Endovenous Laser Treatment (CTEV™)

Endovenous Laser Treatment provides an effective alternative to the traditional surgical varicose vein treatment. Surgical varicose vein treatment involves stripping the greater saphenous vein (GSV) and the short saphenous vein (SSV). With an Endovenous Laser Treatment, however, we insert a small laser fiber, usually through a needle stick in the skin, into the varicose vein. This fiber delivers pulses of light into the vein, which causes it to collapse and seal shut. The Endovenous Laser Treatment is done in our office under local anesthesia. Following the procedure, we protect the area using a bandage or compression hose. You may return to work and resume normal activities the next day. The Endovenous Laser Treatment is 95% to 98% effective.
