Why should you get treated at the Vein Treatment Center in New York?

Studies show that up to 70% of American women, and almost 30% of all men develop varicose veins or spider veins; However, only one third of them actually get treated. If you have varicose or spider veins, you may have heard of reasons that would make you wary of treatment. ‘You need surgery, that can be scary’ – Now that is one of the most common reasons. Not anymore! Our Vein Treatment Center in New York offers comfortable, minimally invasive non surgical options for treating varicose and spider veins. ‘Do you think it is worth the time?’ – this may be another reason for delaying treatment. Firstly, modern procedures are a lot quicker than you might think – most of them can be done in under an hour. As to whether it is worth it, you need to understand why treating varicose and spider veins is not to be taken lightly. Read on to find out more!

Understanding varicose and spider veins

Why should you get varicose veins and spider veins treated, in the first place? It turns out, these vein issues are not merely cosmetic – they can signal the presence of a more complex underlying condition called chronic venous insufficiency (CVS). The veins in your legs contain small valves, which automatically shut when blood moves up towards your heart. This prevents blood from falling back into the legs due to gravity. In CVS, these valves are defective. The result? Blood does not move back efficiently to the heart, and instead begins to collect in your leg veins, causing them to expand under pressure. This expansion is what causes the veins to bulge out and throb, leading to varicose veins. The excess blood can also force the formation of tiny, new, defective veins that are spider like in appearance – hence the name spider veins.

CVS can be associated with extremely uncomfortable symptoms – swollen ankles, aching feet and fatigue that decrease the quality of life. Left untreated, CVS only worsens, and the pressure of pooled blood can have drastic consequences. These include leg ulcers, uncontrolled bleeding, and in some cases, even blood clots. So even if your varicose and spider veins do not have any associated symptoms, it is always best to have a vein specialist evaluate the degree of CVS present – and have it treated if required.

 

What to expect when you visit the vein treatment center in New York

Consult with leading vein specialists

All doctors at our Vein Treatment Clinics are board certified in venous medicine, and have been chosen based on merit and their skill in this field. Our vein doctors in NY have pioneered some of the latest advances in this field, and are nationally recognized for their expertise.  Dr. Michael Nguyen trains doctors around the world in developing skills for minimally invasive vein treatment. Dr. Namrata Khimani specializes in treating vein diseases in women, particularly during and after pregnancy. Dr. Juan Montoya is a skilled vascular surgeon with several years of experience in treating complex venous diseases.

At your initial consultation, you will meet with one of the above doctors, who will examine you and find out about your history and symptoms. Your vein doctor will then determine if you need an ultrasound, to look at the status of the valves in your veins.

Experience state of the art, minimally invasive treatment

Based on your symptoms and ultrasound report, your vein doctor will customize a treatment plan that suits your needs. Rest assured, your vein treatment plan will only include minimally invasive procedures that need very little down time. This is less traumatic than having a tooth removed – and it takes practically the same amount of time! You may require one (or more) of the following:

Options for varicose veins

  • Radiofrequency Ablation: The varicose vein doctor numbs your skin with local anesthetic and makes a small incision over the defective vein. A radiofrequency catheter is inserted into the vein, and heat applied through this destroys the vein from within.
  • Endovenous Laser Vein Ablation: Laser treatment is practically the same as RFA, except that a laser fiber is used instead of a radiofrequency catheter.
  • Venaseal: This is one of the most advanced procedures that avoids even the anesthetic and incision. Medical grade glue is injected into your vein at various points, and seals it off.
  • Clarivein: Another recent procedure that avoids the incision. A tiny rotating device, which is implanted into your vein, releases a medicated solution in all directions within the vein. This causes the vein to scar, seal off, and eventually disappear.

Options for spider veins

  • Sclerotherapy: The spider vein doctor injects the medicated solution (sclerosing agent) directly into the defective vein, which causes it to scar it and seal off. This is generally employed for smaller veins.
  • Varithena: This is similar to scleotherapy, and can be used for slightly larger spider veins. Medicated foam is injected into your veins, which again helps it scar and seal off.

Most procedures are covered by insurance, and we accept all major insurance carriers, including Medicare.
