Endovenous Thermal Ablation (EVTA) is the single most important advance for treating varicose veins in a century! Previously, one would be exposed to the risks of both surgery and general anesthesia for vein stripping, followed by a painful recovery with permanent scars.

Approximately 15 years ago EVTA was developed. This innovative process involves threading a small fiber into the diseased saphenous vein hidden below the surface, positioning it properly, and then slowly withdrawing the fiber with thermal energy turned on. Just as a dentist numbs a tooth, local anesthesia is first applied to make this a painless procedure.

When combined with simultaneous UGS for surface branches, this frequently eliminates the need for multiple treatment sessions with a 95% success rate.  VCOC is proud to offer VenaCure EVLT treatment to the entire Orange County area. Contact our vein center in Irvine for more info on VenaCure EVLT.
