Minimally Invasive Vein Surgery
Do you experience discomfort, swelling and varicose veins? If so, you may be suffering from superficial venous reflux disease. Approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Traditionally, patients diagnosed with venous reflux would undergo vein stripping surgery. Now, patients can be treated with the endovenous ablation— a closure procedure for varicose veins that is minimally invasive and a more comfortable alternative to painful vein stripping surgery. Dr. Bakir M. Altai, M.D., F.R.C.S. is a specialist in general and vascular surgery who treats venous reflux disease in the superficial venous system, often the underlying cause of painful varicose veins. Dr. Altai can be reached at 646-455-2728 and his office is located at 32-72 Steinway St., Suite 502, in Astoria. For more information, visit www.veinandlasermedispa.com.
