New NYU Vein Center

A new Vein Center opened up this month at NYU top treat vein problems of both a medical and cosmetic nature. The center is the first of its kind in Manhattan, giving New Yorkers a new place to go to get information about the health of their veins as well as treatment for unsightly vein problems. Using minimally invasive procedures and state-of-the-art technology, the NYU Vein Center treats everything from spider veins to venous ulcers. There are seven different surgeons on site who are not only trained in the art of vein surgery but who also train others around the world in the techniques and patient procedures that they have adopted at the new center.

The surgeons at the new Vein Center may be able to help you out with a number of different vein problems but they recommend preventative measures to avoid the problems altogether. Their recommendations for preventative care are based on the six E's: Exercise on a regular basis, Elevation of the legs when resting, Emollient skin care lotions, Electrolyte balance in the body, Elastic support hose and Evaluation by your doctor. Even if you aren't in Manhattan, you can follow the six E's to prevent vein problems.
