Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose Vein Treatment in Louisville, KY

Our vascular surgeons use advanced laser technology for the treatment of varicose veins. An EVLA is endovenous laser that uses light waves to eliminate varicose veins.

With the EVLA, a small fiber is inserted into the varicose vein. The laser is activated and as the fiber is pulled back through the vein, it gently heats and safely closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, the blood that was circulating through the vein is re-routed to other healthy veins.

The EVLA procedure in minimally invasive and is performed in the office. There are no incisions, scars or bruising and since the access site is so small no sutures are necessary. You will be able to resume light routine activity the next day and athletic or strenuous activities within several days to a couple of weeks depending upon your specific case.
