November 22nd, 2013. New York. The New York Vein Treatment Center is launching a new public health campaign focusing on the importance of seeking vein disease treatment. According to the New York based vein clinic, vein care in NYC is often overlooked or considered merely a cosmetic issue. The center hopes to correct this misunderstanding and encourage the public to seek out treatment in a timely manner.
Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading Manhattan vascular specialist at the New York Vein Treatment Center, encourages patients to understand the risks associated with vein disease. “The chronic form of vein disease known as venous insufficiency puts individuals at risk of serious complications, such as infection, bleeding, formation of trophic ulcers and even malignant lesions, thrombophlebitis and swelling. Prompt treatment helps patients to prevent these and other complications.”
The NYC vein specialists are providing information on the importance of seeking vein treatment throughout the month of November. Information will be distributed through the center’s social media outlets. Interested readers can learn more by visiting the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

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 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.
