Varicose Vein Treatments:
Thеrе аrе several effective treatment methods for patients with vаrісоѕе veins. Since each patient has unique venous pathways and unique medical history, our vein specialists in NYC don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach. An asymptomatic patient who seeks cosmetic vein treatment requires different procedures than a patient with ulceration, discoloration, or swelling.
Potential Treatments Include:
- Sclerotherapy: a liquid, foam, or pre-mixed foam injection that eliminates the vein
- Ablаtіоn: application of heat via radiofrequency or laser energy to collapse the vein
- Surgеrу: pulling (stripping) the varicose vein out of the body (phlebectomy)
- Elevating legs when resting or asleep
- Wearing compression ѕtосkіngѕ to minimize swelling and maximize circulation
NOTE: New York Vein Doctors generally recommend sclerotherapy or radiofrequency ablation to our varicose vein patients.
Is Varicose Vein Treatment Safe?
The vast majority of patients find varicose vein treatment convenient, safe, and effective. Discomfort and risk associated with treatment are now remarkably low. This is due in part to advances in minimally invasive vein treatment over the last 20 years. It’s also due to the expertise of vein doctors who favor these less invasive, more efficacious procedures. It’s important to choose a certified vein doctor to maximize safety and results. Our acclaimed vein center in New York offers insightful, innovative, and tailored solutions.
How Do Doctors Diagnose Venous Insufficiency and Varicose Veins?
Our vein doctors conduct a thorough exam that considers physical symptoms and medical history in your diagnosis. The physician will inquire about your priorities and concerns before customizing your treatment plan. Our highly trained team will also employ imaging tools like duplex ultrasound scanning if venous insufficiency is suspected. Our cutting-edge technology allows us to chart your unique venous anatomy, identifying faulty valves, blood clots, and connections between diseased and healthy veins.
