Endovenous laser ablation

Endovenous laser ablation is very similar to radio-frequency ablation, but instead of the radio waves, lasers are used to generate heat which seals the affected veins and redirects blood to healthy veins. Northway centres use a new generation of lasers, the latest, most efficient and safe tulip fibre.

Varicose veins are swollen, enlarged veins that most often occur on the legs and feet. They usually appear blue or purple in colour and can cause symptoms like aching, burning, or throbbing sensations in the legs, muscle cramps, swollen feet and ankles, and dry itchy skin over the affected vein. They can also lead to complications like leg ulcers and skin discoloration. If you have tried treatments like compression stockings, regular exercise and elevating the legs when resting and are still experiencing problems, then Endovenous Laser treatment may be the next step. Endovenous Laser Ablation seals off the affected veins, redirecting the blood flow to healthy vessels. The treatment can be performed under local anaesthetic and does not require any cuts to the skin. A needle is used to insert a very thin catheter which is passed along the length of the vein to the precise point where treatment is needed. An ultrasound scan is used to place the catheter accurately. The laser device will use heat to destroy the walls of the vein. You will most likely be able to go home the same day as your procedure, but you will have to wear bandages and stockings for several days afterwards. You will have to avoid standing for long periods and should rest with your legs elevated at first. A few days after your procedure you may experience a tightening sensation in the treated area. Most people do not need to take any time off work and can walk and carry on with normal activities right away.

10 years ago, I had my plastic surgery done by Dr Arunas Jankauskas. I am well satisfied; he did an amazing work and also saved my life. He is such a professional doctor I would highly recommend.  And I would like to say thanks to Dr Indre Sakalauskaite for doing another amazing plastic surgery for my cousin, well professional and very caring.  All for all my treatments included my teeth cleaning I am very satisfied. Northway Clinic will remain my one of the best.

Clinic in Vilnius – great, very clear and considering that English is not their first language I was impressed and never felt like there was any miscommunication. Very good service.

Amazing team work from the very beginning, the desk personnel and the doctor himself. I had an appointment with the trauma specialist. I can describe dr. Marius Sakalinis as a combination of highly skilled, competent knowledge and human potential. Success is guaranteed with such an amazing team! Wishing you to stay healthy. With best wishes, Janina Bisliene.

Thank you very much for those correspondence with tests results. I must say I’m really highly satisfied with the way you treat the client (like me) all the medical staff I’ve met were very nice and friendly to me and the check up results were very quick and efficient -including short explanation in English!
Thank you very much for your work and I definitely will recommend your clinic to the others.

I am very happy about my decision to go to Northway medical centre. I made this decision after long search and many considerations. M. Šakalinis is a truly expert in his field. When I arrived for surgery, I felt comfortable, I trusted him and the entire personnel. Thank you.

Amazing orthopaedist and traumatologist. This was the first doctor I met in my life who would make me feel so calm about my health issues after the appointment.

I really love to visit your centre! I am very grateful for the help I received from doctors and staff at the Fertility Treatment Centre. Top-level expertise and patient-oriented approach. Finally, my visit to gynaecologist has become pleasant 🙂

Very beautiful and comfortable premises, nice and highly skilled doctors, helpful and nice nurses. When I came to the centre, I felt like home. I was surrounded by an absolute care.

Surgery, my doctor and caring staff have exceeded my expectations. Services of top quality.

I will recommend to my friends and acquaintances. Reasonable prices for consultations. An orthopaedist and traumatologist explained me the diagnosis in every possible detail, many thanks.

Amazing doctors. They evaluated my condition, made an examination and treatment plan. Exams and tests are done very quickly. Excellent experience, thank you very much!

Wonderful doctor. I trusted him right away and did not regret. Dr. Jankauskas is an excellent professional. I will definitely return. Many thanks.
