What Are the Top Three Best and Worst Options for Varicose Vein Treatment Manhattan?

The best venous insufficiency and varicose vein treatment Manhattan are those that are non-surgical and minimally-invasive vein treatment methods such as radiofrequency ablation, VenaSeal, or varithena.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation starts with a local anesthetic, then a small catheter is inserted into the unhealthy vein, using ultrasound imaging to help the vein doctor guide the catheter to the right place. After a numbing solution is delivered to the vein, the catheter is activated and delivers thermal energy to the vein walls to close them down. The procedure has over 97% success rate, takes less than an hour at a vein center, is effective immediately, and is associated with minimal pain and discomfort.


VenaSeal is an FDA-approved vein adhesive used to seal the saphenous vein in the leg that causes varicose veins, and doesn’t require any local anesthetic. The VenaSeal glue closes the diseased vein within seconds, and this seal will eventually reroute the blood automatically through the healthy veins in your legs. This is also a vein treatment option that has little recovery time, is highly effective, and causes minimal discomfort, which allows patients to return to normal activities within a day after their appointment at a vein treatment clinic.


Varithena is a sclerotherapy foam injected by a vein doctor into the vein to reduce both the appearance and symptoms of large, bulky varicose veins. Similarly to the first two treatments mentioned, the procedure seals off the damaged veins then reroutes blood flow, takes less than an hour at a vein clinic, and there is no pain or discomfort involved.

Top 3 Worst Vein Treatment Options

Surgery was historically used to treat vein disease, but minimally-invasive technologies have quickly risen the ranks of preferred treatment options for both patients and vein doctors, as they are safer, easier for the patient and more effective. Here are some of the surgical procedures available for treating vein disease, but should be avoided as they are almost always not the recommended treatment method.

Vein Ligation

Vein ligation requires the tying of veins through a small incision in the skin to prevent pooling of blood. This is only done in cases where there is evidence of damage to the main saphenous veins that the varicose veins branch off of. The incision makes this an invasive vein treatment method, and leads to increased recovery time.

Venous Bypass Surgery

In venous bypass surgery, a surgeon uses a vein graft to create a new pathway for blood flow around a blocked vein. This is only used as a last-resort when all other vein treatments fail to bypass the most serious blockages due to venous insufficiency. As we’ve said time and time again, minimally-invasive vein treatment methods are always the better choice.


The word phlebectomy can be broken down into two parts: phleb (vein) and ectomy (surgical removal). Instead of treating the cause of varicose veins to return them to their normal size, a phlebectomy removes large varicose veins altogether. This procedure requires micro-incisions in the ѕkіn and a ѕmаll hооk is used to remove the veins, which is just as invasive and uncomfortable as it sounds. It leads to a lot of downtime for recovery, that minimally-invasive alternatives, which are much safer and more painless, don’t have.
