Issues in the veins and arteries can lead to a number of serious and potentially deadly complications
New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
The New York Vein Treatment Center is announcing the launch of a new campaign to help educate the public about vascular disease. Millions of Americans suffer from vein and artery issues, making vascular disease an important public health concern, the New York City vein center says "The center aims to help give patients the information they need to reduce their risk and achieve better health outcomes."
Vascular disease covers a variety of issues that affect a person’s circulatory system. Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, stresses the importance of vascular disease prevention. “Issues in the veins and arteries can lead to a number of serious and potentially deadly complications,” Dr. Khitin explains. "An increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and deep vein thrombosis are all associated with vascular disease."
The New York City based vein center is using social media to reach out to the public with information on vascular disease. Information on this topic can be found on the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the month of August. Everyone who is at risk of vascular disease is encouraged to take the issue seriously and to learn more about what they can do to lower their risk.

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, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
