Get dramatic results without surgery
Are painful varicose veins getting you down? Don’t suffer any longer. WVU Medicine offers a minimally invasive laser procedure, VenaCureTM, for varicose veins.
Varicose veins develop as a result of weakened vein walls plus faulty one-way valves in the veins. Ordinarily, the valves stop blood from flowing backward while on its way up to the heart. When these valves don’t work correctly, the veins become twisted, enlarged, and painful. VenaCureTM laser treatment closes off the veins so they shrink and the pain and pressure is relieved.
The benefits of VenaCureTM laser treatment include:
- No need for general anesthesia or hospitalization, a local anesthetic is all you need.
- The procedure generally takes only 45 minutes.
- You can return immediately to your normal routine.
- The procedure is covered by most insurance.
