Endovenous Laser Therapy
Endovenous Ablation, or Laser Vein Therapy
Vascular Laser Therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed in the office in less than one hour.
In this procedure, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the diseased vein. The physician delivers laser energy through the fiber, causing the vein to close. The loss of the diseased vein is not a problem for the circulatory system, since blood simply flows through other healthy veins after the procedure.
Although individual responses vary, most people report feeling little or no pain after Vascular Laser Therapy. Often, the only sensation that is felt is during the delivery of anesthetic to the leg. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately following the procedure.
