Top Reasons to Get Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that affect an estimated 50% of the adult population, especially older adults. These veins often occur on the lower legs, creating pronounced, raised blue, purple or reddish veins that are aesthetically and physically undesirable. Varicose veins can cause a variety of symptoms and put you at risk of certain health problems. Here are some of the top reasons to seek treatment if you have varicose veins.

Leg Pain and Cramping

Varicose veins may start as smaller spider veins but as they get larger, they can become very uncomfortable. The legs tend to ache, especially when you are on your feet for extended periods of time, and many people experience cramping. Affected legs tend to feel heavy with throbbing aches throughout the day.

Swelling in the Lower Legs/DVT

Swelling of the legs, especially in the calf, can be a serious sign of complications with varicose veins. It can also make it uncomfortable to wear certain clothing or footwear. Swelling around varicose veins can be a sign of a blood clot (DVT), which requires immediate medical diagnosis and treatment to prevent pulmonary embolisms.

Skin Ulcers

Some varicose veins can cause ulcers in the skin surrounding the vein. Discoloration of the skin is the first sign of an ulcer caused by varicose veins, which often occurs near the ankles. These ulcers can be painful and increase the risk of infection.

Aesthetic Concerns

Varicose veins are pronounced, twisted veins that are unattractive. If the health risks and painful symptoms are not enough to induce seeking treatment, consider the benefits of removing these veins for cosmetic reasons.

Treatments for Varicose Veins

Dr. Benvenisty is a highly skilled and respected vascular surgeon who offers advanced options for varicose vein removal. In most cases, these veins can be removed with minimally-invasive treatments such as saline injections (sclerotherapy), ablation or laser therapy. This can remove these unsightly veins from your legs just in time for summer, as well as reduce the risk of pain, blood clots and other complications. Call the office of Dr. Benvenisty in NYC to schedule your varicose vein treatment consultation.

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.
