Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and quitting smoking can all lead to better vascular health and a lower chance of DVT
New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 24, 2013
The New York Vein Treatment Center is launching a new public health campaign on Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) prevention. According to the New York City based vein center, DVT is a serious type of blood clot that can lead to a dangerous pulmonary embolism. The center hopes that through education on this condition the public can pursue treatment and avoid dangerous complications.
Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, recommends maintaining healthy veins to lower the risk of DVT. “Promoting efficient blood flow will help reduce the chances of a blood clot occurring,” he explains. “Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and quitting smoking can all lead to better vascular health and a lower chance of DVT.”
The potential for deep vein thrombosis to become a pulmonary embolism makes it a serious health concern for many Americans. The New York Vein Treatment Center hopes the information it provides in its newest campaign will help the public make healthy decisions to lessen their risk. Information on this topic will be available through the center’s social media outlets throughout the month of August.

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 effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy and other forms of injections, different forms of endovenous ablation, phlebectomy, phlebotomy and many others.
