Endovenous Laser Treatment

An Overview

Endovenous laser treatments utilize guided laser energy to close off faulty veins with virtually no scarring. Endovenous Laser Treatment, also known as ELT or EVLT, provides patients suffering from varicose veins with an alternative to traditional vein removal surgery or "vein stripping."

The Future of Vein Removal

Vein removal surgery is now considered by many vein specialists to be an outdated and even obsolete technique for vein removal. Not only is surgery invasive, but it usually requires a significant amount of recovery time. One endovenous laser treatment generally last about 45 minutes and patients can usually resume their everyday activities right after this state-of-the-art varicose vein treatment. More and more vein centers will need to turn to advanced laser vein removal as the technology becomes available.

Getting Started with Endovenous Laser Treatment

Before any vein removal specialist can map out a treatment plan, they must look at the underlying cause of a patient's varicose veins. The first step of varicose vein treatment is an ultrasound evaluation. Because a person's vein network is so complicated, ultrasound technology gives the medical professional a detailed look at the varicose vein system and most importantly, helps them locate the faulty veins. Ultrasound examination can zero in on veins that are deep beneath the surface which will help your professional determine the safest and most effective treatment for you.

Endovenous Vein Treatment is available at local vein treatment center such as Vein Clinics of America.

Great Follow-ups from the Doctor

Posted by JUDY S. on .
Extremely professional staff, always on time and caring. Had a minor scare with some swelling after one procedure, so I called the office and they gave me the office number of another office that the doctor was at. He returned the call immediately and assured me that what was happening was normal and if I wanted to come in the following morning he would see me. I followed his suggestions and everything was fine.
