The endovenous laser ablation for varicose veins is the most contemporary method of treating varicose veins. The technique aims on the sublimation of the main vein that refluxes and it is impossible for the vein to propel the blood to the heart, causing the blood to stay in the veins of the legs, thus forming varicose veins.

The endovenous laser ablation cauterizes and closes the veins that cause the varicosities without removing them. That way we avoid post operative complications such as hemorrhage, bruising and pain. Furthermore, it has smaller percentages of relapsing or having complications such as thromboses, and it enables the patient to go back to his/ her daily activities immediately and have a flawless result. Lastly, the method is performed with high accuracy and safety, throughout every stage of the precedure, and the vein subterfuges through the use of the laser energy that is directed in the pipe of the vein. The technique of the endovenous laser ablation is extremely safe, it is recommended by the American association of vascular surgeons and the American Venous Forum contrary to the classic saphenectomy. The high specialization of the vascular surgeon on this particular method, in combination with the infrastructure of high technology that is required for its implementation, make the appearance of complications even more unlikely.
