Dr. Haimesh Shah is a board-certified vein doctor in Los Angeles offering advanced minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation therapy for the treatment of incompetent veins.
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic venous insufficiency. This technique uses radio frequency energy (instead of laser energy) to heat up and damage the wall inside the vein. Radio frequency energy is directed through a thin tube (catheter) inserted through a small incision in the vein. This usually closes off an incompetent vein in the leg.
The entire procedure is done in the office setting using local anesthesia or a mild sedative, if needed. Patients are able to walk following the treatment and recovery time is typically short. After treatment, you will wear compression stockings for 1 week or more. A follow-up duplex ultrasound will be scheduled to make sure that the vein is closed.
When performed by a doctor with plenty of radiofrequency experience such Dr. Shah of Center for Vein Wellness, the chances of successful treatment are very promising. It is documented that radiofrequency ablation therapy works well in about 97 out of 100 people who have it.
Everyone here has made me feel like more than just a patient. They are all so nice and I have felt confident that everything is necessary and will make it better. I was lucky enough to meet Dr Shaw at the wound care at pleasant Valley Hospitol where he not only healed my elbow, but noticed he could- Cindy G
