The ClosureFast procedure is a minimally invasive treatment alternative with less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment.
Why ClosureFast Works
Using the ClosureFast system, providers close the diseased veins by inserting the ClosureFast catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. Heating the vein wall causes collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.

What we will Do
Risk factors include gender, age, pregnancy, obesity, a family history of varicose veins, sedentary occupation, or history of blood clot. Varicose veins never go away without treatment and frequently progress and worsen over time.
Map Out Game Plan
Using ultrasound to scan your leg(s), your physician will determine if superficial venous reflux is present.
Minimally Invasive Outpatient Procedure
Closure catheters are inserted into the vein via a tiny incision in the lower leg. This can be performed using local anesthesia in a physician’s office, as well as in an outpatient hospital or surgicenter.
Because treatment with Closure is minimally invasive and is catheter-based, results in little to no scarring. Review all safety information associated with the procedure by consulting your provider.
Following the procedure, a simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression may be provided to aid healing. Your provider may encourage you to walk, and to refrain from extended standing and strenuous activities for a period of time. Patients who undergo the Closure procedure typically resume normal activities within a day.
