The VNUS ClosureFAST™ catheter is a breakthrough technology that the doctors at Venocure use to solve varicose vein issues for our patients.

This device is the latest innovation in vein treatment technology, and it is the only one approved by the FDA. Use of the VNUS ClosureFAST™ device allows our vein specialists to perform Radiofrequency Ablation services, a procedure that replaces the older treatment called vein stripping. Compared to vein stripping, Radiofrequency Ablation has many advantages:

  • It takes much less time
  • It is much less painful
  • It doesn’t leave ragged ends of veins in your tissues
  • Veins don’t have a chance to grow back (neovascularization)

Vein disease is also frequently treated with another procedure, called endovenous laser treatment, but the VNUS ClosureFAST™ treatment gets results with much less post-procedure pain and bruising. Our doctors have invested in this technology because we have a commitment to making sure that your vein treatment is successful, heals correctly, and leaves you feeling as fabulous as possible.

Imagine a tiny piece of metal with a rounded tip and a long tail attached behind it. It slips gently into your varicose vein and travels along the curves and bulges of your vein until it gets to the end that the doctor has determined needs to be sealed off. You barely feel anything as it travels up the the origin point of your vein. Then the doctor switches on a radiofrequency energy generator that produces a controlled amount of energy as he pulls the catheter back out, monitoring the heat so that the device is always delivering the precise optimum amount of energy to your vein walls. It slips in, it slips out, and you’re done!
