Varicose Vein Treatment - Radiofrequency Ablation for Varicose Veins - One Leg at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital

Varicose veins occur due to the weakening of valves in the veins, this results in blood pooling in the legs and they can become enlarged or varicose. Ablation uses heat generated by radiofrequency or laser energy to seal off the damaged vessels, preventing blood pooling in them, instead travelling through healthy alternate pathways. The procedure is minimally invasive, often done as an outpatient procedure, and requires only a local anaesthetic.
