Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) – Get Rid of Varicose Veins With No Surgery, Scar or Anesthesia
Procedures for EVLT

Endovenous Laser is a minimally invasive, clinically proven alternative to surgical vein stripping that effectively and safely treats varicose veins by using a laser fiber to deliver energy inside the vein, directly into the vein wall. The precise laser energy achieves optimal therapeutic effect while limiting collateral damage.

With over 70,000 procedures performed worldwide, and over 60 clinical articles documenting its efficacy out to five years, EVLT is the proven alternative.

Dr. John Tan has personally performed more than a thousand cases of Endovenous Laser Treatment with 99% success and no major side effect or complications.

This Video is an extract from a documentary shown on Channel U Singapore in 2003. Notice that the patient has EVLT of both legs done without any anesthesia or sedation. She was wide awake throughout the procedure and she was able to walk immediately afterwards.
What to Expect on the Day of Procedure
  1. Ultrasound examination to map out your vein
  2. Local anesthetic is applied. Sedation can also be given if you are needle phobic
  3. A thin laser fiber is inserted through a tiny entry point (usually near the knee)
  4. Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein
  5. You will be required to wear tight surgical stocking for 4-5 days
  6. Your normal day activity is then resumed. In fact, walking immediately after the procedure is encouraged (just avoid rigorous activities)
