Are you experiencing Varicose Veins?
If you’re one of the more than 25 million Americans who suffer from uncomfortable and unsightly varicose veins, we are happy to introduce a non-surgical treatment offered by Longview Radiologist that’s safe, virtually painless and requires little-to-no downtime.
It is called Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)
The VenaCure EVLT procedure uses a minimally invasive endovenous laser to treat varicose veins and is clinically proven alternative to traditional and painful ligation and stripping surgery. It requires no general anesthesia and offers minimal risk and shorter recovery time.
The VenaCure EVLT procedure uses the latest generation of EVLT catheter, which has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the United States, to insert a laser fiber directly inside the faulty vein under local anesthesia. The laser delivers a precise dose of energy into the vein wall, collapsing it. This process, called ablation, cures the condition and diverts blood flow to nearby functional veins. The resulting increased circulation significantly reduces the symptoms of varicose veins and improves their surface appearance.
The VenaCure EVLT treatment generally takes less than one hour and offers immediate relief with minimal-to-no scarring. Patients can usually resume normal activities immediately with minimal or no pain. The success rate of the VenaCure EVLT procedure is as high as 98 percent-measurably better than the alternatives of surgical ligation or stripping. All surgical procedures carry some degree of risk which will be discussed during your consultation visit with the interventional radiologist.
