Laser treatment

With EVLB (Endovenous Laser Treatment), the varicose vein in the thigh or calf is closed using a laser. Under ultrasound guidance, the varicose vein is punctured at the knee (if we are treating the upper leg) or at the bottom of the calf (if we are treating the calf). A laser wire is advanced into the vein through this access. The correct position of the laser wire is determined with ultrasound. The vein is anesthetized and then cauterized with the heat of the laser light by slowly withdrawing the wire. The result is that the vein wall shrinks and the varicose vein closes.

After treatment

After the treatment, you will get an elastic support stocking that must be worn during the day for 36 hours. We already have this stocking available for you at the clinic.
