According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
As surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates, Dr. David Greuner is tasked with staying on the cutting edge of minimally invasive procedures that require as little downtime as possible from his patients? fast-paced lives.

As a past contributor to The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and the news broadcasts of both ABC and CBS, Dr. Greuner often finds himself addressing a nationwide audience.
Of course, he earned his spot as one of his specialty's go-to experts through years of training and innovation. As a pioneer of No-Knife EVLT, Dr. Greuner took much of the pain out of spider- and varicose-vein treatments, creating a system that closes blood vessels with a laser instead of a switchblade. His efforts earned him a Top Surgeon designation from Consumers' Research Council of America three years in a row and professional leadership roles as a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the International College of Surgeons. They also translated into professional success; with six offices throughout the New York metro area, Dr. Greuner now oversees a team of practitioners that specializes in minimally invasive vascular and cosmetic procedures.
