Specializing in the management and treatment of venous disease
If you have varicose veins, you might view them primarily as a cosmetic issue, but the reality is that by the time you discover their unsightly appearance on your legs, you already have venous disease, also referred to as venous insufficiency.
Also, if you have varicose veins, you may already be experiencing symptoms in your legs associated with this problem, such as cramping at night, heaviness, swelling, throbbing, itching, pain, burning and muscle fatigue.
This is a progressive condition which, if left untreated, will worsen over time, ultimately leading to skin discoloration and ulcers.
At this stage these changes are irreversible.
According to Dr. Steven Allen, D.O., Director of The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy, the cost of caring for venous ulcers in the United States is almost $7 billion dollars annually, for something that is virtually preventable.
Therefore, the idea is to treat this disease as early as possible, which is precisely why Dr. Allen opened his state-of-the-art office, fully equipped with an on-site operating room and ultrasound suite.
This is one of the largest and most modern vein centers in the Delaware Valley.
The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy has recently received the coveted certification from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.
Dr. Allen applies his 41years of experience as an Interventional Radiologist and Endovascular Surgeon to his current practice.
In addition to treating leg veins, Dr. Allen also offers Hand Rejuvenation.
Hand aging is characterized by a loss of tissue volume and elasticity of the skin, which can increase the visibility of tendons, veins, and bones on the back of the hand.
Through the use of sclerotherapy and/or dermal fillers, a youthful look can be restored.
The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy is the only vein center in the area offering this cutting-edge treatment.
“The goal for my practice is to provide high quality care for all forms of venous disease,” explains Dr. Allen.
