EVLT – endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins

In the UK, NICE has recommended that varicose veins should be treated primarily with endovenous thermoablation. EVLT is one of the methods of endovenous thermoablation.

At The Whiteley Clinic, we research all of the available techniques to see which of the many available that we recommend as part of The Whiteley Protocol®.

At the current time, our preferred endovenous thermoablation device in the Angiodynamics EVLT Venacure system.
