If you suffer from aching legs or are unhappy about the appearance of varicose veins then you are not alone. Up to 40% of women and 25% of men will be affected at some time in their life. Contributing factors include pregnancy, sedentary professions, obesity and age. Spire Cheshire Hospital offers a minimally invasive procedure (EVLA) to treat varicose veins.
Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a quick, minimally invasive procedure
What is EVLA?
Endovenous laser ablation is a quick, minimally invasive procedure, which closes the varicose vein. At Spire Cheshire Hospital this procedure is performed under local anaesthetic in our minor treatment room. EVLA takes less than 30 minutes and patients can return home as soon as the procedure is finished. Normal activities can be resumed immediately and most patients are back to work within a day or two.
Patients choosing this treatment can benefit from the following advantages:
- A virtually pain free recovery
- Maximum patient comfort
- Short treatment times
- Little or no scarring
- Little or no post-operative bruising
- Excellent medical and cosmetic results
- Quick return to normal activities
At Spire Cheshire Hospital the EVLA procedure is carried out by our consultant vascular surgeons, assisted by experienced and committed nurses.
