Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous Laser Ablation in Colorado Springs and Lone Tree

Are you struggling with unsightly and uncomfortable varicose veins? You're not alone. Varicose veins are a common condition, and fortunately, there are effective treatment options available. At Albert Vein Institute, we offer endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), a minimally invasive procedure that can provide lasting relief from varicose veins.

Contact the professionals at Albert Vein Institute today to learn more about endovenous laser ablation in Colorado Springs and Lone Tree.

What is Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)?

EVLA is a safe and effective minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. During EVLA, a thin catheter is inserted into the diseased vein using ultrasound guidance. A laser fiber is then inserted through the catheter, and laser energy is delivered to the inside of the vein wall. This laser energy heats the vein, causing it to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the body naturally reabsorbs the treated vein.

Benefits of EVLA for Varicose Veins

EVLA offers several advantages over traditional vein stripping surgery, including:

  • Minimally invasive: EVLA requires only a small incision, resulting in minimal scarring and discomfort.
  • Outpatient procedure: EVLA can typically be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return home the same day.
  • Faster recovery: Patients typically experience a quicker recovery time with EVLA compared to traditional surgery.
  • Reduced pain: EVLA is a less painful procedure than vein stripping.
  • Improved cosmetic results: EVLA is a highly effective treatment for varicose veins, leading to significant improvement in the appearance of your legs.

Who is a Candidate for EVLA?

EVLA is a safe and effective treatment for many patients with varicose veins. However, it is not suitable for everyone. During a consultation at Albert Vein Institute, our experienced vein specialists will assess your individual case and determine if EVLA is the right treatment for you. Factors that will be considered include:

  • The severity of your varicose veins
  • The location of your varicose veins
  • Your overall health

What to Expect During an EVLA Procedure at Albert Vein Institute

At Albert Vein Institute, we are committed to providing our patients with a comfortable and positive experience. Here's a general overview of what to expect during your EVLA procedure:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, our vein specialist will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and treatment options. They will also perform a physical examination and may order an ultrasound to evaluate your veins.
  • Procedure: On the day of your procedure, you will be placed in a comfortable position. Local anesthesia will be used to numb the area around the treatment site. The catheter will be inserted into the diseased vein, and laser energy will be delivered to close the vein.
  • Recovery: After the procedure, you will be monitored for a short period and then released to go home. You may experience some mild discomfort or bruising, which can be managed with medication.
