April 2013: New York City: New York Vein Treatment Center, a Manhattan based vein center, is advising the public to thoroughly investigate a vein specialist’s credentials before they seek care. Receiving treatment from an unqualified vein specialist can lead to greater problems.
Dr. Lev Khitlin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, recommends investigating a vein doctor’s certifications before treatment. “A specialist who is certified by the American Board of Surgery will have the necessary certifications to safely perform vein procedures,” he says. Personal compatibility should also not be overlooked as much time will be spent with the specialist before, during, and after treatment.
New York Vein Treatment Center hopes that education on what to look for in a vein specialist will help patients make the best decisions for their vein care. The center is providing additional information on investigating a vein specialist’s credentials through Facebook and Twitter.
A wrong diagnosis or/and inappropriate treatment will only make current problem worse. Anyone seeking vein treatment should thoroughly investigate a specialist’s credentials to ensure the best possible results.

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.
The New York Vein Treatment Center (NYVTC) was established in 2002 as a medical facility devoted exclusively to the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, and related venous disorders.
