EVLT in Sioux Falls, South Dakota (SD)
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a non surgical, non scarring varicose vein treatment alternative that does not require general anesthesia or hospitalization, takes less than an hour to perform and provides immediate relief with little to no pain during the procedure. Laser energy is used to target and seal problem veins, which reduces or completely closes the vein, improving appearance and reducing pain and discomfort.
A trained provider will use ultrasound imaging technology to map the veins in your legs and identify problem veins. Using a local anesthetic, the technician inserts the a thin laser fiber directly into the venous system. The ultrasound is used to guide the laser fiber into position and the energy then infiltrates the target area. This procedure generally takes less than one hour and is performed on an outpatient basis. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after receiving EVLT and will need to wear compression stockings for one week after the procedure. A follow-up visit is required approximately one week after treatment to assess progress and determine if touch-ups are needed.
The cost of endovenous laser treatment will depend on your geographical location, the number of veins and treatment areas to be included and your EVLT providers individual fees. In some cases, this procedure may be covered by medical insurance when required for the relief of painful symptoms often associated with varicose veins.

About that free screening…
If you have ever wondered whether or not your vein problems can be easily fixed, find out with a free screening at Physicians Vein Clinics.

Easy as 1, 2, 3
Your free screening consists of three steps:
- We will review your medical history and perform a visual exam of the problem area. If necessary, an ultrasound examination will be obtained to identify the underlying cause of your problem. The ultrasound diagnosis isn’t needed very often, but if it is, this is a separate diagnostic test that requires billing to your insurance.
- We will diagnose your vein issues and discuss expected outcomes with you.
- Dr. Hansen will perform a visual exam and talk over the next course of action with you. If it is determined that your case is medical in nature, we will schedule a consult that consists of mapping and drawing your veins to prove venous deficiency and submit it to your insurance company. If the problems are cosmetic, they will discuss costs and treatment options with you.
Once you decide to move forward with treatment, we will work around your schedule to perform the procedures. Each outpatient procedure is different, but you should expect to return to normal activities in no time with minimal discomfort. Your specific treatment expectations and after-care will be discussed in detail prior to your appointment. Our professional and friendly staff is here to answer all your questions and make your time with us comfortable.
