Looking for the best doctor for varicose veins in 2020? A medical center offers some advice

April 22, 2020

If you have ever searched for a ‘vein doctor near me’ on the internet, you know that you are going to be flooded with results. Obviously, you want to pick the best doctor for varicose veins and spider veins! So, how do you assess a vein doctor’s capabilities, and whether or not they are offering the best forms of vein treatment available? We share some tips below.

To get the best Varicose Veins treatment in Manhattan, choose a phlebologist.

A phlebologist is a vein dr who is experienced in handling vein diseases, like varicose veins and spider veins. Phlebologists may be qualified to treat vein diseases, based on their training or experience. Some may be cardiovascular experts who have had training in managing vein disease. Some doctors have special certifications accredited by the American Board of Vein Medicine. What is important is that they have had enough experience in varicose and spider vein treatment. Always choose a vein doctor who is board certified in their field – this ensures that they are at the top of their game.

Why is choosing a phlebologist important? It is not just about treating varicose and spider veins. An expert vein physician will also be able to detect the underlying problem, and offer the right form of treatment accordingly. Varicose and spider veins in legs are mostly caused by one single problem – chronic venous insufficiency. In this condition, the larger leg veins do not transport blood back to the heart efficiently, and the blood gets retained in the legs. This excess blood puts pressure on the vein walls, especially in the smaller blood vessels, causing them to expand and bulge beneath the skin (causing varicose veins), or get damaged and discolored (causing spider veins). So, unless the venous insufficiency is treated, your varicose veins and spider veins may recur.

Find a vein doctor who offers procedures that are considered the best Varicose Veins treatment in NYC?

Varicose veins removal does not require invasive surgery, like it did in the past. Expert vein doctors today prefer to use ‘minimally invasive procedures’. In these procedures, rather than actually removing the vein, the defective vein is blocked up from within, so that blood can no longer flow through it. The treated varicose veins become non-functional, and other blood vessels take over its job. This causes uncomfortable symptoms, such as pain or leg swelling, to resolve at once. The vein itself shrinks and disappears over a period of time.

Vein specialists use several methods to seal off the veins. These could include:

  • Heat: Radiofrequency ablation and Endovenous Laser ablation are techniques that deliver heat within the vein. This allows the vein walls to melt and seal off.
  • Superglue: VenaSeal is an advanced procedure that uses medical grade glue to block up the vein.
  • Sclerosant: This is a medicated solution that causes the vein walls to swell and stick together. For spider vein treatment, sclerosant can directly be injected into the vein. For larger veins, a catheter with a rotating tip is used – called ClariVein. This distributes the sclerosant evenly throughout the vein.

Why is minimally invasive treatment better than varicose vein surgery? For one, you avoid hospital admissions and lengthy workups. You can visit the vein clinic on the day of the procedure, and be out in a couple of hours. Secondly, these procedures require absolutely no recovery time – you can get back to your normal routine the same day! Lastly, these procedures are just as effective as surgery in eliminating problems caused by varicose veins, and give more pleasing esthetic results.
