Venefit Procedure for Treating Ulcers
Effective Treatments for Venous Ulcers
Venous ulcers can be caused by a variety of different venous diseases, including high blood pressure and diabetes. These ulcers form when blood cannot flow effectively from your lower extremities back to your heart. Instead, the blood pools in the area, leading to skin and nerve damage if untreated. California Vein & Vascular Centers offers an alternative method of treating venous ulcers. Instead of the traditional and invasive vein stripping surgery, we provide the Venefit procedure to those in Los Gatos, CA and the surrounding areas. This alternative treatment option still targets and corrects the damaged veins that are causing the ulcers but in a minimally invasive way. If you are living with recurring ulcers, it may be time to talk to our medical professionals about our effective treatment options.
What Is the Venefit Procedure?
The Venefit procedure is an FDA-approved and minimally invasive operation that harnesses radiofrequency energy. This energy is used to target the diseased veins that are causing the venous ulcers. When it is time to perform the procedure, our medical professionals will create a small opening in the skin for the catheter to enter. We will then guide the catheter through the opening and into the diseased vein. The catheter will then deliver the radiofrequency energy into the vein in order to heat its walls. When the vein is heated and the catheter is removed, the vein will close. After the vein closes, the blood is rerouted to healthy veins. The Venefit procedure is an outpatient treatment that requires little downtime. This treatment is used to target the underlying cause of the ulcers rather than temporary treatments such as antibiotics, salves, and other temporary fixes.
