As it begins to be absorbed naturally into the body, other veins take over the return of nutrient- and oxygen-depleted blood to the heart.
Venefit targeted endovenous therapy - Formerly called VNUS ClosureFAST, Dr. Bunker most commonly performs this procedure, which is much like the laser technique but uses radiofrequency (RF) energy. Research suggests this technique is faster and easier on patients.
