Laser Vein Treatment
Treat Varicose Veins with Minimal Discomfort!
In the past, the most common way to treat varicose veins was with open surgery. Specifically, the surgical technique involved stripping the vein from the body. It involved a hospital, an operating room, general anesthesia, surgical risk, scarring, several days of recovery, discomfort, and a lot of time away from normal life. Also, it involved the risks associated with surgery, high rates of complication and early recurrences. Today, with endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), everything is different.
Minimally invasive treatment is the new standard.
Today, the standard of care for vein treatment is minimally invasive, convenient, quick and much easier on you. With EVLA, treatment is done in the office, without anesthesia or discomfort. After your treatment, you get up, go home and go about your life.
However, a key problem for vein physicians these days is that most people are still wary of vein treatment. But their concerns about pain, hassles and downtime are truly a thing of the past.
Treating vein problems from inside the vein.
At Gilvydis Vein Clinic in Geneva and Sycamore, Illinois, Rimas Gilvydis, MD uses EVLA to close down main superficial varicose veins. With this minimally invasive technique, Dr. Gilvydis threads a tiny catheter into the vein. (This is one reason why vein mapping is so important.) As he pulls the catheter out of the vein, an emitter delivers light energy to the vein wall, harming it and causing the vein to close down. (It is eventually absorbed into the body quite naturally.) Blood flow to the heart is then rerouted to deeper veins.
Because it is minimally invasive, EVLA has a low rate of complication. There is also less scarring and downtime than with open surgery. And Dr. Gilvydis performs the procedure right here at Gilvydis Vein Clinic for maximum convenience and privacy.
One treatment method for ensuring optimal outcomes.
Dr. Gilvydis’ state-of-the-art EVLA treatment is what sets him apart from other varicose vein practices. On the same day he is treating the large veins with EVLA, he will also treat the winding branches and tributary veins with EVLA. This results in an effective vein closure and reduces the need for numerous sclerotherapy treatments. Sclerotherapy will only be used to treat the very small spider veins or any few remaining veins that could not be accessed during EVLA.
Trust experience, skill and dedication to your best results.
One of the first specialists in the country to treat vein disease endovenously, Dr. Gilvydis has more than a decade of experience and more than 20,000 procedures to his credit.
