What is a Vein Clinic?

What is a vein clinic?

A vein clinic is a medical center specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of vein problems, such as spider veins, varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, and deep vein thrombosis. Vein clinics are led by vein doctors, officially called phlebologists, with specialized training in minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments. They examine your leg veins, discuss your symptoms, and curate the ideal vein treatment plans for you.

Our state-of-the-art vein clinics in New York are led by some of the country’s leading, board-certified and Harvard-trained vein doctors. Furthermore, we have undergone a voluntary IAC accreditation process to guarantee the highest standards of vein care and safety. Our vein doctors always diagnose and treat the root cause of your vein problems, rather than just the visible symptoms, to ensure long-lasting results.

What is a vein treatment?

Vein treatment is a procedure that addresses your vein problems and concerns, such as spider veins, varicose veins, and chronic venous insufficiency. Some vein treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation, are deemed medically necessary because they treat chronic venous insufficiency, the dangerous root cause of most vein problems. And other vein treatments, such as sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy, are considered to be cosmetic treatments because they improve the cosmetic appearance of your legs by removing spider veins and varicose veins.

To understand minimally invasive vein treatments, you must have a brief understanding of vein problems. Chronic venous insufficiency is the root cause of most vein problems. It’s a circulatory disorder wherein the collapse of vein valves eventually leads to the accumulation of blood in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in leg veins eventually leads to vascular dilation and the formation of spider veins and varicose veins. As such, venous insufficiency is the primary medical condition, and spider veins and varicose veins are the superficial symptoms.

The following are some of the best minimally invasive vein treatments:

  • Radiofrequency ablation involves channeling thermal energy into the diseased saphenous vein to make it collapse, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier leg veins. This procedure treats chronic venous insufficiency.
  • Endovenous laser ablation involves channeling laser energy into the problematic saphenous vein to make it collapse, restoring effective blood circulation to the heart. This procedure treats chronic venous insufficiency.
  • VenaSeal involves injecting a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to seal it shut, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier veins. This procedure treats chronic venous insufficiency.
  • Ambulatory phlebectomy involves the physical extraction of superficial varicose veins through small incisions on the skin’s surface. This is a cosmetic procedure that removes superficial varicose veins and improves cosmetic appearance.

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sclerosant medicine into spider veins to seal their walls shut, turning them into hardened tissues eventually absorbed by the body. This is a cosmetic procedure for spider veins.

How much does it cost to get your veins done?

The cost of vein treatment varies from one individual to the next because it depends on numerous factors. Your vein doctor will examine your leg veins, perform ultrasound diagnostic tests, and curate a personalized vein treatment plan just for you. Furthermore, your overall out-of-pocket cost will also depend on whether you’re eligible for insurance coverage and the terms and conditions of your specific insurance plan.

The following factors influence the cost of your spider vein and varicose vein treatments:

  • The location and size of your spider veins and varicose veins
  • Other symptoms of vein disease that may need to be addressed
  • Whether you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency
  • Your specific vein treatment plan
  • The terms and conditions of your insurance plan

Our state-of-the-art vein treatment clinics in New York follow a “no surprise billing” policy and provide free insurance verification. You can request free insurance verification before your appointment, so we can provide a complete overview of your vein treatment costs before your procedure. As such, you can proceed with your vein treatment knowing exactly what you’ll owe.

Is vein removal covered by insurance?

Minimally invasive vein treatments are usually covered by insurance if they’re deemed “medically necessary,” i.e. if you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency. Different vein treatments are eligible for different levels of coverage. As such, your insurance coverage will depend on your chosen treatment plan and the terms and conditions of your insurance providers. Our insurance concierge will gladly work out the details of your insurance plan on your behalf to help you maximize coverage.

What exercise is best for varicose veins?

The best exercises for varicose veins are those that work your calf muscles while increasing blood circulation, such as running, swimming, cycling, and yoga. These exercises improve blood circulation and strengthen your veins, thereby minimizing the risk of vein disease. And if you already have varicose veins, they push some of the accumulated blood towards your heart, thereby alleviating the discomfort. However, exercise can only provide temporary relief — you need minimally invasive varicose vein treatments for long-lasting relief.

Can varicose veins go away naturally?

No. Varicose veins can’t go away naturally — in fact, your varicose veins are likely to worsen with time. That’s because varicose veins are caused by chronic venous insufficiency, which, in turn, is caused by damaged vein valves. If left untreated, blood will continue accumulating in your leg vein, making your varicose veins expand even further, eventually leading to burst varicose veins and profuse bleeding. As such, you must seek varicose vein treatments as soon as possible.

When should you worry about varicose veins?

You should always worry about varicose veins because they’re indicative of advanced chronic venous insufficiency. If you have varicose veins, please schedule an appointment at our vein treatment clinics in New York to explore your treatment options.
