Varicose veins present a number of symptoms that are easy to diagnosis visually, including distinctive coloring and a bulging appearance.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new health campaign focusing on varicose vein diagnosis and treatment. If left undiagnosed or untreated, varicose veins have the potential to cause bleeding, ulceration, and pain, says the New York City based vein center. The center hopes to encourage the public to pursue diagnosis and treatment of their vein problems, leading to a reduction of complications and an improvement in overall health.
A New York Cardiovascular Associates representative explains that in many cases varicose veins can be diagnosed through a visual examination. “Varicose veins present a number of symptoms that are easy to diagnosis visually, including distinctive coloring and a bulging appearance. In some cases an ultrasound test may be necessary to determine the root cause of the problem. Both forms of diagnosis are non-invasive, allowing patients to remain comfortable and requiring no recovery time.”
The center will be advising the public about what to expect from varicose vein diagnosis and treatment throughout the month of September. Interested individuals can learn more by visiting the center’s social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter.

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.
