Far more than just a cosmetic problem, varicose veins signal an underlying circulation disorder.

The chronic form of vein disease known as venous insufficiency puts individuals at risk of serious complications.

Seeking Treatment for Vein Disease

Far more than just a cosmetic problem, varicose veins signal an underlying circulation disorder.

The New York Vein Treatment Center is announcing the publication of a new article on implications of untreated vein disease. According to the Manhattan based vein center, varicose veins are an indication of an underlying circulation disorder, and are far more than just a cosmetic problem.

Dr. Lev Khitin of the New York Vein Treatment Center explains, “Without appropriate medical attention disorders affecting veins of the lower extremities unavoidably progress to complications, including blood clots, such as thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis, trophic ulcers, infections, swelling, bleeding and many others. Furthermore, untreated ulcers lead to malignancies, while untreated deep vein thrombosis causes pulmonary embolism, which is life-threatening condition, involving blockage of the lung circulation by the blood clots, traveling from the leg veins. Even in absence of complications, people with vein disease suffer from heaviness, tiredness, weakness, aches, discomfort, pain, swelling, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, difficulties walking or standing for prolonged periods, as well as many others”, noticed Dr. Khitin, the leading NYC vein specialist.

Dr. Khitin and his team at New York Vein Treatment Center want the public to know that there are multiple effective, minimally invasive treatments options available for venous disease, all of which can be performed in a NYC vein specialist’s office effectively, quickly and safely. They hope that by providing this information, patients suffering from vein disease will be encouraged to seek prompt treatment to avoid possible complications.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent and, most importantly, permanent results with no side effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
