Is endovenous laser treatment common within the United States? Dr. Luis Navarro: Now it’s the main way of treating large varicose veins in which the main vein is involved. Not only in the United States, it has revolutionized the way of treating varicose veins since it can be done in the office under strictly local anesthesia in short period of time. You don’t need to be a trained surgeon and it’s minimally invasive. No cuts, just put, pass the laser with a needle or through a minimal 1/16th of an inch incision, we pass the laser fiber inside the leg, and the patient returns to their normal daily routine immediately. It’s exactly what medicine has been going over the last few years with minimally invasive procedures done at the office with a minor form of anesthesia.
