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 973-540-9700, or request an appointment online, for your consultation.
