Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) is a procedure that uses radio frequency energy to eliminate saphenous veins and other large varicosities.  The ease and success of this treatment make it a preferred method of therapy for large varicose veins.

It proves to have a high success rate and few complications. The procedure is performed by a specialized Interventional Radiologist.

With RFA, there is no need for hospitalization, general anaesthesia or stitches. Following the procedure, patients can walk out of the office and resume most normal daily activities.
