Bye-Bye Vein Stripping: Say Hello to the Venefit™ Procedure at Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center
Getting rid of varicose veins for our mother’s generation used to mean painful vein stripping. Not anymore. Thanks to cutting-edge vein surgery at Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center in Goldsboro, NC, you may now have the Venefit procedure as a way to take back your legs from varicose veins.
The Venefit procedure is a non-surgical vein treatment that ultimately results in less pain and bruising. Dr. Albrecht will begin by using ultrasound technology to guide him in placing a specialized catheter within the affected vein. That catheter will then use radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the vein wall, effectively causing it to begin to shrink once the catheter is removed. Your blood supply will then reroute to other healthy veins.
What to Expect After the Venefit Procedure in Goldsboro, NC
After you elect to undergo the Venefit procedure at Wayne Vascular & Vein, your recovery will be relatively quick. As this is an outpatient procedure, you will be able to get back to your busy lifestyle the next day. Dr. Albrecht will protect the site where the catheter was inserted with a bandage, and may recommend additional compression therapy to boost healing.
Dr. Albrecht will likely recommend that you walk frequently and avoid standing for long periods of time after vein surgery, as this will also help expedite your healing process. Be sure to ask him any questions you may have about the procedure itself or post-care, as this will foster a greater sense of understanding about your varicose veins.
