Navigating Vascular Surgery: A Guide for Patients

Two vascular surgeons performing surgery on a patient's leg in El Paso.

Varicose veins are large, swollen veins located in the legs. In many cases, the result of having these veins cause people to feel self-conscious. However, there are cases where varicose veins cause physical discomfort, such as burning, throbbing, or muscle cramping. 

This condition will affect approximately 20% of all adults at some point in their lives, but El Paso Varicose Vein Laser Clinic is here to help. Our vascular surgeons offer several solutions so you can feel happy and healthy. Contact us online or call (915) 577-0121 to learn more.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

If you want a minimally invasive procedure, our El Paso vascular surgeons offer Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) to treat varicose veins. The procedure consists of a laser fiber that’s introduced into the affected vein through a flexible catheter tube. Once inserted, the laser energy heats the vein walls, causing them to collapse and sealing them shut. Unlike traditional vein stripping surgery, EVLA allows for a faster recovery and reduced pain. It’s a preferred method for many patients.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Unlike EVLA, which addresses larger varicose veins, ambulatory phlebectomy focuses on removing smaller veins closer to the skin’s surface with tiny incisions. Due to the size of the incisions, this procedure allows patients to return home on the same day to promote a faster recovery. This procedure is performed by a vascular surgeon and often requires additional vein treatments for comprehensive results. 


Sclerotherapy is widely used for treating spider veins—damaged blood vessels—and smaller varicose veins. This procedure consists of a special solution injected directly into the affected veins, allowing them to collapse and fade over time. It’s a simple, effective procedure with minimal discomfort. Like EVLA, it’s also a non-invasive solution, especially for those looking for a solution for cosmetic issues. 


VenaSeal is a certified, FDA-approved product vascular surgeons in El Paso use to offer another minimally invasive option to patients. It’s essentially used as a vein glue to seal damaged veins. It’s administered in small doses to shut the vein down and harden. Once the vein hardens, your body can absorb it, causing it to disappear and eliminate feelings of discomfort. It’s a recommended non-surgical procedure that doesn’t involve any of the complications surgery brings.


Varithena is a medical foam, also known as polidocanol injectable foam, that can be injected into a vein through a catheter without the need for anesthesia or surgery. Unlike VenaSeal, this treatment option fills the damaged veins with foam, which causes the vein to collapse. Once this happens, the foam deactivates. Varithena is a quick treatment that can be completed within 20 minutes to treat twisted veins.
