Dr. Steve Elias - How have minimally invasive procedures changed vein treatment?

Read Transcript

The development of minimally invasive vein surgery, or minimally invasive vein treatment has allowed us over the less 10 to 12 years, to be able to treat patients in a way that does not affect their lifestyle that much, minimal pain, minimal bruising and allows them to get back to their lives much sooner than the traditional surgery.

Also it's allowed more patients to seek treatment, because now we have options where patients don't need to be in bed, patients don't need to take pain medication and patients don't need to curtail their activities, so with minimally invasive vein procedures, we've been able to help patients look better, feel better, take care complications and get back to their lives much sooner than traditional procedures.
