Endovenous Laser Ablation:
A Brief Guide


Endovenous thermal ablation techniques utilize different methods to safely and permanently heat-seal improperly functioning veins.

Different methods exist, including:

  • Laser Ablation
  • Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Steam Ablation

In my practice, I utilize Endovenous Laser Ablation. Research and my own experience have shown this to be a method that is both very safe and very effective at closing off incompetent segments of superficial veins.
