Sunday, December 2, 2012


 The Venefitprocedure is the also known as the Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Ablation procedure which was previously called the VNUS Closure procedure. 


Read about VNUS FAST Closure (The Venefit Procedure) by the first surgeon in the world (Dr Karamanoukian) who performed simultaneous bilateral VNUS Closure procedures (The Venefit Procedure). The data was presented at the 2008 American College of Phlebology meeting (November 8) and can be viewed on


Our commitment to exemplary care starts with meticulous follow-up of our patients and scientific presentation of our data points and outcomes in national meetings organized by the American College of Phlebology. Both of our physicians are Board Certified in Phlebology and one of the early physicians in the U.S. who sought and earned board certification in phlebology from the American College of Phlebology in 2009.


Venous insufficiency is a serious medical problem that is usually progressive if left untreated. When reflux of blood in the venous system occurs in the saphenofemoral junction (venous reflux), treatment options were limited, UNTIL NOW!


Traditionally, superficial venous reflux at the saphenofemoral junction (in the groin) was treated surgically by ligation (tying) and division of the saphenous vein trunk and all proximal tributaries followed by stripping of the great saphenous vein (vein stripping). This combined procedure was referred to as "ligation and stripping".


We offer not only the Venefit Procedure but also endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) and the ClariVein Procedure to treat venous insufficeincy.
