Here at Treasure Coast Heart and Vascular (TCH&V), we take a patient-centered approach to your cardiovascular health. This is why our Port St. Lucie varicose vein and leg pain treatment team uses Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy (EVLT) to treat varicose veins, chronic leg pain, restless leg syndrome, leg swelling, and venous ulcers.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy (EVLT) is the easiest way to remove undesirable and painful varicose veins. Our Port St. Lucie varicose vein and leg pain treatment expertss use EVLT because it is quick, minimally invasive, and has a high success rate (98%).
Our veins control the blood flow through our body, and each has valves that control circulation. Varicose veins are veins with a broken valve. Because of this, blood flows backward and remains in the vein, causing it to expand and prevent your blood from circulating properly.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy is a nonsurgical option that uses a combination of catheters, lasers, and ultrasounds to treat this condition by closing off the varicose vein, allowing your blood to flow normally again.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy has a number of advantages.
- On average, the procedure only takes 10 minutes.
- The procedure is minimally invasive and only requires a small incision.
- While patients should expect some bruising and swelling, most are able to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
- Most insurance plans cover the procedure. Affordable payment options are available for patients without insurance or those with especially-high deductibles.
