Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT)

Endovenous Laser Ablation, also known as (EVLT), is a type of medical procedure used in the treatment of chronic venous disorders. Laser ablation is an ultrasound guided, minimally invasive treatment for incompetent veins. A laser light emitted through a thin fiber inserted into the damaged vein delivers just the right amount of energy. The underlying goal for all laser ablation procedures is to deliver sufficient thermal energy to the wall of an incompetent vein. This safe treatment option uses laser energy to close and seal shut the incompetent vein. This process diverts the blood flow to nearby healthy veins. The increased circulation significantly reduces the symptoms of varicose veins and improves their overall appearance. Legs will feel much better and allow for increased mobility without discomfort. EVLT vein treatment eliminates varicose veins where they start and can lead to a substantial increase in quality of life.
