Exeter, NH, March 07, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The physicians at Beacon Surgical Associates are one of a very limited number of offices in the Seacoast that offer full outpatient treatment of varicose veins. For the last year, they have successfully utilized the FastCath VNUS closure technique for closure of the saphenous vein. According to Dr. Christopher Roseberry, "The vast majority of varicose veins are a result of saphenous vein reflux. By closing the saphenous vein, the reflux, or downward flow of blood, is eliminated and the varicose veins resolve."
The FastCath system is done in the office and usually takes 30-60 minutes. This takes the place of the older vein stripping operation and is even replacing laser and older radiofrequency techniques simply because of the speed and safety of the operation. According to Dr. Rosebery, patients are back to work the next day and are uniformly happy to have their operation in an office setting rather than a hospital or day-surgery unit.
In addition to the FastCath VNUS closure, the surgeons at Beacon Surgery also offer ambulatory phlebectomy for removal of smaller surface veins and sclerotherapy for treatment of spider veins. Both of these are also office procedures with minimal downtime.
