Endovenous Laser Therapy

Endovenous Laser Therapy

EVLT (Endovenous Laser Therapy) revolves around inserting a small laser fiber into the vein. Pulses of laser light are conveyed inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse. Dr. Donna D'Alessio performs this procedure under local anesthesia. Go her to read more about EVLT.

Radio Frequency Ablation

Radio Frequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) uses a small catheter that is inserted into the vein. The catheter then delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse, and seal shut. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Go here to read more about RFA.
