Treating Varicose Veins with Endovenous Laser Vein Therapy

Laser treatments have revolutionized the way we treat many various medical conditions. Fortunately, we now can use lasers for the treatment of vein disease, too. Previously, varicose vein treatment required patients to be hospitalized while vein stripping surgery was performed.

Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), is performed in order to close the diseased vein using ultrasound guidance. With this ultrasound guidance, Dr. Cutchen places a long thin laser fiber into the length of the vein being treated. Once the fiber tip is positioned, a local anesthetic is injected so that it surrounds the length of the vein. The laser is activated and pulled back through the vein, burning and closing the vein as it moves. Veins that are treated are then left in place and will disappear on their own during the next 6-12 months. The remaining superficial, bulging veins can be removed with a simple procedure called Ambulatory Phlebectomy.

How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost?

It is important to note that most insurance plans will cover vein treatment if it is considered medically necessary. Varicose veins are typically accompanied by discomfort, pain, heaviness, swelling at the ankles, and bulging which make it medically necessary to treat them. This is great news for the patients when looking at the treatment costs.

Although the cost of any treatment will vary by geographical location, the experience of the provider, and the size of the area being treated, the average cost for Endovenous Laser Vein Therapy in the United States is $1500 – $3,000. While that is a very large price range, the amount you’ll pay for your EVLT depends on how many veins are treated and your insurance coverage. Many insurance providers offer full or partial coverage of EVLT, when it’s deemed medically necessary. You’ll need to have ultrasound scans that show venous insufficiency or venous reflux disease to obtain insurance coverage. The best way to determine your out-of-pocket expense is to schedule an in-person consultation with Dr. Robert Cutchen. He will be able to propose an individualized treatment plan for you, and his experienced staff will provide your expected out-of-pocket costs based on your deductible, etc.

“I could not be happier with the services provided by Dr. Cutchen’s and his entire staff. Everyone treated me with respect and cared for the improvement of my veins and I never felt like “just another number”. Follow up care was great. The office manager is really easy to work with and never caused me any issues. Overall- this is the place to be treated!” *
