EVLT Treatment in Los Angeles

Advancements in laser technology have replaced the need for invasive vein surgery.  Our Los Angeles vein center is now proud to offer several different methods of endovenous laser therapy to eliminate the root cause of your vein problems. Endovenous EVLT is the most sought after laser vein procedure in the United States and replaces traditional vein stripping techniques.  Performed under local anesthesia by our board-certified vein surgeons, EVLT can be performed under local anesthesia with minimal downtime or recovery.

STEP 1: Comprehensive Exam and Diagnostic Testing

The first step in treating your varicose veins includes a comprehensive medical exam by our doctors, vein-mapping, and Doppler ultrasound. Vein mapping and ultrasound allow us to individualize the treatment to your specific problems. Every patient has a different system of vein networks that requires a customized approach.

STEP 2: Insurance Authorization and Surgical Planning

Our patient care coordinators will work closely with our vein doctors and your PPO insurance carrier to determine your eligibility for insurance coverage based on a custom-tailored treatment algorithm. Necessary paperwork, pre-authorization, and eligibility requirements will be completed at this stage. Note: some insurance carriers may require 3 to 6 months of conservative therapy prior to surgery.

STEP 3: Outpatient Laser Therapy

EVLT laser therapy uses a vascular laser to target defective vein valves and veins in your legs and thighs. The procedure is performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center under local anesthesia. Since EVLT laser therapy does not require surgery, there is minimal downtime and you are able to walk or drive home immediately thereafter. The goal of EVLT laser therapy is to non-surgically reroute venous circulation from damaged veins to healthy veins.

STEP 4: Post-laser Ultrasound

Within a week of your laser therapy, we recommend a diagnostic follow-up so that our vein doctors can check your legs and determine whether the laser therapy was successful. Ultrasound takes minutes to perform and is painless.
