Endovenous Laser Guided Treatment (EVLT)
Endovenous laser guided treatment (EVLT) is a tool that treats the source veins for varicose veins in the legs.
The primary procedure used for the treatment of varicose veins at Vascular Vein Centers is laser ablation (EVLT). This has been very successful in treating source veins: Great and Small Saphenous and Perforator veins. The procedure has been shown to be effective and has a very low recurrence rate with less post-operative discomfort when compared to traditional “vein-stripping.”
This laser vein treatment is performed in our clinics and takes about 30 minutes. Local anesthesia is used without the need for sedation. A catheter (small tube) is inserted into the vein (usually above the knee) and a thin laser fiber is placed through the catheter and then pulled back using focused energy to close the problem vein.
"I would definitely recommend Dr Martin and the Orlando practice."

This vein treatment has many key benefits over more invasive, older procedures:
The results of laser ablation are better than surgical removal and there is less discomfort and recovery time. Approximately one week after your EVLT treatment, an ultrasound is performed to evaluate the treated vein for closure.
Strenuous exercise usually can be resumed in a week. Laser treatment of veins is a safe, effective and enduring procedure. The blood that would normally flow through these veins is redirected into the deep veins, which carry 90% of the blood from the leg anyway.
