This ultrasound-guided procedure uses targeted laser energy to seal the vein. It is a 20-30 minute procedure and is minimally invasive.
What is VenaCure EVLT™
VenaCure EVLT™ is a method of endovenous laser therapy. Endovenous laser therapy uses highly concentrated light energy to treat varicose veins. The energy is targeted with extreme precision to the treatment area. The procedure is performed by inserting a thin fiber into the damaged vein through a small entry point in the skin. The light energy is emitted through the fiber as it is pulled back through the vein. As the fiber is pulled out, the laser heats the vein and closes it shut. This causes the enlarged vein to disappear and allows blood flow to be rerouted to healthy veins. For more information about EVLT™ click here.
