Effective Venefit Procedure in Caldwell and Meridian, Idaho

Vein Center of Idaho provides the Venefit Procedure, previously known as the VNUS Closure Procedure, for anyone with venous reflux or venous insufficiency. The Closure system closes the diseased veins by inserting the Closure 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.

FIND RELIEF TODAY WITH THE VENEFIT PROCEDURE

Some 25-million Americans face a daily struggle with the swollen, ropey veins that can cause throbbing pain, severe swelling, and heavy, tired legs. Half of all Americans over 50, and two-thirds of women over 60, have the condition. And many have dealt with it for decades, because varicose veins can appear even in teenagers too young to vote.

WHO’S AT RISK

Heredity is a factor in venous reflux disease – if your parents or siblings have had varicose veins, you're more likely to develop them. Additionally, people who are obese or have had multiple pregnancies are particularly susceptible, because the extra weight adds strain to the veins. Women are more vulnerable to the problem than men, partly because the hormonal changes brought on by menstruation, menopause, and hormone-based drug therapy can relax vein walls and cause venous reflux.

Your lifestyle, particularly physical activity, can affect your odds of developing varicose veins as well. People whose careers require them to stand in place for long periods of times such as nurses, teachers, waitresses, and flight attendants have a higher-than-average risk of venous disease. So do people who do a good deal of heavy lifting.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES

Once it appears, venous reflux disease never goes away by itself – it's a progressive condition that can only worsen unless treated. Fortunately, the minimally-invasive, device-based advances in medical technology that have so profoundly impacted heart, lung and brain surgery in recent years are now having a similarly revolutionary impact on the treatment of varicose veins. The Venefit Procedure represents the next step forward in this technology.

My legs have never looked so good! Dr. Joe is great, he performed phlebectomies, one on each leg and it was a minimal invasive procedure. Back to work the next day with very minor pain if any at all. And 2 treatments of sclerotherapy. Would definitely recommend.
