Endovenous Laser Ablation:

ELT is perfromed for the treatment of large,bulging varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous valve reflux.  In the last few years, the use of Laser has become an accepted alternative for the surgical stripping.  With ELT, No hospital admission or surgery is required and the entire procedure can be perfromed in less than 45 ninutes.  Briefly described, ELT is done under local Anesthesia by using Ultasound guidance to thread a small Laser fiber into the diseased vein.  The physician then delivers laser energy through the fiber which casuses the vein to close as the fiber is gradually withdrawn.  After the procedure a compression hose is worn for approximately 7-10 days.  Immediately after the procedure the patient is encouraged to walk for 20-30 minutes and resume normal activity and use non aspirin based pain meds if needed.(Tylenol,Moltrin) 



Ambulatory Phlebectomy:

Varicose veins are removed through a series of tiny punctures using local anesthesia. This is an outpatient procedure with minimal to no scarring.  The procedure takes from 20-45 minutes and you may resume your normal activities immediately.  We ask that you walk,bike or treadmill for a maximum of an hour for a few days.



Sclerotherapy:

     Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a small volume of liquid into the diseased vein which casuses the vein to shrink, close and gradually disappear.  Sclerotherapy is used for spider veins and small varicose veins and might require multiple sessions depending on the number of diseased veins.  It is perfromed in the physicians offce and no anesthesia is required.  The procedure takes 15-20 minutes, after the procedure a compression stocking should be worn for 2-3 days and patients should walk,bike or treadmill for up to an hour for a few days.
