Laser Treatment of Varicose Veins

The Endovenous Laser Therapy procedure is an updated alternative to the customary 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 for 2 weeks. During the first 3 to 5 days you may experience some discomfort, however walking or taking a light pain reliever such as Motrin will relieve any discomfort.
