Endovenous Laser (EVLT)

Endovenous Laser (EVLT)

Endovenous laser therapy is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. Performed under local anesthetic, this procedure involves inserting a thin laser fiber optic catheter into the vein and then applying heat to seal the vein shut thereby closing the source of the abnormal veins that give rise to the visible varicose veins on the skin. In sum, EVLT shuts off the source of chronic venous insufficiency symptoms, the saphenous veins, and the varicose veins are removed by hand during phlebectomy (see Phlebectomy section).

If your leg pain and discomfort are caused by venous insufficiency, then EVLT will result in significant improvement in pain and discomfort in over 80% of patients.
