Closure® procedure eliminates the discomfort & appearance of varicose veins
VNUS® Closure is a clinically proven, minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins, and the underlying cause (superficial venous reflux) and associated leg discomfort, with little or no pain.
Closure patients can walk away from the procedure and be back to everyday activities – either at home or at work – typically within a day. The procedure doesn't require stitches. As an added benefit, Closure treatment costs less than traditional varicose vein surgery. For many patients the procedure is covered by health insurance, since varicose veins can be more than just a cosmetic concern.
Advantages of a new treatment
In many cases, varicose veins are painful and limit activity. The traditional surgical treatment for the condition involved stripping and ligation (binding and tying), a solution that many patients found very painful and which required up to a 6-week recovery period.
VNUS Closure procedure is perfect for people leading busy lives. Patients can look and feel better almost immediately, with very little inconvenience and without disrupting their normal lifestyle.
