Varicose Vein Treatment Center at St. Anthony North
If you are suffering from painful varicose veins, St. Anthony North Varicose Vein Treatment Center has a solution. Our comprehensive venous evaluation and vein repair with a minimally invasive treatment option can provide you relief from leg pain and varicose veins.
The VNUS Closure® procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional vein stripping for patients with superficial venous reflux, an underlying cause of varicose veins. St. Anthony North Hospital is pleased to offer this treatment to our patients suffering from symptoms associated with varicose veins.
The VNUS Closure procedure uses a small catheter to seal the vein shut through a single small incision. The patient can usually return to normal activities within a day. Best of all, once a defective saphenous vein is sealed shut or "occluded," blood flow immediately diverts to healthy veins. Like any interventional procedure, the VNUS Closure procedure involves risks and potential complications. An evaluation can determine if you are a candidate for varicose vein treatment, and if your conditions present any special risks.
Approximately 25 million Americans suffer from venous disease, a condition which often results in varicose veins and other painful symptoms. As you may know, this can have a significant effect on a person's lifestyle.
