Skin Center Physician’s Spotlight: Dr. Gary Tannenbaum, Vein Specialist

“When someone has spider veins or varicose veins, they generally have two questions for me. The first is, “Is this a serious threat to my health and well-being?” and the second is “What caused these veins to appear?”

Dr. Gary Tannenbaum is a vascular surgeon who specializes in the treatment of spider veins and varicose veins. Dr. Tannenbaum trained at Columbia and Harvard, a testament to his excellence in his field. In addition to his work with the Skin Center, he is the Director of Surgery at St. John’s Riverside Hospital, and he also oversees a brand new, fully equipped, accredited vascular lab. His individualized approach to treatment is perfectly in alignment with the philosophy at our Westchester Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Center.

Spider Vein Removal: Show Your Legs with Confidence

Spider veins form when the capillaries, tiny blood vessels just beneath the surface of your skin, become dilated. Spider veins are most common on your legs, but they can form anywhere. They generally appear after weight gain or loss, as well as pregnancy.

While spider veins are generally not a health problem, they’re also not attractive. If you have spider veins and you’d like to see them disappear, Dr. Tannenbaum will meet with you and discuss your treatment options. There are a number of routes to smooth, sexy legs: he’ll help you pick the one that’s best for your individual situation.

Varicose Veins: Your Westchester County Treatment Options

While varicose veins may not present a serious threat to one’s health and well-being, they can be the cause of symptoms including pain, itching and fatigue. In some instances they can be a sign that there’s something going on with your overall health, and it’s essential to have them looked at by a highly qualified physician like Dr. Tannenbaum. If they are symptomatic of a larger health concern, he will advise you of the next steps you need to take. He is attentive and very focused on helping everyone realize their best health: the first step to looking good is feeling great!

There are several common causes for varicose veins, including weight gain and loss, pregnancy, venous insufficiency, and deep vein thrombosis. As a vascular surgeon, Dr. Tannenbaum has a unique perspective that allows him to understand the manifestation of varicose veins in a larger context of your overall vascular health.

Skin Center: Experienced Physicians You Can Trust

With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Tannenbaum’s consultations go far beyond the cookie-cutter questionnaire you may encounter at other Westchester cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatment facilities. His comprehensive evaluations focus on determining the cause of your varicose veins. It’s only at that point that he’ll begin discussing treatment options with you.

“I do not ‘fit’ the patient to the treatment,” Dr. Tannenbaum said. “I take the time to understand who the patient is and what their individual health and beauty concerns are. With this understanding, I can offer a complete solution which may include laser ablation, sclerotherapy and surgery when appropriate.”

An Individualized Approach Delivers Superior Results

When choosing a Westchester cosmetic surgery and skin center, you want to be sure that the team of physicians and clinicians are continually investigating and assessing new treatment modalities to ensure that you have access to the very best treatment for varicose veins and other beauty concerns.

“I utilize the latest available treatment options for spider veins and varicose veins,” Dr. Tannenbaum explained. “This includes endovascular laser vein ablation as well as radiofrequency ablation – also known as Venacure – for saphenous vein insufficiency. Small varicosities and reticular veins are treated with Foam Sclerotherapy. Small spiders are treated with standard sclerotherapy with Sotradecol, a newer agent which is less painful than standard saline injections.”

Patient safety should always the top priority at your chosen Westchester cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatment center. The above suite of varicose vein treatment options are safe, effective, and designed to minimize discomfort and disruption to your busy schedule.
