Frequently asked questions about vein treatment in Midtown Manhattan

Vein Treatment Clinic is one of the best vein clinics in Midtown Manhattan. Our vein clinic is close to Grand Central Station and Penn Station, making it ideal for those who are coming in from various corners of the state. Please call or schedule an appointment with our Manhattan vein treatment center if you have any concerns about spider veins, varicose veins, or other vein problems.

Having said that, let’s get to the primary point of this article. Recently, our vein doctors have been fielding a lot of questions about vein disease and vein treatments. We’ve come to realize that most people have some serious misconceptions about vein treatment in Midtown Manhattan. In this article, we want to answer some of the most persistent questions about varicose vein treatment in Midtown Manhattan.

Q1. Should I consult a vascular surgeon if I have small spider veins?

It doesn’t matter if you have small spider veins or large spider veins, the presence of spider veins at all is cause for concern. While you definitely don’t need to be alarmed, you should err on the side of caution and get checked up. In most cases, spider veins — dense clusters of blood vessels visible under the skin — are cosmetic. However, small spider veins may also be a warning sign of something more dangerous — vein disease.

Also known as venous insufficiency, vein disease is a condition that affects vein valves and blood vessels. The vein valves malfunction, which causes blood to flow backward and accumulate in leg veins due to the force of gravity. Over time, the continued accumulation of blood in leg veins leads to vein dilation and the eventual formation of spider veins and varicose veins. Vein disease is a chronic condition, and it gets worse with time.

Vein disease is a serious issue, but there isn’t enough awareness about it. In this article, we answer some of the most persistent questions about varicose vein treatment in Midtown Manhattan.

However, you should also avoid consulting vascular surgeons. If you have spider veins or varicose veins, please consult a vein doctor specializing in minimally invasive varicose vein treatments rather than vascular surgery.

Q2. Are protruding large veins dangerous?

Protruding large veins are called varicose veins, and they’re a definitive sign of vein disease. Varicose veins are blood vessels with excess blood accumulation. Varicose veins usually protrude out of the surface of the skin in dense and knotted ropes, often resembling tree trunks. Unlike spider veins, varicose veins are always caused by vein disease, making them dangerous.

Varicose veins are dilated blood vessels. As such, they’re prone to bursting upon impact, which can lead to profuse bleeding. Furthermore, the presence of varicose veins indicates you have advanced vein disease, which may also lead to complications like skin discoloration, skin disease, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

Q3. Should I consult a vascular surgeon for surgery?

You should never consider vascular surgery or a vascular surgeon for varicose vein treatments. Vascular surgery used to be the favored method of treatment several decades ago, before the development of advanced technologies. Vascular surgery required hospitalization, had a high risk of side effects and complications, and was relatively ineffective.

Instead of a vascular surgeon, you must find a vein doctor in New York. You should find a board-certified vein doctor specializing in the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. Furthermore, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have a negligible risk of side effects. As such, you must find a vein specialist with a perfect track record.

Q4. What is the best minimally invasive treatment for vein disease?

Radiofrequency ablation is widely considered the best minimally invasive treatment for vein disease. During the radiofrequency ablation process, the vein doctor will create an incision on the surface of your skin to insert a catheter. The vein doctor drives the catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged in the saphenous vein, the vein doctor applies thermal energy to collapse the vein, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

After the radiofrequency ablation, the vein doctor may treat the superficial varicose veins and spider veins on the surface of your skin. The vein specialist will inject a medicine called sclerosant into the blood vessels, sealing their vein walls and turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body.

Q5. Can treated veins relapse?

Yes, treated spider veins can relapse, especially if your vein specialist treats blood vessels without treating the underlying vein disease. You must find a vein specialist who diagnoses the root cause of spider veins and treats the underlying vein disease before treating the surface symptoms.

Q6. How can I find the best vein specialists and vein clinics?

The following are some of the factors to consider when looking for the best vein specialists and vein clinics in Midtown Manhattan, New York:

  • You must find a board-certified vein doctor with an exceptional educational background.
  • The vein doctor must have specialized training in vascular imaging and the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments.
  • The best vein clinics also have state-of-the-art infrastructure, with equipment such as ClariVein, ClosureFAST, and VNUS.
  • The vein clinic must have a perfect track record and rave reviews from their patients.
  • Finally, the best vein clinics must help you get optimal insurance coverage for your vein treatment in Midtown.
