Dr Paraskevas says recent advances have proven that endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is now a viable alternative to vein stripping.
The procedure is considered as effective as vein stripping with fewer complications and can be performed in a private setting under local anaesthesia.
EVLA was introduced in the mid-1990s, adopted by most phlebology practices in Australia by the mid-2000s and approved under Medicare in Australia in 2008.
