NYC Surgical Associates surgeons understand that women have unique cardiac and vascular needs. We offers comprehensive treatment options for many women’s health issues including uterine fibroid embolization and treatment of pelvic congestion syndrome as well as treatment of varicose and spider veins.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths in the uterine wall which affect up to half of women over thirty-five years of age and can cause heavy menstrual bleeding and pain. Chronic pelvic pain may be caused by varicose veins in the pelvis and occurs in one in eight women from twenty to fifty years of age. Treatment of varicose and spider veins in the legs is not just a cosmetic issue; varicose veins can cause pain, swelling and blood clots.
The NYCSA team has established a women’s health treatment program to provide effective and less invasive techniques to treat these conditions in most patients providing excellent results with minimal recovery times. Our women’s health services are internationally recognized as a center of excellence. Our physicians participate in the advanced training of other physicians. Our fellowship program is one of the best in the country and positions in the program are highly sought after. Our active participation in research allows NYCSA physicians the opportunity to advance the scope and effectiveness of vascular procedures and offer the most effective treatments to our patients.
Our outcomes and patient satisfaction are superior due to our commitment to deliver the highest quality of individualized treatment and compassion. We make every effort to ensure comfort and to control pain. Our patients receive frequent follow up phone calls and email access to their physician after discharge to answer questions and provide guidance when needed.
