NO PAIN, NO VEIN! Invasive Vein Stripping Surgery a Thing of the Past

August 09, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
ATLANTA, GA – August 9, 2007 – It affects an estimated 40% of women and 25% of men: knotted, twisting varicose veins that envelop the legs and cause great discomfort. Sufferers often experience sensations of pain, burning and throbbing, and if left untreated, varicose veins can lead to more serious medical complications.

Oh2 Medical Spa offers the nearly pain-free alternative known as EVLT, which enables patients to escape the discomfort and embarrassment associated with this all too common problem. This groundbreaking procedure utilizes a laser to eliminate varicose veins. Time Magazine recently declared EVLT as “One of the most amazing medical inventions of the year.”

Dr. Darrell Caudill, a board-certified cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon with over 40 years of medical experience is one member of the oh2 team using EVLT.

“The results of EVLT are significantly better than those of past procedures,” says Caudill. “There are fewer side effects, complications and less downtime with this procedure. EVLT only requires local anesthesia and is nearly painless. The cost of EVLT is also significantly less than other methods of vein removal. There are other methods out there, but this is by far the best I’ve seen.”

There have been over 70,000 EVLT procedures performed to date. EVLT is quickly becoming THE safe and effective alternative to surgery. Treatment is typically completed in less than an hour with minimal pain and side effects.

Some benefits of EVLT over traditional methods include:

• Performed under local anesthesia by a doctor in the doctor’s office
• Up to 98% success rate
• Instant relief of symptoms – with little or no pain
• Leaves no scars
• Covered by most insurance providers

Those who suffer from varicose veins no longer need to hide their legs and fret over potentially painful surgery. The oh2 Medical Spa provides this new alternative treatment that offers minimal side effects with maximum results.
