Board-certified Cardiologist and Vein Specialist Dr. Prem Kittusamy performs a treatment called Endovenous Laser Ablation. This highly effective precedure uses a laser to heat and close the diseased vein. After the vein closes, the body automatically routes the blood through your healthy veins. The procedure takes anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour and requires only a local anesthetic. In less than the time it takes to watch a movie, you can be completely rid of the source of your Varicose Veins!
