EVLT – An easy way to get rid of varicose veins
With spring in the air and temperatures warming up don’t let varicose veins keep you from the activities you love. Many people with varicose veins find physical activities uncomfortable or even painful and don’t participate in hiking, swimming or going to the gym. At our free screening, you can find out if you would benefit from the non-surgical treatments ARA’s Austin Vein Center offers, such as Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). Our friendly staff can next make you an appointment with one of the excellent doctors at the Austin Vein Center. During your consult, your veins will be examined, the underlying condition found, and a minimally invasive treatment plan given. The goal is to relieve symptoms and get you back to activities you enjoy. Austin Vein Center doctors and staff want your legs to feel better.
Treatment for varicose veins and spider veins is non-invasive and accomplished with local anesthesia in most cases. There is little or no scarring with these procedures and not only will you be relieved of symptoms but you can get back to wearing the shorts and dresses you might be avoiding. Your legs will feel lighter and less swollen at the end of the day.
Interventional radiologist are experts when it comes to vascular techniques. Our board-certified physicians use X-rays, ultrasound and other imaging to thread a catheter through the body, usually an artery, to treat the source of disease internally, often avoiding major surgery. Some outstanding conditions that involve the expertise of an interventional radiologist are uterine fibroid embolization, stroke and carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic disease and a wide variety of very focused cancer treatments.
