Stockings For Your Varicose Veins

New York NY Vascular Surgeon Dr. Alan Benvenisty

“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.” – Twas The Night Before Christmas

If you suffer from varicose veins, you many want to consider asking Santa for a special kind of stocking that will reduce their appearance and painful symptoms. If you have varicose veins, they are due to the blood clotting behind the small valves in your veins instead of flowing back to your heart. Varicose veins are most common in your legs and feet because your blood returning to your heart has a longer distance to travel.

Why Compression Stockings?

Compression stockings are worn to improve circulation in your feet and legs. They provide your legs with consistent pressure that will aid your blood in flowing back toward your heart.

Do Compression Stockings Work?

Compression stockings have the potential to help your varicose veins to a certain extent. However, it is very unlikely that compression stockings will completely eliminate your varicose veins. Results vary greatly from person to person.

What Are Your Alternatives For Compression Socks?

While using and wearing compression socks are a good start to helping your varicose veins, most likely you will need to determine other courses of action as well. Dr. Alan I. Benvensity, MD is a highly respected vascular and endovascular surgeon in New York City. He will approach your varicose veins individually according to his philosophy of treating patients as individuals. Call his office today to see how he can help you with both your varicose and spider veins.

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.

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.
