Treat Problem Veins Without Surgery
Varicose veins can be unsightly and even painful. In the past, surgery
was the only option for relief. Now, there are non-surgical options to
treat problem veins, such as Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT). This procedure
does not require anesthesia and is performed in-office in about an hour,
with minimal pain or scarring. Most individuals are able to return to
work/activities within 24 hours.
EVLT uses a laser to treat varicose veins.
- A thin optical fiber is inserted via a very tiny incision into the damaged vein.
- The fiber is extended the length of the vein and delivers energy from a
laser light which seals the vein closed.
- The fiber is removed and the blood is automatically rerouted to healthy veins.
How Are Results Provided?
Results are provided to your doctor typically within 48 hours of your visit.
Studies are read by a board-certified radiologist with North Oaks Imaging
Associates. Your results are available to your doctor in a CD format upon request.
