The Endovenous Laser Therapy procedure is an updated alternative to the customary/ previous vein stripping treatment. The updated procedure is faster than before and can be performed under local anesthesia with minimal pain. After the procedure there is a rather pain-less and quick recovery time.  Dr. Salama will use an ultrasound machine to examine and map out the vein to be treated.  With the procedure, an anesthesiologist will make you comfortable and relaxed while monitoring all your needs, and Dr. Salama will focus on the procedure.  Dr. Salama feels this is the best treatment available and is unmatched in quality and expertise in the area.

Once the procedure is completed you can return to regular daily activities immediately and it is recommended that you walk directly after the procedure. Intense physical activity should be refrained from for 3 to 4 weeks. During the first 3 to 5 days you may see some bruising or soreness however walking or taking a light pain reliever such as Motrin will relieve any pain or distress.

The Endovenous Laser Therapy for varicose veins has multiple benefits including:

• Easy and quick procedure. (Completed within an hour.)
• Performed under local anesthetic.
• Reduced pain with minimal risk of scarring and postoperative infection.
• Fast recovery with relatively no pain after the procedure.
• Daily routine can be resumed immediately.
• Amazing clinical and aesthetic results.
