Laser Ablation Vein Treatment in Los Angeles

Laser Ablation, also known as Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), is a type of medical treatment option used in the treatment of chronic venous disorders caused by venous hypertension. Laser ablation is an ultrasound guided, minimally invasive treatment for incompetent veins. This safe treatment option uses laser energy to cauterize, or burn, and finally close the incompetent veins.

The underlying goal for all laser ablation procedures is to deliver sufficient thermal energy to the wall of an incompetent vein segment to produce irreversible occlusion, fibrosis, and ultimately disappearance of the vein.
