The Venefit procedure, previously known as the VNUS Closure Procedure, offers patients an efficient, non-surgical alternative for treating varicose veins to improve the skin’s appearance and to reduce health risks related to large varicose veins. The Venefit Procedure utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat and contract the collagen found inside the vein walls, causing the vein to collapse and seal shut.

Using ultrasound, your physician will position the Venefit catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The tiny radiofrequency powered catheter delivers heat to the vein wall. After sealing the vein, blood flow redirects to healthy veins, thus reducing or eliminating the appearance of enlarged, diseased veins. The Venefit procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes about 30 minutes. Local anesthesia is used for patient comfort. In some cases, this procedure is performed in conjunction with Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.

    How is the Venefit Procedure different from vein stripping?

    Vein stripping is an invasive surgical procedure that requires removing the vein through an incision during surgery. Vein stripping is typically performed in the operating room under full anesthesia. The Venefit Procedure, on the other hand, does not require surgery nor the removal of the vein. Instead, the vein is left in place and is closed using a special catheter inserted through a very small puncture. Because the Venefit Procedure is less invasive, recovery time is shortened from a few weeks on average for vein stripping to about one day for the Venefit Procedure. Additionally, the Venefit Procedure is performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia.
