Through this health news article published in our very own local paper, the Union Tribune, a new procedure concerning treating varicose veins is discussed. 15 years ago, one of the most common ways to treat varicose veins was through a type of surgery called “vascular stripping.” Through this procedure, an incision was made below the vein and then the vein was grasped and removed.
Today’s technology is far less invasive than the vascular stripping procedure of years’ past. Varicose veins and other vein conditions can be addressed through minimally invasive procedures that can treat leg pain and yield more cosmetically appealing results. New laser and radio frequency energy procedures can use heat techniques to close veins. In addition, new medications will be available soon that can also address vein conditions.
New procedures allow patients to return to normal activities almost immediately with few side effects. In addition, new treatments are virtually painless, allowing a patient to be as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process.
