Columbus General Surgery offers procedure for painful legs
It’s nearly summer, and Columbus Community Hospital’s Columbus General Surgery wants area residents to love their legs.
For people suffering from venous hypertension, their painful, tired and achy legs can keep them from doing the activities they enjoy, such as bicycling, gardening and even walking.
Columbus General Surgery offers a procedure that can help people’s legs feel better, protect them from future skin problems and give them the active life they’ve always imagined.
It’s called VNUS RF Ablation.
“When your legs are tired, you’re tired,” said Dr. Ronald Ernst, surgeon at Columbus General Surgery. “VNUS Ablation can help your legs feel better and protect them from future problems.”
VNUS® RF Ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment that uses radiofrequency energy (electricity) to heat, collapse and seal off the targeted blood vessels.
Surgeons at Columbus General Surgery say it’s the best option for people suffering from venous hypertension.
“In the past, the only option someone had was called vein stripping,” Dr. Ernst said. “That was an operation where they actually pulled the varicose veins out. It wasn’t a great operation because people often had recurrent problems.”
According to Dr. Ernst, VNUS Ablation is proven to provide much better, longer lasting benefits than previous treatments.
“After VNUS Ablation, a lot of people tell me that their legs feel better than they have in years,” Ernst said.
