Dr. Navarro describes the best candidates for the endovenous laser treatment for varicose vein removal.
The candidates will be any woman that has a failure of the main vein in the leg, the greater saphenous vein or the lesser saphenous vein. All think where the same patients that were candidates for the old procedure, ligation and stripping.
The procedure usually lasts between half an hour and 45 minutes, and after these 45 minutes, we wrap the leg and you go out walking and back to your normal life.
