Am I too old for vein treatment?

Like most conditions, vein problems typically get worse over time.  As a result, elderly people often have the most advanced vein problems.

While it is good medical practice usually to be more conservative when treating elderly patients, it doesn’t mean that older patients with serious vein problem can’t be treated.

The good news is that most vein treatments are actually very easy to tolerate for older patients and don’t result in any prolonged recovery or immobility.  Furthermore, most vein treatments are not prevented by most other medical conditions which are common in older patients.  Generally, there is no need for fasting or interrupting medications for our vein treatments.

So, long story short, we have provided vein treatments to many patients well into their 90’s (even a few >100!) with excellent results.  Naturally, we tailor the treatment plan according to the patient’s age and underlying medical conditions.

If you would like to discuss your vein problem with us, give us a call at 201-265-5300 for your consultation.

He diagnosed a blood clot, got me started on a blood thinner and I feel better than I have in months. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

  • "Dr.Lee is thee BEST Vascular Surgeon I EVER had in 42yrs! He is kind, compassionate, funny, and super honest! I really need the super honest part as his patient because I have been on dialysis for almost 20yrs time around and then dealing with end-stage renal failure since I was 13 and I was born with circle kidney so I need someone who is going to be upfront and honest with me and compassion at the same time and he is the ONLY surgeon to get three fistulas working on me! No one in 42 years has ever done that! He is the best surgeon I have ever had! Omg... and his staff is phenomenal !"

  • "A note of thanks to you! I must say I have never been more pleased with the care and treatment rendered by you and your staff, as compared to countless other physicians and their somewhat lacking care and consideration for their patients’ time and well-being. I am doing fine and had very little discomfort!"
