Endovenous Laser Treatment #3156


Endovenous Laser Treatment #3156

Our patient had his greater saphenous vein (GSV) treated with a laser today. The procedure took about 1 hour. Afterwards he put on his compression stockings and walked on our treadmill for 15 minutes. He will return in one week for a follow up ultrasound that will confirm the GSV is closed. He will wear his compression stockings for a total of two weeks and continue to exercise by walking 10 to 15 minutes a couple times a day.
