Patients who live in Castro Valley and have varicose veins have a great treatment option available.
Dr. Malvehy is one of the best vein doctors in the East Bay Area and San Francisco Bay Area with an office near Castro Valley in Pleasanton, on Stoneridge Mall Road.Laser varicose vein treatment is performed with EndoVenous Laser Ablation (EVLA, also called EVLT). Laser vein treatment is appropriate for patients with varicose veins, leg pain, venous ulcers, leg cramping, and other symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency.
Dr. Malvehy performs over 500 laser vein treatments every year for a variety of different conditions and seeks to make the process as comfortable for patients as possible, anticipating points of discomfort and mitigating them before the fact. Treatment typically takes 30-45 minutes and may be combined with minimally invasive varicose vein removal and sclerotherapy as part of your customized treatment plan. Using ultrasound guidance, local anesthetic is delivered around the target vein. A laser fiber optic is then inserted into the target vein and the vein is treated. The entire procedure is performed without making incisions in the skin and results in no scarring. Patients can drive themselves home after treatment and may immediatley resume normal activity. Dr. Malvehy may ask you to wear a compression stocking for 5-7 days depending on the size and location of the vein being treated.
Laser vein treatment is covered by most commercial insurance and Medicare for patients with pain, swelling, or venous ulcers. For patients with Kaiser Permanente insurance seeking laser varicose vein treatment, preferred pricing is available.
Patients coming from the Castro Valley should head east on I-580 and exit south on Foothill Road. Then turn left on Laurel Creek and our vein clinic is in the 3 story building located at 5700 Stoneridge Mall Road. The building will be on your left.
