Endovenous Laser Ablation
Goldman Vein Institute offers endovenous laser ablation to treat varicose and spider veins for patients in and around Jupiter, Wellington and Miami.
Endovenous laser ablation is performed on the saphenous and truncal veins in the legs. ELT is a recent FDA-approved procedure done with no surgery, no downtime, and it is performed in our Jupiter, Wellington and Miami offices. In fact, in a recent research study, it was found that endovenous laser ablation has a 98 percent success rate.
How is Endovenous Laser Ablation Performed?
The laser procedure is performed on the deeper varicose veins. This procedure only requires the use of a local anesthetic to numb the area of the leg. Guided by the ultrasound, Dr. Goldman inserts a laser fiber into a catheter in the abnormal vein. The laser fiber is used to seal the vein to relieve the pressure and backflow.
The laser procedure takes less than an hour in, and is performed in our Jupiter, Wellington and Miami offices. Often times, the laser treatment replaces the older method of surgically removing the vein. Dr. Goldman has done thousands of these procedures, all with excellent results.
How Much Does Endovenous Laser Ablation Cost?
Again, some patients are eligible to be covered by insurance. All of the payment options can be discussed at the end of your consultation in either our Jupiter or Wellington office.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime with this procedure, so you can go back to your normal routine. Since Dr. Goldman will numb part of the leg, it is not recommended that you drive up to 24 hours after treatment. Some bruising and swelling may occur, but this should subside shortly. Most Jupiter, Wellington and Miami endovenous laser ablation patients recover very well from the laser treatment, and any pain can be lessened with plenty of walking and gentle analgesics.
After treatment, you can expect the aching and pain in your legs to be significantly reduced.
