Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do you treat varicose veins?
    The goals of therapy are to eliminate reflux, pain or other symptoms, as well as the varicosities. In the past, this was accomplished in part by a painful surgical procedure called stripping, in which the refluxing vein was completely removed through two incisions. This has been replaced by Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) which uses laser energy to shut down the abnormal vein rather than remove it. EVLT is performed through a needle stick in the lower thigh area and takes about 25 minutes. It is done under local anesthesia and patients return to normal activities the same day as the procedure.
  • Is endovenous laser therapy painful?
    Most people report little to no pain associated with EVLT. Often, the only sensation felt is during the delivery of anesthetic to the leg. Following the procedure, you may feel some tenderness, tingling, itching or tightness in the treated leg, as well as some moderate bruising, which should disappear within a month.
  • How successful is endovenous laser therapy?
    Multiple clinical studies have documented the clinical success of EVLT. The majority of patients require no further procedures to eliminate the varicosities. EVLT also prevents the development of varicose veins in the future. On occasion, the varicosities do not shrink to normal size veins. This is typically because they are too stretched or are receiving pressurized blood from other deeper and less safely treated veins. In these circumstances, an additional procedure called microphlebectomy may be necessary. This outpatient procedure involves making several tiny ‘nicks’ in the skin and manually removing the stretched veins. It is done under local anesthesia and requires no stitches, is not painful and results in no scarring.

    Any minor risks inherent in varicose or other vein treatments will be thoroughly discussed with you at your initial consultation.
