Patient came in with leg cramping and extreme discomfort in her legs. She was unable to do her normal activities such as walking and working out. She was treated with a procedure called the "No Knife Endovenous Laser". They utilize a special very thin laser fiber and the most modern laser technology available today. This laser fiber is able to fit directly through a needle, no larger than a needle typically used to draw blood. By using this method, the surgeons at NYC Surgical Associates are able to achieve the same success, without any evidence of a procedure being done in the vast majority of cases, even in patients more prone to abnormal scarring.
