Endovenous Laser Ablation

  • This is a procedure that is performed in the office with local anesthesia. It is typically used to treat abnormal straight veins under the skin.
  • Through a needle puncture entry on the leg, a catheter is placed inside a diseased vein. Laser energy is then able to be released inside the vein and close the targeted vein segment. Over time, the body absorbs the treated vein and it disappears.
  • After the procedure, a compression hose is placed on the leg and the patient is put on a treadmill for a 15 minute walk.
  • Endovenous laser treatment is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment alternative to surgical stripping of the great saphenous vein.
  • Patients are able to walk immediately after the procedure and most individuals are able to return to work the next day.
  • Endovenous laser treatment is FDA approved.
