Q&A — Will EVLA Surgery Help?


Ask Our Long Island Vein Doctor

Q: I have severe reflux on both saphenous veins and Femoral vein. Doctor says surgery on saphenous veins is going to help but I don’t see how since I still have valve problem on femoral vein, and blood is still going to leak down. Please help me understand.

A: The majority of your symptoms are coming from the superficial veins and can easily be dealt with ablation. Taking care of the majority of the problem will be better than not addressing any of it and we have seen cases where after the superficial vein is closed, the deep vein reflux lessens or is eliminated.
