Schaumburg EVLT Treatment by Chicago’s Top EVLT Specialist, Dr. Doshi.

Endovascular Laser Treatment (EVLT) is a non-surgical venous therapy option that utilizes ultrasound imaging and laser fibers to map, heat and collapse a variety of bothersome varicose veins.

The major benefit of EVLT vein treatment is its short and nearly pain-free recovery that doesn’t leave any scars. This minimally-invasive procedure takes less than an hour and can be conducted under local anesthesia in outpatient clinics by various medical specialists, such as surgeons, radiologists and phlebologists. In other words, EVLT vein treatment negates the hassles of inpatient care.

Endovascular Laser Treatment is a type of venous ablation therapy that uses targeted laser energy to produce irreversible occlusion and, ultimately, disappearance of the vein. This process heals the vein without affecting any surrounding area, and helps resume normal blood flow through the body via healthy, well-functioning valves.

First, the area to be treated is numbed with the local anesthetic. Then, a carbonized, thin laser fiber tip is inserted into the vein using a special tube known as ‘sheath’. After positioning the tip properly, laser energy is applied in short pulses, which heats the varicose vein from within and causes it to shrink and seal shut.

Patients can resume their ambulatory movements immediately after the EVLT procedure. In fact, returning to normal daily activity right away is encouraged. However, you should avoid strenuous physical activities - like cardio workouts - for a month. Some bruising or soreness is expected for around a week after the procedure. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate some remaining discomfort.

My Doctor recommended that I go see Dr. Doshi after I had complained about my varicose veins and the pain they caused. Dr. Doshi and his staff were wonderful.
