Endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO) of the veins of the lower extremities in Moscow
Endovasal (endovenous) laser obliteration of the veins of the lower extremities or abbreviated EVLO of the veins of the legs is a modern way to eliminate varicose veins of the lower extremities - a disease that affects a huge number of people. Despite the huge number of means and methods of treating major varicose veins, this problem can be completely eliminated only with the help of endovascular intervention.

If stem varicose is not treated, it can lead to serious complications. The most formidable of them is thrombophlebitis, which can lead to thromboembolism of the pulmonary artery and instant death.
Over the years, methods of combating varicose veins have improved and improved. Large classical surgical interventions are now practically not used (I want to believe it ...), because they have many side effects and are hard to tolerate by patients. Vascular surgeons and phlebologists have developed new minimally invasive methods of treatment, extremely effective, which do not have a traumatic effect on healthy tissues.
Laser obliteration of veins in the clinic of phlebology "MIFTS"
One of such innovative methods of treatment of varicose veins is endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO), the price of which is still not so high, and the results of treatment can be seen almost immediately. This technique has completely eliminated the varicose veins of many patients in our center.
Endovenous laser obliteration (EVLO) of veins is a method of treating varicose dilated trunk veins of the lower extremities, which uses a special light guide that acts by laser radiation on the varicose vein wall. A laser light guide is inserted into the vein and acts on its inner sheath. It turns out a kind of “burn” of the vein wall, due to which sclerosis develops on the laser-affected area, the lumen of the vein closes and its complete resorption occurs in the future. After such an operation, you should not worry that blood will not move in the lower limb. Endovasal laser venous obliteration does not impair blood flow. It will be carried out through deep veins, fortunately, they are enough to compensate, while the leg does not suffer.
How does vein sealing during laser obliteration
Endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO), the video of which can be easily found and viewed on the pages of our website, is carried out only in specialized phlebological centers by experienced doctors. Our phlebologists perform such operations several times a day, so there is no doubt in their skill.
What equipment is used to perform operations at a level such as endovasal laser obliteration in Russia? This is a very important issue. More recently, Russian phlebologists used only domestic laser generators. And now, several years ago, the latest laser systems of the German company Biolitec appeared in Russia, which greatly simplified the work of surgeons and improved the quality of the procedures themselves.
Biolitec laser generator that we use for EVLO
And now, only with the help of the latest technologies, an endovenous laser obliteration is performed in our center. The price of this procedure mainly consists of the cost of innovative foreign equipment, disposable supplies and the hands of doctors who perform it.
German firm Biolitec also developed special radial light guides. They were immediately taken on board by the leading centers of phlebology, including our clinic. This development allows you to coagulate veins of absolutely any diameter and, which is extremely important for patients, make the procedure absolutely painless.
The use of a new radial fiber called Radial Fiber has significantly reduced the time of the operation. Endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO), the cost of which makes it available to most of our patients, is now much faster, because this unique light guide propagates light beams to all 360 degrees. At the same time, not a point effect is produced on the vein wall, as during the operation of the old end fiber, but uniform throughout the entire area affected by varicose veins.
The treatment of varicose veins with a laser has certain indications. These include:
- main varicose veins with the defeat of the valve apparatus in the basins of the large and small subcutaneous veins
- varicose veins on the thigh and lower leg
- secondary varicose veins after a deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities (with complete recanalization of the deep venous system)
- acute thrombophlebitis in basins of large or small subcutaneous veins
- trophic skin disorders, including trophic ulcers
- presence of thrombophilia in the patient - in this case, the risk of thromboembolism is significantly increased;
- chronic arterial ischemia of the tissues of the lower extremities - in the postoperative period, ischemia may increase, which leads to adverse consequences;
- the inability to conduct an active lifestyle of the patient after surgery, since this is required by the postoperative period;
- inflammatory process in the zone of the forthcoming surgical intervention - this can lead to the spread of infection during the operation and sepsis.
During the operation, our vascular surgeons make a small puncture of the skin, and all manipulations are carried out under the supervision of an ultrasound machine. In this regard, there are no terrible scars on the patient's skin after the endovasal laser obliteration was performed. Photos of the lower limbs of patients who went through this can be viewed on this page of our website.
Endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO) in Moscow is carried out in specialized centers of phlebology or vascular surgery. There are not many such centers. The patient can choose which clinic to go to. You just need to find out a few things:
- What equipment is used in this clinic.
- What fibers are working for doctors.
- What kind of work experience does the phlebology center have?
- What guarantees does this clinic provide?
The prices for the elimination of varicose veins using the endovenous laser obliteration procedure are strictly fixed in our clinic, and therefore, turning to us, patients can count on high-quality service, treatment and affordable cost. And remember that a timely visit to a doctor will completely cure the disease and avoid its relapse.
The cost of the endovenous laser obliteration procedure at the Moscow Innovation Phlebology Center is 59500 rubles. This price includes: local anesthesia, disposable laser fiber, consumables, dressing procedures and observation during the year with ultrasound at each visit.
Cost (price) of service
For the convenience of our patients, we work with banks that offer credit lines. Also in our center there is a flexible system of discounts and installments. Payment by Visa and Mastercard is possible. At the end of the course treatment, the patient is issued a package of documents for submission to the tax office for tax deduction.
This surgical procedure is remarkably tolerated by patients. It does not require specific training and stay in the hospital after the operation. Already on the day of the intervention the patient goes home and continues to do what he likes.
Immediately after the surgical intervention, a compression bandage is applied to the patient. It is suggested that you resemble it about 40 minutes.
The only thing that is required from the patient in the postoperative period is the use of special compression jersey. The patient wears stockings for 2-3 weeks, they are allowed to take pictures at night. There are no other restrictions.
After the procedure, the specialists of the center observe the patient's condition all the time, periodically perform ultrasound of the extremities. Ultrasound examination is necessary in order to check whether everything is in order with the venous network in the patient after the intervention.
The vast majority of patients do not experience any pain or discomfort after surgery. In a small part of patients, local pain is observed at the sites of miniflebectomy. It passes quickly and is easily removed with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, for example, ibuprofen or diclofenac.
Special studies have been conducted around the world to determine the risk of possible complications after this intervention. It turned out that the percentage of complications is extremely small and amounts to one to two percent. These figures speak for themselves, because the percentage of complications after conventional operations on varicose veins is much higher.
Possible complications after EVLO:
- thrombophlebitis of the operated site;
- burns tissues around the veins;
Side effects include the formation of hematomas and ecchymoses after surgery. They are not at all dangerous and disappear without a trace after a while even without the use of any means.
To find out how the feet look after they are made endovenous laser obliteration (EVLO), photo or a history of illnesses can be viewed on the Internet, special brochures of vascular centers and medical journals.

This technique has clear advantages over other methods of treatment.
Here are the main ones:
- there is no need for general or spinal anesthesia, which makes the procedure safe for the patient;
- conducted local anesthesia makes the operation completely painless;
- There are no cosmetic defects after surgery, as there is no need to make incisions on the skin;
- Do not go to the hospital for treatment;
- mild postoperative course;
- after the operation, disability is not lost;
- There is no need to rehabilitate the patient after treatment;
- there are no significant side effects;
- the risk of complications is extremely small.
Endovenous laser obliteration (EVLO) is the safest treatment for varicose veins. Compared to conventional surgery, it is an effective and minimally invasive treatment method used to treat patients with varicose veins in all progressive countries of the world.
If someone else has not decided to use an innovative method of treatment, like endovasal laser obliteration, which patients' reviews are only good, it is worth calculating how much effort, time and money is spent on conventional means for therapy.
Often, endovenous laser obliteration of veins is much more beneficial. The cost of various drugs is quite high, and you need to take them almost constantly, sometimes all your life, which is completely unprofitable. Before performing this procedure, the best doctors of our clinic will examine the patient, determine the need for surgery, exclude the presence of contraindications and establish the amount of surgical intervention.
At a specialist consultation, you can ask all your questions. If the patient agrees to perform such an effective operation as endovasal laser obliteration, the contract price is calculated immediately.
Feedback from our patient about the endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO) performed at the MIFTS Center.
Sergeeva Nina Ivanovna. 20.08.2019 With thanks!
Varicose veins on the shins of the left leg appeared a long time ago, more than 10 years ago. Concerned about bursting pain and inflammation at the site of vein expansion. Especially all these inconveniences were manifested in the summer in warm and hot weather. I didn’t know how and where to place my foot to reduce these manifestations. A year ago, in the summer of 2018, I decided for myself that we should start looking for a medical center for phlebology. And the right information came by itself. In the newspaper AiF in November 2013 I read the article “Doctor Laser” by phlebologist Dmitry Fedorov, a leading specialist at the Medical Innovation Phlebological Center. In this article, the author talked about the dangers of varicose veins, about treatment methods, about the historical development of the use of a laser device for use by phlebologists, about the modern miracle laser that is used in this medical center and allows you to perform operations on the veins without leaving any marks and age spots on skin. After reading the article, I immediately decided for myself - I need this medical center. On the site of the IIFC, I got acquainted with information about it.
In February, 2019 came to see Artyom Yuryevich Semenov with the firm determination to do the operation. Ultrasound findings confirmed the need for surgery. Artyom Yuryevich showed on the diagram all the venous expansion sites where the laser obliteration operation should be performed, told how the operation will be performed, showed individual consumables that will be used during the operation, answered all questions. The operation was performed under local anesthesia, almost painlessly. During the operation, the doctor commented on all stages. The atmosphere in the operating room is business, calm and comfortable. Doctors worked clearly and smoothly. Everything went well. The next day - inspection and dressing. Six months after the operation. No footprints. And most importantly - there is no constant inflammation on the lower leg.
Such a present I made myself for the 70 anniversary. Many thanks to the doctors and nurses. Professionalism and attentive attitude towards patients distinguishes MIFC employees. Thank. With respect and gratitude, Sergeeva Nina Ivanovna. 20.08.2019
Feedback from our patient from Moscow about endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO).
Alena, 43 year, Moscow.
She had varicose veins for ten years. During this time I tried various ointments, cream and folk remedies. Effect practically was not. For a long time I did not know what endovasal laser obliteration (EVLO), Wikipedia prompted. At first she doubted for a long time, but then, realizing that the next expensive remedy did not help, she decided. I thought that it would definitely not be worse. I have never regretted that I did this operation: endovenous laser obliteration. I had to wear a little compression stockings, but it's just nothing. 3 years have passed since then, I feel great, I run almost like in my youth - there is neither fatigue nor puffiness. Alena, 43 of the year, Moscow.

Marina, 28 years old.
After a severe pregnancy, varicose veins appeared on the legs. I tried to get rid of it myself, looked for information on the Internet, asked friends and acquaintances. On one of the sites I learned that there is such an operation as endovasal laser venous obliteration. I looked at the reviews, consulted with relatives and decided to try. As soon as I found out that an endovenous laser obliteration is being performed in Moscow at your center, I immediately made an appointment. It’s even difficult to call it an operation. The whole procedure took about an hour. During this time, I got rid of varicose veins and was already at home in the evening and played with the child. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Marina, 28 years.
