Non-Surgical Wound Care Treatments
NYC's Wound Care Treatment Center
For the past 10 years, Sinai Laser Vein Center has served the population of Brooklyn and Manhattan, diagnosing and treating vascular conditions and providing wound care treatments. Our highly trained vascular team specializes in vascular surgery, interventional radiology, and diagnostic radiology. We are willing to take calls from new and existing patients over the phone and offer our expert consultation. It’s important to us to lead you in the right direction when it comes to diagnosis and treatment.
In addition to wound care services, we are proud to offer a full range of radiology services for both adults and children in order to accurately diagnose all forms of vein disease. Our radiologists are nationally renowned in their ability to perform MRI, CT, and intravascular ultrasound for vein diseases. Such diagnostics are not often readily available at vein treatment centers, but we want to ensure that our patients receive the most precise diagnosis possible.
Compassionate, Patient-Focused Treatments
People with diabetes are at a greater risk for developing a number of complications, including foot ulcers and infections. Our expertly-trained vascular team understands how quickly these conditions can become severe. Left untreated, diabetic foot ulcers can lead to amputation. Our continuing mission is to avoid this scenario whenever possible, which is why we offer prompt diagnosis and customized treatments for all of our patients.
When you are a patient at our practice, we will not simply treat you and send you on your way. At Sinai Laser Vein Center, we make it a point to find the root cause of vascular problems and injuries, and find long-term solutions. Patient education is important to us, which is why we strive to inform all of our patients on ways they can effectively minimize their risk of incurring vascular-related wounds.
