Laser Treatment – EVLT for Varicose Veins

Today, virtually all large varicose veins are treated through an office-based procedure known as Endovenous Laser Therapy or EVLT.

Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) Treatment

Today, virtually all large varicose veins are treated through office-based procedures like EVLT. Endovenous Laser Therapy or EVLT, also called “endovenous laser ablation” is a minimally invasive procedure that permanently seals the vein closed, preventing blood from pooling.

It is also highly effective and safe treatment for varicose veins. The post- procedure recovery is usually uneventful, with patients experiencing minimal discomfort, bruising or swelling. Usually, you can return to normal activities within a few days.

At North Shore Vascular, when EVLT is combined with a microphlebectomy (which removes smaller varicosities), the results are significantly enhanced.

When EVLT received FDA approval in 2002, Dr. Golan was the first vascular surgeon in the Chicago area to learn the procedure. Today, he is considered one of the foremost experts in EVLT.
Dr. Golan is a sought-after consultant on varicose vein conditions and has trained over 600 physicians throughout the country on the laser vein procedure.
