Our Services

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body. This is a serious condition that is associated with another name called thromboembolism.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are swollen, bulging veins that protrude from the surface of the skin, often with a blue or purplish color. They commonly have a rope-like or cord-like appearance on the skin.

Spider Veins

Spider veins are smaller, thread-like veins that occur near the surface of the skin and often appear on the legs or face.

Leg Swelling

Leg swelling, known as peripheral edema, is the swelling of the lower extremities. This issue can be an indication of a problem in the venous circulation system.

Discoloration

Hyperpigmentation or skin color changes in the skin as result from significant venous circulatory issues.

Venous Ulcers

Venous Ulcers, sometimes called varicose ulcers, are painful and raw ulcers that commonly develop near the ankle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a Fee for the Online Vein Screening?

No. We are happy to review your pictures and will have a doctor call you to discuss them at no cost to you.

How does it work to treat superficial venous reflux?

Since valves can’t be repaired, the only alternative is to re-route blood flow through healthy veins. Traditionally, this has been done by surgically removing (stripping) the troublesome vein from your leg. The Closure procedure provides a less invasive alternative to vein stripping by simply closing the problem vein instead. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over and empty blood from your legs.

Will the procedure require any anesthesia?

The Closure procedure is performed under local anesthesia.

How long does the Closure procedure take?

The Closure procedure typically takes about 15-20 minutes, though patients normally spend 45-60 minutes at the medical facility due to normal pre- and post-treatment procedures.

Is the Closure procedure painful?

Patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the Closure procedure. Dr. Markovitz will give you a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

Testimonials

I had a great experience. Everybody made sure that my time in the clinic was as pleasant as possible. All technicians, the office Manager and Dr. Markowitz were extremely helpful, listened to all my concerns and provided me with answers for every question. Nobody ever was in rush with me. If anything, they took extra time to look after me and my veins.”
