SONOVEIN® is the first and only robotic solution for the non-invasive echotherapy treatment of varicose veins:

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.

Echotherapy is a medical breakthrough which allows us for the first time in history to treat the patient from the outside. This completely changes the patient experience and eradicates the risks related to invasive surgery or laser treatments.
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
