Treat Deep Varicose Veins Without Surgery
If you are experiencing deep varicose veins, there could be a chance you would be a good candidate for endovenous laser treatment. Endovenous Laser Treatment (referred to as EVLT) is a quick, minimally invasive laser treatment that requires no hospitalization and no complicated surgery.
The entire procedure, from start to finish, takes about an hour and there is very little to no pain. A small optic fiber is inserted through a needle into the varicose vein under ultrasound guidance. The laser is activated and, as the optic fiber is removed from the vein, it heats and closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, the blood that was circulating through the vein is naturally re-routed to other healthy veins. Over time, the body absorbs the closed vein.
There are many causes for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins. Genetics, hormones of pregnancy, prolonged standing, and injuries are only a few of these causes. When you visit Dr. Daniel Mountcastle, not only will he treat you for your vein disorder, but he'll also help you to realize the initial cause of your disorder, which will help you to keep your legs healthy in the future.
Dr. Daniel Mountcastle serves the Palm Harbor, St. Pete, Largo, Sun City Center, Lakeland, Tampa, Isla Del Sol, Wesley Chapel, Sarasota, and Clearwater areas. He has 30 years of experience with vein treatment.
It’s important to understand that EVLT cannot treat veins that are too small, too twisted, or too close to the surface of the skin. This means the average EVLT patient will require sclerotherapy in conjunction with EVLT to treat the smaller veins.
