The dreaded varicose veins have appeared on your legs. Perhaps you waited to see if they might go away on their own. Maybe your mother also had them, or your aunt, and now it’s your turn, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere. But if you talk to your mother or your aunt about their experience of varicose vein treatment, you may feel like running the other direction as fast as possible!
Traditionally vein diseas treatment involved surgical operations, performed under general anesthesia, required prolonged periods of recovery, left large scars and always were complicated by recurrence of the disease with its further development. No more. Today, any modalities of varicose vein treatment are minimally invasive, all are performed on an outpatient basis well within one hour, require no general anesthetics or lengthy recovery, minimally uncomfortable during their performance, provide permanent results (with no recurrence of the disease), safe and do not require restriction or limitation of typical life style during post-procedure period.
How Are Varicose Veins Treated in Manhattan, NY?
Among the widest variety of therapeutic modalities available for treatment of venous diseases, the most commonly used ones are the following. First, endovenous catheter-based obliteration, where endovenous LASER therapy and radiofrequency obliteration are currently being the most popular due to their excellent safety records and effectiveness. Second, sclerotherapy, during which closure of the veins is achieved by injections. Third, treatment techniques combining two of the above with the ClariVein® method being the most typical example. Finally, there is a group of semi-non-invasive techniques with phlebectomy and micro-phlebectomy being the most widespread ones. In majority of cases, more than one of the above modalities is required.
Choice of technique depends on several well-defined factors, derived from medical complaints and cosmetic considerations, results of physical examination and findings of diagnostic tests where indicated.
