Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)


Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute are the spider and varicose vein treatment experts. We use the most advanced modes of venous insufficiency treatment, like Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). Before EVLT, vein stripping was common practice. Unlike vein stripping, EVLT is minimally invasive procedure in which a laser is used to destroy the walls of the varicose veins. The heat from the powerful light of the laser closes the unhealthy vein. EVLT is an effective choice to avoid traditional surgery and may be used in place of other treatments.

During the EVLT treatment, the vascular expert will insert a laser into the diseased vein with very small catheter guided by an ultrasound device. The heat from the laser damages the walls of the affected vein, causing it to collapse. The vein permanently closes and the body redirects blood to flow through healthy veins. EVLT is an effective and easy way to treat varicose veins without surgery.
