NYC Vascular Doctor Warns About the Dangers of Vein Disease


January 30th, 2013. Manhattan. New York Vein Treatment Center (NYVTC) is publishing a new article about how ignoring the early signs of vein disease could later send patients running to specialists for help. According to the Manhattan-based vein center, varicose veins and other symptoms should be taken seriously, because the symptoms could become much worse.

Dr. Lev Khitin, director of New York Vein Treatment Center says, “Most people don\’t take vein disease seriously. They don\’t consider treatment for their enlarged veins, and in many cases don\’t even go for a venous evaluation to find out whether the varicose veins might be a sign of a serious underlying condition.” Dr. Khitin wants patients to understand that varicose veins and other vein diseases don\’t just go away on their own: they get worse. Neglecting or avoiding treatment can leave patients running to specialists later in a panic, and can even become life threatening.

New York Vein Treatment Center feels that if the public knows more about vein disease and the need for prompt evaluation and treatment, if needed, they will become more willing to seek vein disease 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.
