Varicose Veins Treatment

More than 25 million Americans suffer from the unsightly, uncomfortable and often painful physical effects of varicose veins. Varicose veins can impact more than a person’s appearance. They may also cause continued and progressive pain, fatigue and swelling of the ankles and can lead to a number of other conditions:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lipodermosclerosis
  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Spontaneous bleeding
  • Superficial thrombophlebitis

During endovenous laser treatment, a small incision is made in the diseased vein, and a very thin laser fiber is inserted. Once the fiber has been positioned in the desired treatment location, the laser delivers small amounts of thermal energy causing the vein to close. The laser fiber is then gradually withdrawn until the entire diseased vein is treated.

Why choose The Vein Care Center for varicose veins treatment?

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.
