Who is a good candidate for RFA?
Patients who are good candidates for RFA treatment will have veins that reflux in the greater saphenous veins (along the thigh) and/or small saphenous vein (back of the calf). To be able to pass the laser fiber or RFA catheter up the vein, it is crucial that the vein is relatively straight. Dr. Ahn will thoroughly examine your condition during your consultation and determine whether RFA is the best treatment for you.
