Treatment for Venous Insufficiency with Jennifer Svahn, MD FACS
Dr. Svahn consults with Elizabeth (Chicky) Longobardi about her condition of venous insufficiency, which is preventing her from having liposuction for lipedema. She discusses the various techniques she will use to treat Chicky, including laser ablation for venous reflux and sclerotherapy for smaller veins, and what Chicky can expect after the procedures in terms of swelling and pain relief. Dr. Svahn also speaks about what patients who have venous issues in addition to lipedema can generally expect from treatment. Dr. Jennifer Svahn works for the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center as a board-certified vascular surgeon with an emphasis on venous disease.
