Laser vein surgeries
Laser treatment of veins is one of the youngest, latest, very efficient methods, with more than 98% of success and minimum complications.
Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is a minimum-invasion procedure for treatment of varicose veins. The principle of operation involves minimum-invasion procedures that guarantee the best possible result with minimum trauma for the patient.
Advantages of laser endovenous ablation relative to traditional surgical treatment include the following:
- Hospitalization is not required
- Less risk of complications
- The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, thus avoiding the risk of general and regional anaesthesia which is required in traditional surgical treatments
- Excellent cosmetic effect
- Virtually painless postoperative recovery
- Patients rapidly continue their regular daily activities
The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia. After surgery you will begin to walk, we recommend a 10-15 minute walk immediately after surgery. In the further course of recovery, we recommend half hour walks several times a day.
Most side effects are transient, reddening and pain in the thigh as a result of laser thermal effect. The pain is most intensive 3-5 days upon surgery. All these types of problems disappear in the next couple of days. When compared to the traditional surgery (stripping), all specified changes are minor, average amount and scope of those changes are much less, while the recovery is much faster.
There is a big misconception that veins are not treated during the summer months, people in tropical areas also treat varicose veins. Owing to the minimum-invasive procedure, laser treatment of veins may also be performed during summer months.
