A Long Island Vascular Doctor Explains What to Do about Painful Varicose Veins

Not only do you have varicose veins, but they hurt. It was one thing to cover them up and try to forget they were there, but now you can’t forget about them. What should you do? Read on as a Long Island vascular doctor explains the causes of painful varicose veins and the (surprisingly quick and effective) ways to get rid of them (and their pain) forever.

What do Long Island residents need to know about the causes of varicose veins?

Varicose veins are the result of problems with the tiny valves inside our veins. These little valves open and close to make sure that blood moves up the legs and back to the heart, to recirculate throughout the body. When the valves don’t work properly, which can be due to age, genetics, or certain lifestyle factors, the blood can move back down the legs and pool there. When this happens, you have a condition a Long Island vascular doctor calls “venous reflux”, but to you, the pooling blood simply means you are likely to develop varicose veins – and sometimes they hurt.

One of the biggest problems with venous reflux is that it is a progressive condition: it won’t go away on its own. At first you may be able to cover up your veins and pretend they don’t really exist, but left untreated, those varicose veins can lead to some unpleasant medical consequences such as pain, swelling, aching, and even deep vein thrombosis or blood clots – which can be deadly. That’s why it’s so important to get help for your varicose veins from a Long Island vascular doctor sooner rather than later.

How can a visit to one of the best Long Island vein treatment centers help me?

The good news is that even though venous reflux is progressive, there are now effective, minimally invasive treatments that get rid of varicose veins permanently, along with their accompanying symptoms such as pain. These treatments include sclerotherapy, ambulatory microphlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation (EVLT). Each of these procedures is minimally invasive, meaning it only requires a needle stick or tiny incisions that heal without scarring. There are no hospital visits and no lengthy recovery periods. Your Long Island vein treatment is performed in our comfortable clinic on an outpatient basis. You’ll be back at your usual activities the very same day.

To choose the best treatment modality for you, a Long Island vascular doctor will first provide you with a painless venous health evaluation. This evaluation will include a medical and family history, an examination of your varicose veins, and perhaps an ultrasound scan to “see” the veins deep beneath the skin’s surface. With this information and together with you, we’ll create the most effective treatment plan possible to eliminate varicose veins and any accompanying pain you might be experiencing. You’ll not only look better, you’ll feel better – it’s what we do best.

So don’t wait another day: call our office today at 516-821-0242 or go online to get started eliminating those varicose veins, their pain, and any other accompanying symptoms you may be experiencing. We look forward to meeting you.
