The VNUS Closure® Procedure:
A Solution to Leg Pain and Varicose Veins

Presence St. Mary's Hospital offers the VNUS Closure procedure for comprehensive management of vein disease. It is a minimally invasive, more comfortable, and less painful alternative compared to traditional methods of treatment of varicose veins.

  • Instant Relief of Symptoms
  • Outpatient Procedure
  • Local or General Anesthesia
  • Able to Resume Normal Activity in 1-2 Days
  • Little or No Scarring, Bruising, or Swelling
  • Covered by Most Insurance Plans

The VNUS Closure procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver controlled heat to the vein wall, causing it to shrink and close. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to healthy veins.
