surgery
    • Reduced chance for formation of ulcers
    • Coverage by most insurers for symptomatic patients
