Posted by @lizziemnz, Aug 19, 2016

Has anyone experienced radiofrequency ablation treatment for 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
