What is EVLA?
EVLA or Endovenous Laser Ablation is the minimally invasive procedure which is used to treat the varicose veins of the leg. In this procedure, laser energy is used to shrink, seal and shut the veins for a permanent basis.

In the procedure, a very thin fiber optic probe is passed through the abnormal vein and the heat of laser is delivered to the problematic vein to treat and eliminate the walls of the vein as a result body absorbs the tissue naturally.
After the treatment of damaged vein, the vein remains dysfunctional but the remaining blood circulation is rerouted to its normal flow means from healthy veins of legs to hearts and lungs.
