Varicose veins and spider veins are treated by the vascular surgeons at Mount Sinai by using the most advanced technology, including laser procedures (EVLT), foam sclerotherapy, and microsurgical ambulatory phlebectomy. These methods can often be performed as an office procedure and avoid the need for traditional surgery. They also allow the patient to quickly return to normal their activities.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) results from a blot clot forming in the deep veins of the leg which can lead to severe swelling of the leg. Our physicians often treat this condition with medication called ‘blood thinners.’ Our specialists may also use blood clot dissolving medication to remove the blood clots and reduce the swelling in the leg.
Mount Sinai offers multiple non-surgical treatment options for venous disease. We work closely with our patients to find the best treatment options to relieve symptoms and reduce complications.
