Your Varicose Vein Procedure

Dr Olson will perform your diagnosis and procedure in her office. Precise diagnosis is achieved using ultrasound. During your procedure, she will position a very fine catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter, powered by radiofrequency (RF) energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will re-route itself to other healthy veins. You will experience little to no discomfort.

Following the procedure, Dr. Olson may encourage you to take short walks, and to refrain from extended periods of standing and strenuous activities during recovery. The average patient typically resumes normal activities within a day or two.

Compression stockings will be necessary during your treatment
and are available for purchase at the Vein Center for less than retail cost.

For those patients who wish to learn more about the venous system and how it’s proper function is essential to good health, please see Venous Anatomy.
