New York Vein Treatment Center Educates About the Causes of Varicose Veins


April 2013: New York City: This month, the New York Vein Treatment Center in New York City is launching a new campaign to help educate the public about the causes of varicose veins. The center hopes that by understanding the causes of varicose veins, members of the public can work to avoid them.

Healthy veins have elastic walls that help move blood from the extremities to the heart. Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor of New York City, explains multifactorial nature of venous disorders causing varicosities. While it takes several types of genetic predisposition to decrease elasticity of venous wall, there are numerous extrinsic factors affecting it development in negative or positive direction.
Dr. Khitin and the staff at the New York Vein Treatment Center specialize in treating varicose veins and venous disorders causing them. They share their expertise in vein diseases diagnosis and treatment through Facebook and Twitter.

Anyone who is concerned about their veins health and about their circulation is encouraged to learn more about origins and development of conditions affecting veins and the entire circulatory system to help keep problems from occurring.

Varicose Veins 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, 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.
