A Fresh Meadows Vascular Doctor Explains How Vein Doctors Can Help You Live a Better Life

When most people think of living a better life, they think of having more money, a better job, a new romance – but a good vein doctor? Not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. After all, vein disease is just an annoying and inevitable part of getting older, right?

In fact, vein disease does not have to be a part of everyone’s aging process. And, even if you do suffer from vein problems, you can do something about them. These days, the results you’ll get from working with a qualified Long Island vein specialist go far beyond the cosmetic: you’ll both look and feel better than ever.

What should New Hyde Park residents know about vein disease?

Vein disease is not just a cosmetic issue – it is a sign that a medical problem known as venous insufficiency is occurring in your body. Venous insufficiency is the result of a weakening in the vein walls and valves, which makes it more difficult for your veins to efficiently transport blood up the legs and back to the heart. This weakening can lead to blood pooling in the veins, swollen legs and ankles, and those familiar, twisting bulges known as varicose veins.

Venous insufficiency has many causes, ranging from genetics to aging to lifestyle factors. For example, if you have a family history of vein disease, you are more likely to suffer from it yourself. And, 50% of people over age 50 have some form of vein disease. However, lifestyle factors such as being overweight or obese, or living a sedentary lifestyle, also play important roles.

But how can a vein doctor really help me live a better life?

Regardless of the cause of your vein disease, vein doctors can help you live a better life by restoring both the health and beauty of your legs. If lifestyle factors are contributing to your vein problems, conservative strategies such as losing weight, starting to walk regularly and the use of compression stockings can prevent or slow the progression of vein disease. For patients who already have varicose veins or spider veins, minimally invasive treatments can eliminate them and restore good circulation in your lower extremities. This means better-looking legs, greater self-confidence, more fun on your feet, and overall better health – all part of a good life.

Left untreated, vein disease can have some pretty unpleasant consequences, including ulceration and even blood clots. However, today’s minimally invasive treatments such as sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy and endovenous laser treatment ensure those complications won’t happen. What’s more, these therapies can be performed right in your New Hyde Park vein disease treatment center, meaning there is no need to go to a hospital or have general anesthetics. In fact, you’ll be back on your feet and on your way in around an hour, with minimal side effects and little to no scarring.

Dr. Julius Garvey of Garvey Vascular Specialists would like to meet you personally and explain how he can help you live a better, healthier life without vein disease. Please give us a call at 516-336-8878 to set up an appointment.
