Services Provided

At the NYU VEIN CENTER, we take a comprehensive approach to treating your vein problems. We obtain a history and perform a physical exam in a comfortable, patient-friendly environment. We perform a noninvasive ultrasound exam at our in-office vascular lab to determine the areas of your venous problems (dilated veins, faulty valves, and areas of clot). Based on the information collected, a custom, individualized treatment plan is formulated by your doctor and discussed with you in detail. Veins that are cosmetically unappealing, or cause pain or other symptoms are prime candidates for treatment. Our faculty of surgeons has developed many procedures that will make your vein care simple and convenient. Endovenous Laser - VenaCure™ — VenaCure™ is a minimally invasive office based treatment alternative for Closure™ and surgical stripping of the great saphenous vein.

RF (radiofrequency) Closure™ and Laser Ablation — tthese minimally invasive procedures use either radiofrequency or laser energy to cause the diseased vein wall to collapse and seal shut.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy —surgical removal of surface varicose veins performed under local anesthesia with minimal to no scarring.

Sclerotherapy —a relatively painless procedure in which the doctor injects a small amount of fluid into the affected area, causing the vein to collapse and disappear.

Laser —we use this practically painless treatment on the smallest spider veins and broken capillaries on the legs and face.

Armed with a talented physician, the NYU Vein Center offers a variety of vein treatments to help patients look and feel their best. If you are in need of a boost, book an appointment today!
