New York Vein Treatment Center Releases a New Article Explaining Why Vein Disease Is Not Just a Cosmetic Problem


January 23rd , 2013. Manhattan. New York Vein Treatment Center (NYVTC) is publishing a new article on the dangers of believing that treatment for varicose veins is \”just cosmetic.\” According to the Manhattan based center, varicose veins are a form of vein disease that needs to be taken seriously, because the failure to do so will lead to negative consequences, affecting not only the veins of the lower extremities or venous circulation, but overall health and well-being.

NYC vein specialist dr. Lev Khitin, a founder and a president of New York Vein Treatment Center says, “Many patients with varicose veins are reluctant to seek medical attention. They perceive mistakenly that a single purpose of the treatment is the elimination of unsightly varicose and spider veins.” Dr. Khitin wants patients to know that the underlying cause can often be much more serious, and an indication of circulatory problems that can impair overall health. Varicose veins are often linked to far more dangerous conditions. Neglecting the disease or avoiding its treatment can be life-threatening.

New York Vein Treatment Center feels that if the public becomes better educated about the nature of vein disease and the need for prompt treatment, they will become less likely to just \”live with\” the unsightliness of varicose veins, the swollen legs and other symptoms they experience, and will become more willing to seek vein treatment in Manhattan.

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 and, 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.
