Say Goodbye to Vein Stripping: The Modern Approach to Varicose Veins

Gone are the days of vein stripping, the invasive surgical procedure once used to treat varicose veins. Dr. James St. George, a renowned Jacksonville vein specialist, introduces the modern and minimally invasive alternative: endovenous ablation.

Introducing Endovenous Ablation

Endovenous ablation is an advanced treatment that employs heat energy to target the saphenous veins, the underlying cause of varicose veins and their associated symptoms, such as leg pain, swelling, and discoloration. By applying heat to the inner vein walls, the procedure damages the vein tissue, prompting the formation of scar tissue that effectively closes off spider and varicose veins. As a result, these veins are no longer able to swell, leading to the disappearance of unsightly bulges and the alleviation of discomfort.

Experience Minimal Discomfort and Fast Recovery

Although the idea of using heat to treat veins may sound uncomfortable, the procedure is surprisingly gentle. Patients typically feel only a slight pinprick when the local anesthetic is administered and some pressure when the catheter is inserted. The recovery time is minimal, allowing patients to return to work immediately. Endovenous ablation is a versatile treatment suitable for patients of all ages and is often followed by non-invasive treatments like sclerotherapy and the use of graduated pressure stockings.
