Deep Vein Thrombosis

Man Holding Ankle in Pain New York NY

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a leg blood clot. It occurs when a blood clot is embedded in one of your major deep veins in your leg, and your blood is blocked. If you suffer from DVT, it can involve a sudden or acute pain and cause you to swell or experience warmth in the affected leg.

DVT Statistics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides us with important data on DVT.

  1. The precise number of people affected is unknown, however as many as 900,000 people could be affected.
  2. Estimates suggest that 60,000-100,000 Americans die of DVT.
  3. Among people who have had a DVT, one-half will have long-term complications.
  4. One-third of people with DVT will have a recurrence within ten years.
  5. Approximately 5 to 8% of the U.S. population has one of several genetic risk factors. You can read about common symptoms of DVT here, as stated by the Mayo Clinic.

You may be surprised to learn that many famous people have suffered from DVT. Athletes, politicians, and actors have suffered from the harmful condition. You can discover more detailed information about “Celebrities Who’ve Had Blood Clots”.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
