You’ve suffered long enough. Those varicose veins or spider veins on your legs are making you uncomfortable because of their appearance. Perhaps you are experiencing some common symptoms of vein disease, such as achiness and a heavy feeling in the legs particularly after prolonged standing or even sitting down. Maybe you also suffer from muscle cramps or restless leg syndrome or noticed swelling, or numbness in your legs and feet… It is time for treatment!
What should New York City patients look for in a vein treatment center?
There are two main areas you’ll want to consider when it comes to choosing a varicose vein center or spider vein center. The first is the staff and their qualifications, and the second is the facility itself. Let’s start with the staff.
A reputable vein treatment center will be staffed by a licensed physician, board-certified in vascular or cardio-vascular surgery and specializing exclusively in field of vein disorders. Qualified varicose vein doctors and spider vein doctors are always members of several professional societies and well-published and known in the field of phlebology.
Dr. Lev Khitin, president, founder and the leading vascular surgeon of the New York Vein Treatment Center in Manhattan, is board-certified in general, vascular, thoracic and cardiac surgery. Dr. Khitin is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and American College of Phlebology, a member of the American Society of Thoracic Surgeons, American College of Cardiology and the American Medical Association among many other professional societies and organization. He is more than qualified to provide his patients with the latest, safest and the most effective vein disease treatment currently available.
In addition to asking questions about the physician’s qualifications, you’ll want to meet him or her in person to see if you feel comfortable with the style and treatment approach offered. Does the physician take time to get to know you and your individual concerns? Do you feel comfortable that this physician and the staff have your best interests in mind and will take the best possible care of both your health and aesthetic concerns?

However, being comfortable with the physician and the staff are only part of the picture. You will want to be sure that the facility where your treatment will be provided is equipped with the latest technology and that the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are offered.
