Vein Institute of Connecticut holds grand re-opening

Vein Institute of Connecticut located in downtown Fairfield at the Brickwalk, 1305 Post Road, suite 202 held a grand re-opening on July 27. First Selectman, Mike Tetreau, and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce executive director, Beverly Balaz attended the event. The renovations of the newest office helped bring about four procedure rooms and a luxurious reception area where patients can relax and be offered beverages during their brief waiting times.

Local leading vein expert Dr. Alex Afshar is trying to get the word out of how important venous insufficiency is. “In normal circulation, arteries carry blood from the heart to the body, and veins return the blood to the heart. Veins have one-way valves, and when the valve opens, blood flows against gravity toward the heart. When the valve closes, blood is prevented from flowing backward. The problems occur when the valves don’t close properly and the blood begins to flow back down the leg, towards gravity. This reverse blood flow causes pooling and vein-wall weakening, which can result in a variety of venous diseases.” Venous disease affects 20% of all adults. While many of these cases involve spider veins and varicose veins, they can lead to much more severe issues with leg ulcers and blood clots if left untreated. With a strong, experienced, medical team at his side they have already successfully treated thousands of these cases.

The growing practice also is proud to announce Dr. Daniel Machleder as the newest member of Vein Institute of CT, come September. He is coming from Staten Island where he serves as a board certified Vascular and Interventional Radiologist, who specializes in diagnosing and treating venous insufficiency and varicose veins. He is excited to join a more personable private practice where he can be a more active member of the community.

Next time you go outside for a walk or are at the beach, look around and you will notice how common vein disease is. Remember, while treatments are always available, the first step is an accurate diagnosis. Before making any treatment recommendations, it’s important to determine whether your vein problem is cosmetic or medical. While venous disease is not curable, proper treatment decreases the risk of more serious health issues such as ulcers. What surprises most people is that there is little to no downtime, and insurance covers most procedures. At Vein Institute of CT we give each patient the time and individual attention they deserve, so any and all questions are answered.
