yup its can be done with Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and the success rate is very high ( 94-97% ). Class II compression stocking is applied immediately after the procedure and after 4-6 weeks you'll will notice the clinical improvements.Complications are rare,less than 1%

Consult with your doctor first get opinions from 2-3 doctors if everyone agrees go for it.

There is also an equally effective endovenous procedure called the VNUS Closure procedure, where the laser fiber of the EVLA is replaced with a radiofrequency generating catheter.
