Has anyone experienced radiofrequency ablation treatment for varicose veins?
hi @lizziemnz, and welcome to Connect. Here is some additional information on a variety of treatment options for varicose veins: http://mayocl.in/29WFKIF. I’m also tagging @trouse and @mlemieux who may be able to offer additional insight and advice.
@lizziemnz, how have you currently been treating your varicose veins?

I have had varicose veins for years and they never caused any problems (apart from being unsightly). About a month ago I had an attack of thrombophlebitis and so
I went to see a vascular specialist. He sent me to have an ultrasound scan of my legs and I have a follow up appointment with him next week. I’m pretty sure he is going recommend radiofrequency ablation and I am very nervous about this. I was looking for more information about the pros and cons.

Yes, I have had ablation treatment on vericose veins a couple of years ago. It was an easy procedure, and I have had good results.

Hello,Me too, similar problem and I have been referred for vein stripping surgery. I have not had the surgery looking for different options. Ablation seems like. Less risky option. Thank you for sharing
I had ablation treatment. In addition to many scars, all of my variscosities came back. Now I have thrombophlebitis from mid calf to groin. Very painful.
