Wondering how long the Venefit Procedure will take or what it’s like? Here’s a little Q&A about the Venefit Procedure to give you a heads up on what to expect.
How long does the Venefit™ procedure take?
The Venefit™ procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes, although patients may normally spend 2-3 hours at the medical facility due to normal pre- and post-treatment procedures.
Is the Venefit™ procedure painful?
Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the Venefit™ procedure. Your physician will give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
Does it require anesthesia?
The Venefit procedure can be performed under local, regional, or general anesthesia. It is generally performed using local anesthesia in a vein specialist’s office or an outpatient surgical facility.
How quickly after treatment can I return to normal activities?
Many patients experience a quicker return to normal activities4. For a few weeks following the treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from very strenuous activities (heavy lifting, for example) or prolonged periods of standing.
Is the Venefit™ procedure suitable for everyone?
Only a vein specialist can tell you if the Venefit™ procedure is the right option for your vein problem. Experience has shown that many patients with CVI can be treated with the Venefit™ procedure.
