Our Services

A collaborative partnership with the Alexian Wound Healing Center allows us to care for patients with venous stasis or leg ulcers. This continuity of care is essential to provide the best possible outcome for each patient.

Several treatment options are available at Advanced Laser Vein Center locations on an outpatient basis to address the full spectrum of vein-related disorders. After a careful assessment of your needs, including the severity of your condition, a personalized plan will be developed that may include any of the following treatments.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

ELVT is an innovative, minimally invasive process to close incompetent veins that replaces the traditional vein stripping, an open surgery method used as a standard of care for many years. EVLT closes the great saphenous vein in the leg, the source of bulging vein and associated with pain. With local anesthesia, a thin laser is inserted discretely in the knee and delivers an energy impulse that causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. The blood in the vein is then diverted to the normal working veins in the leg.

  • Treatment time is 30-40 minutes
  • A return to normal activity is immediate
  • Little to no pain or bruising
  • No scarring
  • Studies show EVLT has a 98% initial success rate with excellent long-term results.
Please watch this video to better understand EVLT and how it can help treat varicose veins through a 45 minute procedure.

Sclerotherapy

A very safe, dilute solution is injected into small to medium sized diseased veins causing them to eventually disappear. Blood is then re-routed to healthy veins. Ultrasound imaging may be used as well to map underlying blood vessels that may be problematic, allowing specialists to identify specific locations for medications to safely and accurately be administered for long-lasting results.

  • Treatment time is about 30 minutes
  • Bruising may vary and there is minimal scarring

Sclerotherapy also is used for treatment of tiny dilated blood vessels called spider veins. They are dark and prominent and are red, blue or purple in color because of their proximity to the skin surface. Spider veins also can become dilated and swollen with blood, particularly during pregnancy and hormone fluctuation.

  • No anesthetic is needed
  • Expect 3-6 treatment sessions that may last 15 minutes each

Ambulatory phlebectomy

Under local anesthetic, this mini-surgical approach removes diseased veins. With minimal incisions and stitches, this procedure is used for patients with complex varicose veins in the great and small saphenous veins in the leg and their nearby branches.

  • Treatment time is 30-40 minutes
  • Bruising may vary and there is minimal or no visible scarring

The Advanced Laser Vein Center practice will be enhanced with the addition of skilled clinicians who will offer the best treatment options for our patients.
