Varicose Vein Treatment - VNUS - Both Legs at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital

Removal of varicose veins using VNUS Closure involves a thin catheter being inserted into the vein through a small opening through which radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and transfer blood from the legs. This is usually performed under local anaesthetic and the patiennt can normally walk out of the medical centre within 2 or 3 hours.
