Duncan J. Belcher, MD
How can varicose veins be treated?
Endovenous laser therapy has been developed to treat chronic venous insuffciency by delivering laser energy through a small puncture in the leg to close the diseased vein. No surgery is required, the entire procedure can be performed in less that one hour in our office. During thte procedure, you are awake and your leg is anesthetized. A thin laser fiber is inserted into the greater saphenous vein in your thigh. Our physician will then deliver the laser energy through the fiber and into the vein, causing the vein to close.
The Connecticut Center for Advanced Vein Therapy (CCAVT) is located in the Middlebury office of Diagnostic Radiology Associates at The Turnpike Office Park, 1579 Straits Turnpike. Consultations with Dr. Belcher and Dr. Eric Hyson are available by calling CCAVT at 203-758-1980.
