"No-Knife Endovenous Laserâ„˘ is a technique designed to treat varicose veins without leaving scars," says Dr. Greuner, a leading New York cardiovascular surgeon and the developer of the new method.
Online PR News – 05-February-2014 – New York, NY – NYC Surgical Associates managing director Dr. David Greuner is flying to Los Angeles to appear on the award winning T.V. show The Doctors. The segment, which will be broadcast soon will feature No-Knife Endovenous Laserâ„˘ a scarless treatment for varicose veins which was invented by Dr. Greuner. â€śThis new technique, also known as No-Knife EVLTâ„˘ avoids the small scars typically left by other varicose vein treatments. It is especially suitable for women and men with darker skin tones, like myself,â€ť says Dr. Greuner.
The Doctors story will show Dr. Greuner performing No-Knife EVLTâ„˘ on a female patient who developed unsightly and painful varicose veins after having her second child. Dr. Greuner and his patient will reveal her results in front of a live audience.
â€śWith conventional laser and radio frequency vein treatments a small incision is made and a sheath is used to pass a radio frequency or laser catheter into the blood vessel. The incision ultimately leaves a 3-10 mm scar,â€ť says Dr. Greuner. â€śWhile this scar is insignificant in patients with fair skin, a small scar can be a significant drawback for those with darker skin types who may be prone to hyperpigmentation, or dark discoloring at incision sites and for those prone to keloid formation. Younger women of all skin types wish to avoid even the smallest scars on their legs.â€ť
â€śInstead of making an incision with a scalpel, a small needle is used to enter the vein using ultrasound guidance. I then introduce a very thin laser fiber using the most modern laser technology available. This laser fiber is specially engineered to be able to fit directly through the needle, and the small entry point will fade within a brief period.â€ť
