April 2013: New York City: The New York Vein Treatment Center in New York City is urging the public to undergo screening for vein diseases. Potentially fatal conditions can be identified and treated through early detection, potentially saving lives.
“Development and presence of blood clots in the vein is called deep vein thrombosis or DVT. The most common site of their formation includes lower extremities, since the blood flow in our legs is the most stagnant one”, says Dr. Lev Khitin, the leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center.
DVT is a serious condition. Sometimes these clots can break away and travel through the bloodstream to the lungs and can cause severe injury or even death. A blood clot traveling through vessels is called “thromboembolus”.
The New York Vein Treatment Center is well experienced and equipped to screen and treat patients for vein diseases. The center is providing more information on vein disease screening through Facebook and Twitter.
Just as with many other health issues, early detection of vein disease can lead to potentially life-saving treatment. Everyone should take the time to get screened for Deep Vein Thrombosis and other types of vein diseases.

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.
