If you have been told that you require treatment for venous insufficiency, continue reading, because virtually no one needs surgery anymore. You may also want to take a look at our FAQ which will answer some common questions about vein disease and its treatment.
When treatments are performed properly (i.e. find the root of the problem with an ultrasound and eliminate it at the source), you should get long-lasting results – your varicose veins and your symptoms of venous insufficiency should disappear permanently.
USA Vein Clinics achieves its high success rate in varicose vein treatments by not taking shortcuts. At USA Vein Clinics, you will be seen by one of our highly skilled and caring physicians who will develop a custom tailored vein treatment plan just for you. The first thing we do when making a diagnosis of venous insufficiency is map out your network of veins using diagnostic ultrasound.
Then using a systematic approach, we start treating your disease by eliminating the source of the problem. Our physicians employ lasers, a varicose vein innovation that began rapidly rising in popularity around the world in about 2002.
We use ultrasound at every visit to give us a clear picture of which vein we need to treat.
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is an innovative FDA approved non-surgical treatment for the permanent elimination of the superficial venous insufficiency, which is a typical cause of large varicose veins, leg swelling, heavines, cramps, brownish skin discoloration, and non-healing wounds. This technique has been used for almost a decade and since 2005 it is considered to be the Gold Standard for the elimination of venous insufficiency and large varicose veins.
It involves a precise insertion of a very thin (less than one millimeter) laser fiber into the diseased veins under real-time ulstrasound guideness, followed by an application of laser energy to heat and close the malfunctioning veins, which is called vein closure. Other healthy veins take over normal blood flow in the leg immediately. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body.
Depending on the number of diseased veins more than one procedure may be required.
EVLT procedure is done in our offices, and it usually takes less than 15 minutes from the start of the procedure until it is completed.
To prevent discomfort during the procedure we use a local anesthesia similarly to the one used in dental office.
Because of its minimally-invasive nature, EVLT procedure will not interrupt your normal daily routine. You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after EVLT treatment and even go back to work.
USA Vein Clinics are experts in EVLT treatment. We master this gold standard in the vein care since 2005 and helped more than 10,000 of patients across the United States.
