Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
How does RFA work?
During radiofrequency ablation, the vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface. The incision serves as an entry point for the catheter, which is driven under ultrasound guidance into the diseased vein. Once it’s lodged in place, the vein doctor generates radiofrequency waves to destroy the diseased vein, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier leg veins.
Radiofrequency ablation is an extremely safe and effective treatment with a 98% success rate. It concludes within 30 to 60 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities. Most insurance providers cover radiofrequency ablation, especially if you have vein disease.
RFA: pain and discomfort
RFA: aftercare and recovery
Radiofrequency ablation is the safest and most effective treatment for chronic venous insufficiency, the dangerous medical condition responsible for most vascular problems. If left untreated, vein disease continues progressing until you experience leg ulcers, skin discoloration, leg heaviness, varicose veins, frequent leg cramps, and deep vein thrombosis.
