Despite common belief, it is impossible to develop gangrene due to venous insufficiency: it is a complication of peripheral arterial atherosclerosis. Another common misconception related to venous conditions of lower extremities is confusion between thrombophlebitis of superficial veins and deep vein thrombosis. The former one is a complication of superficial venous insufficiency and often unpleasant, but never a dangerous condition. The latter is an independent disease, not related to the prior one, with the potential to cause, so-called, pulmonary embolism”: throwing blood clots into the lung circulation.

Visiting Dr. Khitin was a refreshing experience. I've visited multiple physicians and it looks like most of them treated me like a number. Dr. Khitin has an amazing ability to patiently explain all of the intricacies of the disease. Treatment went smooth. I feel 15 years younger! Thanks doc! –Anastasia L., Manhattan NY
I usually don't write reviews, but I feel that Dr. Lev literally saved my leg. I am 35 and not the typical patient for this kind of stuff, but I had an open ulcer on my leg for 3 years!!! Compression, creams, special diet - nothing helped. After Dr. K's treatment, the ulcer slowly began disappearing and it was gone in 6 weeks. If you ever had an ulcer, you know exactly how I felt! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! – Mike B., Fair Lawn NJ
I was referred to Dr. Khitin by my primary after suffering for many years from restless leg syndrome and varicose veins. Dr. Khitin is the best!
