What treatments does a team of leading vein doctors in NYC provide?

Conservative Treatments

The use of long-term compression stockings provides an adequate relief of symptoms such as leg heaviness, itching, cramps, mild tenderness using, and through leg elevation and oral pain medications. Stockings work very well when worn daily and are the ideal treatment for patients who do not want surgery.

Surgical Treatments

Traditional surgical treatment consisted of vein ligation and stripping removal procedures. Vein stripping is a surgical procedure done under general or local anaesthetic to treat varicose veins and other symptoms of chronic venous disease.

Endovascular Treatments

So called catheter-based endovenous thermal ablation (EVTL). EVTL is performed under ultrasound guidance and with a local anesthetic, and is done with either laser or radiofrequency. RFA – Radiofrequency ablation is an approved technique from 1999 by the FDA. Based on many published studies both vein removal procedures are equally successful but there are fewer side effects with RFA.

Supplemental Procedures

Many patients also have visible superficial veins so called spider veins (1 mm to 3 mm diameter). Spider veins can be painful to local pressure. To remove them Dr. Bard is using liquid sclerotherapy that involves the injection of a dilute medication (sclerosant) into the superficial or reticular veins. Phlebectomy involves the removal of larger superficial varicose veins through small 2 mm to 3 mm incisions. Note: laser therapy for veins is only used to treat the spider veins and is not useful for varicose veins.

Compression Therapy

Compression stockings offer symptomatic relief of symptoms of venous reflux disease. After most treatments for venous reflux, compression stockings are recommended. Dr. Bard recommends to have a compression therapy from several days to 2 weeks, depending on the severity of symptoms and the type of treatment. Some patients with more severe swelling should have a compression therapy for a longer period.

Post-Procedure Follow Up

Dr. Bard recommends an ultrasound examination of the treated leg within the first week to evaluate for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Based on multiple studies likelihood of forming DVT is under 1%.
