What Sets Us Apart

Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when valves in the veins of the legs, which keep blood flowing toward the heart, stop working properly. It can cause aching, swelling, and cramping in the legs, as well as skin color changes and varicose veins. Left untreated, the condition can lead to disabling pain and open sores called skin ulcers. Some people may develop blood clots in the legs—a serious condition called deep vein thrombosis.

Vascular specialists at NYU Langone’s Vein Center provide minimally invasive treatments to eliminate damaged veins and improve blood flow in the legs. NYU Langone is at the forefront of new clinical trials for deep venous reconstruction and stenting, which help keep narrowed veins open.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment to improve blood flow in leg veins includes lifestyle changes, wearing compression stockings, minimally invasive procedures, or surgery.
