What is the Cause of my Varicose Veins?

Reviewing Medical Records

Varicose veins represent blood vessels that are stretched and damaged. These raised blood vessels are usually found in the legs and are often highly visible. If you see twisted red, blue or purple lines forming on your lower limbs, varicose veins are the likely culprits.

Contrary to popular belief, varicose veins are more than a cosmetic issue. You may begin to experience symptoms such as pain, burning, cramping, restlessness, tingling around the affected areas. In extreme instances, blood clots and the subsequent development of a condition known as thrombophlebitis can result from varicose veins.

Causes of Varicose Veins

Some people suffer from varicose veins as a heredity condition. The inherited type of varicose veins happens when valves develop in a defective way. A more common cause of varicose veins is found in people who stand or sit for long periods of time at work. Other possible causes include obesity, hormonal changes, a side effect of birth control medication, skin trauma, overexposure to UV light, and previous vein surgery.

It is essential to consult with a vascular specialist in New York to determine the most likely cause and establish whether there is any additional health risk. Blood clots can have life-threatening implications. If you are concerned about your overall wellbeing, Dr. Alan Benvenisty can provide excellence in care.

Renata B.

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.
