Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution into the vein, causing it to scar, and rerouting blood to healthier veins. The treated veins then collapse and are reabsorbed into nearby tissue and fade. Results can be seen within a few weeks, but multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results. LEARN MORE ›

Loved Schulman Vein Center - Manhasset, NY

I am astonished to read a negative review of Dr. Lee Schulman. I am a second generation patient; my mom was a patient of Dr. Martin Schulman for over 45 years.

I put this off for a long time thinking it would be too painful. Lauren, the assistant, did the procedure and it was not bad at all.
