SONOVEIN® is the first and only robotic solution for the non-invasive echotherapy treatment of varicose veins:
Whiteley , HIFU for the treatment of varicose veins and venous leg ulcers, Current Medical Research and Opinion, 36:3, 509-512
From a histological perspective, vein ablation by echotherapy with SONOVEIN and radiofrequency display identical features – with the significant benefit of echotherapy being completely non-invasive.
The high-intensity ultrasound beam (HIFU) is focused on the vein and a standard ultrasound beam controls the accuracy. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein shrinks and is sealed closed, similar to other endothermal methods – but non-invasively.

It opens the way to therapeutic possibilities in phlebology that were unthinkable before […] This is the future.Dr. Paolo Casoni, Vascular surgery expert
It is fascinating to see how SONOVEIN can apply thermal energy to an
insufficient vein completely noninvasively – without catheter, injection
needle or any kind of incision. This opens up possibilities which where unthinkable until now.
It was literally a real walk-in walk-out treatment experience.Dr. Omar Abu-Bakr, Echotherapy patient & Specialist Venous Surgeon at The Whiteley Clinic, UK
Echotherapy with SONOVEIN will be an absolute game changer in varicose vein treatments – treat venous insufficiency 100% non-invasively is a huge opportunity for physicians without the need for an operating theatre.
For patients this will be a disruptive therapy, providing the safest possible treatment even for high risk patients.Dr. Rubén Rodríguez Carvajal, Director of the International Vascular and Endovascular Institute (IVEI), Marbella, Spain
