Working with Your NYC Vein Treatment Specialists Can Help You Decide Which Vein Treatment Is Right For You


The most important “decision point” in the process of eliminating your varicose veins, spider veins, or other venous disorders is that moment when you say (like the character in the film Network), “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this any more!” That’s the point at which people who have been trying to “live with” their vein disease for months or even years decide to actually DO SOMETHING to get rid of it. As experienced NYC varicose vein treatment specialists, we congratulate anyone who has reached that point and is ready to seek treatment.

But now you face another decision point – WHICH treatment should you seek? You’ve probably heard about many of them from your friends or on the Internet – radiofrequency ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, sclerotherapy – but do you know what these terms mean, and which treatment you should choose? In this article, we explain that one of the most important roles of a vein doctor is to help patients to choose the right treatment option – for you.

The “right” NYC vein treatment option depends on many factors

All treatment starts with a thorough venous health screening and physical examination, to determine the seriousness and cause of your vein disease. The treatment options appropriate for a patient who has minor examples of spider veins on his neck or legs are not the same as the treatment options appropriate for a patient whose varicose veins are so large and infected that their legs are covered with open, bleeding sores, or so painful that they can barely walk.

But there are other factors that are almost as important when deciding on a treatment regimen, and one of them is what your personal goals are in seeking treatment. For example, if you have varicose veins, are you more interested in overcoming the chronic feelings of tiredness and weakness in your legs, or are you more interested in eliminating the unattractiveness of the varicose veins, and regaining the original beauty of your legs?

Working with a vein doctor is really working WITH a vein doctor

Your Manhattan vein specialist’s job is not to “sell you” on a particular treatment regimen, but to listen carefully to what your personal goals are, and then to help you choose the treatments that enable you to meet them. So don’t delay any further – pick up your phone and call us at 646-233-1838. We’ll schedule a venous health screening and start helping you as soon as you call.
