Venefit Procedure & Treatment

The Venefit® procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional vein stripping for patients with superficial venous reflux, an underlying cause of varicose veins. This procedure provides patients with less pain and bruising than alternative treatments and wonderful, lasting results

The Venefit © procedure uses a small catheter to seal the vein shut through a single small incision. The patient can usually return to normal activities within a day. Best of all, once a defective saphenous vein is sealed shut or "occluded," blood flow immediately diverts to healthy veins. Like any interventional procedure, the VNUS Closure procedure involves risks and potential complications.
