In the past, the most common way to treat venous insufficiency was with surgery. Old surgical techniques involved stripping the vein from the body, which required an operating room, general anesthesia, surgical risk, scarring, significant discomfort, a great deal of pain, and a long recovery time. With today’s minimally invasive treatment innovations, resolving problem veins is incredibly different.
Minimally Invasive Techniques Are The New Standard
Today, the standard of care is vein treatment that is minimally invasive, quick, convenient, and much easier on you. The results are excellent. Dr. Gilvydis uses a number of innovative techniques to resolve your problem veins quickly and safely. Best of all, you’ll enjoy your daily activities with healthier, more attractive legs than you may have thought possible.

for Venous Insufficiency
- Ultrasound Vein Mapping
Northern Illinois Vein Clinic uses the most advanced hardware and software to map the venous system and identify which veins need to be treated.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
From inside the vein, light energy changes the inside of the vein wall, causing the vein to close up and eventually be absorbed into the body. Dr. Gilvydis is among the most experienced EVLA physicians in the Midwest.
In conjunction with EVLA, we can inject — under either light or ultrasound guidance — a foam or liquid sclerosing agent to close down varicose vein branches, smaller varicose veins and reticular spider veins.
