The Vein Care Center at the Wellmont CVA Heart Institute office in Johnson City is the only facility in the Tri-Cities region of Northeast
Tennessee and Southwest Virginia offering endovenous laser treatment
performed by double-board-certified cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons
– the most qualified professionals to treat varicose veins. These experts at The Vein Care Center offer patients with varicose veins an alternative to conventional surgical remedies and spider vein treatments.
Endovenous laser treatment – sometimes called laser vein treatment or EVLT – is a relatively painless, state-of-the-art procedure for treating varicose veins in men and women. The non-surgical technique is performed in an office setting in about an hour and is a safe and effective way to help eliminate varicose veins. Laser vein treatment is covered by most insurance plans.
Most patients resume their normal activities the day of their EVLT procedure, and many patients experience immediate results from EVLT.
