As mentioned yesterday, we're always happy to see the doctors in our network gain attention in the local news. Of course, that means we're really happy to see a report about a great new diode laser vein treatment that is associated with tests done by two different doctors in our network.
The report in BioOptics World discusses a new vein treatment called the biolitec ELVeS PL diode laser which uses an intense laser that has significantly greater absorption by water than lasers currently being used for vein treatment. The short story for patients is that this results in a more efficient, more comfortable experience for the patient who is getting treated for varicose veins.
The article announced that two differe "prominent" doctors in America had reported successful results in testing out the treatment (which has been used in Europe for the last two years). The first doctor is Lowell S. Kabnick who was the founder of the Vein Institute of New Jersey and is now the Director of the New York University Vein Center. The second doctor is Edward Mackay, a vein specialist working in Florida.
Both of these doctors have contributed greatly to vein treatment development over the years. This new procedure could well be the next big thing in venous care and these are the vein surgeons that are leading the way.
Question of the Day: Do you believe that this new laser will replace or supplement the ery popular VNUS Closure Fast procedure?
