What is Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a common form of treatment for spider veins of the legs, varicose veins and ugly veins of the hands. It is an in-office procedure that consists of injecting a small volume of a liquid (foamed Sotradecol or Polidocanol) into the diseased vein with a very small needle. The sclerosing agent acts upon the lining of the vein to cause it to seal shut, eliminating the vein completely.
The procedure typically improves not only the cosmetic appearance but associated symptoms as well. A few sessions may be required to obtain maximum benefit. The procedure is painless and normally takes 5 to 30 minutes, depending on how many veins are treated.
In the case of spider veins, the occluded vessel looks initially like a dark streak or spot. It may take between 3 to 6 months to achieve its optimum cosmetic resultingin the elimination of the ugly vessel.
One can expect about 70-80% improvement in the cosmetic appearance (complete disappearance all spiders is not possible and this expectation is unrealistic).
When varicosities are injected, the patient wears a compressive elastic bandage for one week. In the case of spiders, there is no need for compression.

What Are Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are a very common condition in the United States and affect approximately 15% of men and approximately 25% of women.
These are large, ugly-looking “rope-like” veins that are often 1/4” or larger in diameter. Often, patients’ main concern is the cosmetic appearance of the involved extremity.
Symptoms of varicose veins include pain, swelling and throbbing, cramps, itching and burning, superficial phlebitis, and bleeding. Typically prolonged sitting or standing tends to make the legs feel worse. The varicose veins are easy to spot because they are dark purple or blue in color and sometimes appear twisted and bulging. The most common spot they appear is on the inside of the leg or on the backs of calves.
If left untreated they can result in skin inflammation (dermatitis) and ulcerations in the affected extremity. With the advent of the most current state-of-the-art medical treatments, there is simply no reason to tolerate this disfiguring condition.

No Need to Suffer in Vein
(article from The Observer)

#nycveinspecialist #veindoctornyc #legveintreatment  

Dear Dr. Harry Schanzer,
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful results from my leg surgery. I wish I’d heard about you sooner. It would have spared me a year of discomfort. I’ll recommend to you to anyone that needs an excellent vascular doctor that also has time to talk to his patients.
I wish every office I had to visit, ran as smoothly as yours. It’s a pleasure to have an appointment, and actually to be seen at that time! Philip does an amazing job managing your office and appointments…he should give lessons! I’m so used to bringing a book along. I only needed it to read on the train.
Belkis was also helpful and kind. You and your staff were a pleasure to deal with.
Many thanks,
-Tom L., Brooklyn

Dear Dr. Harry Schanzer,
In my professional life I am required to research very thoroughly. I used this approach when deciding whether and with whom to have the endovenous laser treatment procedure. I chose Dr. Schanzer because of his experience with this procedure and his helpful (not condescending) explanations of why he recommended the procedure and how he would conduct it. His office staff is also quite helpful. Most importantly, I am very happy with the results and would recommend him to others.
