Dr. Alex Afshar was featured on Channel 3, WFSB-TV (CBS) yesterday for the “Your Health” segment.
For a patient from Bridgeport, Connecticut, he performed a minimally invasive radiofrequency ablation procedure for varicose veins. This treatment delivered heat through a tiny catheter into a problem vein to close it off and dissolve it. This quick, in-office procedure typically takes only about 15 minutes and makes varicose veins fade away.
Dr. Afshar said, “With the latest, high frequency lasers as well as radiofrequency, because water is targeted instead of blood, there is no pain and there is no discomfort.”
