How Does a Vein Doctor in New York Treat Varicose Veins? Medical Group Answers

April 24, 2020

Diagnosis of Vein Disease by Vein Doctor in New York

People are often scared or uncertain about consulting a vein specialist or vein doctor. You may be concerned that treating vein disease may include surgical procedures. However, you can rest assured that varicose vein surgery is the historical method of treating vein disease and is no longer favored by vein doctors and vein centers. These days the best vein doctors in New York would treat varicose veins and spider veins using the latest minimally invasive treatments.

Before your vein doctor in New York can treat vein disease, they will have to diagnose the root cause of your spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins may be purely cosmetic. However, varicose veins are usually caused by underlying chronic venous insufficiency, a medical condition in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins. The continued pressure of accumulated blood in your leg veins leads to the formation of varicose veins and spider veins.

If you have varicose veins and spider veins, the best vein doctor in New York will first diagnose the root cause of your vein disease. During the initial consultation, the vein doctor will examine your spider veins and varicose veins to look for signs and symptoms of vein disease. Following that, the vein doctor will use Duplex Ultrasound, which is a vascular imaging method that allows the vein specialist to visualize the blood flow in your deep veins. By examining the blood flow in your saphenous veins, the vein dr or phlebologist will determine if you have underlying venous insufficiency.

Once the Manhattan vein specialist understands the root cause of your spider veins and varicose veins, they will curate the best minimally invasive plan for varicose veins treatment in Manhattan, NYC.

Varicose and Spider Veins | Vein Diseases

Radiofrequency Ablation Varicose Vein Treatment NYC

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment in NYC. During this vein treatment, the Manhattan vein doctor will create an incision on your skin and insert a catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged in place, the vein dr will inject local anesthesia to protect the surrounding tissues. Finally, the vein physician will activate the catheter to generate thermal energy, collapsing the saphenous vein’s walls. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Over time, the diseased vein will harden and get absorbed by the body.

Radiofrequency ablation is widely hailed as the best and most popular Manhattan vein treatment because it is non-surgical, and it causes minimal pain or discomfort. It also has a negligible risk of side effects, and you can get the procedure covered by insurance coverage because it’s medically necessary.

Endovenous Laser Ablation Varicose Vein Treatment NYC

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive Manhattan vein treatment. During this varicose vein removal procedure, the vein specialist will create an incision on your skin and insert a laser fiber hooked to a catheter (known as an endovenous laser) into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the endovenous laser is lodged in place, the vein physician will inject local anesthesia to protect the surrounding tissues and activate the endovenous laser. The laser fiber will generate laser energy to destroy the problematic saphenous vein. The accumulated blood will automatically flow to healthier veins to restore smooth blood circulation to the heart. The diseased saphenous vein will harden and get absorbed by the body.

Endovenous laser ablation is one of the best varicose vein treatments in NYC, and it’s just as effective as radiofrequency ablation. Furthermore, endovenous laser ablation is also completely safe, and it gets insurance coverage due to medical necessity. However, endovenous laser ablation causes more post-procedural pain and discomfort than radiofrequency ablation.

VenaSeal Varicose Vein Removal

VenaSeal is one of the latest minimally invasive vein treatments for varicose vein removal. During the VenaSeal vein treatment, the vein dr will inject a medical adhesive or vein glue into the diseased varicose vein. The vein glue will seal the walls of the saphenous vein, essentially shutting it down. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins while the sealed saphenous vein will gradually get absorbed by the body.

VenaSeal has an incredibly high 97% success rate with a negligible risk of side effects or complications. However, VenaSeal doesn’t get insurance coverage despite being medically necessary because the FDA has only recently approved its use and application. VenaSeal is currently one of the most expensive varicose vein treatments.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy for Superficial Varicose Vein Removal

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a varicose vein removal procedure for superficial varicose veins. After the primary vein treatment, the varicose vein doctor will create incisions on the surface of your skin to physically remove the superficial varicose veins left behind after the treatment. Ambulatory phlebectomy is safe, but it doesn’t get insurance coverage because it’s not medically necessary.

Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Treatment NYC

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment in NYC. During the sclerotherapy procedure, the vein dr will inject a medicine called sclerosant into your spider veins. Sclerosant fuses the spider veins’ walls, essentially turning them into scar tissues that gradually get absorbed by the body and fade away. Since sclerotherapy is also a cosmetic procedure, it’s not covered by medical insurance.

Post-Treatment Care: Compression Stockings & Exercise

After the varicose veins treatment in Manhattan, your vein doctor or vein clinic will offer some post-treatment advice. They will ask you to wear compression stockings for a few days or weeks to apply pressure on your veins and facilitate smooth blood circulation to the heart. They will also ask you to walk recently and engage in exercises that stimulate your calf muscles, such as yoga, running, swimming, and cycling.
