Laser Vein Treatment
What are the treatment options for vein disease?
Depending on the type and stage of vein disease, there are many different treatments. Your physician can explain all of the options.
For minor pain from varicose veins, a compression stocking may be beneficial. The compression stocking will assist the leg in the pumping of blood back to the heart. While the vein disease symptoms may be relieved, compression stockings will not make the varicose veins go away.
Endovenous Laser Therapy
In the last few years, the use of lasers has become an accepted alternative to surgical stripping to treat varicose veins. In endovenous laser therapy, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the diseased vein, generally through a small puncture in the leg above where the visual symptoms appear. The physician then delivers laser energy through the fiber which causes the vein to close as the fiber is gradually removed. Endovenous laser therapy can be performed in a physician?s office in less than one hour, and the patient is encouraged to walk immediately following the procedure.
