New York Doctor Says New Varicose Vein Treatment Leaves No Scars

Dr. David Greuner invents No-Knife Endovenous Laser™ a minimally invasive procedure for unsightly leg veins. Women with any skin type or color can benefit, he says.

Online PR News – 25-June-2013 – New York, NY – New York, NY - Dr. David Greuner, a board certified cardiovascular surgeon says many patients who seek treatment for varicose veins wish to avoid the small scars typically left by other leg vein treatments. “The No-Knife Endovenous Laser™ procedure is especially beneficial for women with darker skin tones who may be prone to hyperpigmentation, or dark discoloring at incision sites,” says Dr. Greuner, who is the surgical director at The Vein Centers of NYC Surgical Associates, with several offices in the tri-state area.

“Varicose veins can occur at any age,” says Dr. Greuner. “That’s why I have perfected a minimally invasive, completely knifeless laser variation of the endovenous laser procedure which can benefit anyone who wishes to avoid scars. ‘Knifeless’ means scarless, especially for darker-skinned individuals such as myself,” he says.

“Rather than using a scalpel, I use a small needle to enter the vein using ultrasound guidance,” says Dr. Greuner. “Usually a surgeon will make a small incision and a sheath is used to introduce a laser, radio frequency or laser catheter into the blood vessel. This method leaves a 2 to 5mm scar at the entry point, depending on the procedure. These small scars aren’t significant in people with fairer skin tones, but for anyone with olive and darker skin complexions a small scar can be a significant issue, especially in younger women, who are our major clientele.”

“Now our surgeons can avoid leaving a scar by utilizing a special very thin laser fiber and the most modern laser technology available. This laser fiber is specially engineered to be able to fit directly through a needle no larger than a needle typically used to draw blood,” says Dr. Greuner. “By using my new method, the surgeons at NYC Surgical Associates are able to successfully treat varicose veins without any long-term evidence of a procedure being done in the vast majority of cases."
