EVLT Laser Ankeny IA

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT®), also known as laser vein ablation, is a minimally-invasive procedure used to treat the great saphenous vein (GSV), small saphenous vein (SSV) and other superficial veins. It uses laser energy applied inside the faulty (or incompetent) vein to seal it shut. The EVLT procedure has been FDA-approved since 2002 and over 100,000 procedures have been performed. Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is commonly performed in a physician's office, under local anesthesia, in less than an hour, generally with rapid return to normal activity. Other names for laser vein ablation include endovenous laser ablation of the saphenous vein (ELAS or ELA), endovenous laser therapy (ELT), and endovenous laser vein system (ELVeS).
