Video Overview

Hello, my name is Dr. Joel Erickson. I'm a board certified interventional cardiologist and I'm the owner and medical director at Laser Light Treatment Center. I've been in practice for 24 years. What is laser vein ablation? Fixing leg veins involves closing or destroying abnormal veins. Laser vein ablation is the most reliable and dependable means of getting a leg vein closed. It's a no downtime procedure that uses a needle, a wire, a catheter, and a laser fiber. Getting that laser fiber inside the vein--POOF! The vein can be destroyed, efficiently, quickly, and basically 100% reliably.
