Vein Institute of Westchester goes International

At the April 2018 International Vein Symposium, Dr. Michael Gioscia joined French colleagues Dr. Paul Pittaluga and Sylvian Chastnet of The Riviera Vein Institute to discuss the latest trends of the vein treatment industry. Particularly, they discussed a new “fad” of vein institutes that are drawing in patients with massive marketing tactics, but in reality lack the proper experience and trained personnel to treat venous conditions.

The doctors, who have a combined experience of 75 years and a multitude of resources to draw from in their careers, will soon start working with other physicians by putting them through a training program to set the standard for excellent in their vein treatment plans. Dr. Gioscia, Pittaluga and Chastnet all agree that the main focus should be on individualized care tailored to each patients unique needs, rather than a standard, bundled regimen.

Additionally, the AMA CPT Review Panel has also just approved Dr. Gioscia to begin a new procedure to treat varicose veins. Dr. Gioscia worked directly with a company in Belgium to modify the device and perfect the procedure. He successfully treated multiple patients with a new, minimally invasive and regulatory improved technique that he brought back to the states and will begin training other professionals on. With the new procedure, Dr. Gioscia has also developed a database that compiles training and outcome information, geared to establish the short and long term outcomes of this new procedure. Once the safety, efficiency and outcome is established, this new device will become part of standard patient care plans.

What Makes an “Expert” an Expert?

In an upcoming article, in a major Westchester magazine interview, Dr. Michael Gioscia was asked what is unique to his approach to treating veins. Distinguishing himself from virtually every other vein treatment center in the area as an individual physician with Vascular Fellowship training and Board Certification in Surgery coupled with 25 years experience in treating all venous disorders, the answer was quite obvious.

Simply put, Dr. Gioscia has the expertise and training as well as over two decades presence in the Westchester area because he has personally treated thousands of satisfied patients, performing all diagnostic tests and procedures himself. This level of individualized care by a physician is unparalleled in this field.

Recently, it has become more and more common for “Vein Treatment Centers” to spring up in multiple locations due to the the assistance of significant financial backing, marketing strategies, and the claim of expertise in this rapidly growing specialty.

Unfortunately, the majority of these facilities take physicians from other medical fields, put them through brief training periods and acquaintances with the complexities of venous conditions, both medical and cosmetic, and declare them “experts”. Many such institutions also utilize non-physician practitioners to perform treatments that require years of experience to perfect. The treatment of venous conditions requires both a science and an artistic approach, because the final outcome is not just to relieve symptoms, but to create an aesthetically pleasing result.

Dr Gioscia’s referral pattern through friends, family members, coworkers, etc, all of whom have been prior patients, is an attestation to his talent.

Are Your Legs Ready for Spring and Summer?

Winter and early Spring are the best times to treat varicose veins and spider veins since some treatments require wearing compression stockings or needing to stay out of the sun. Also, since you’ll soon be wearing clothing that exposes the legs, now is the perfect time for Dr Gioscia to make your legs look and feel better!

Many patients fear having their vein conditions (varicose veins, spider veins, etc.) treated because they have been told or have heard that they will have to wear compression stockings and stay out of the sunlight for extended periods of time. As the Spring and Summer months approach, this concern becomes more real, but let’s look at the facts.

It is true that compression stockings are used in conjunction with most vein treatments, but in the majority of cases, they are only necessary for a matter of days. This minor inconvenience is far less than that of not having the confidence you deserve to enjoy your leisure time, whether it be in the sun or wearing shorts, capris, dresses or other clothing that exposes the legs.

Here at the Vein Institute of Westchester, Dr. Gioscia has performed all of these procedures thousands of times and successfully prepared people for the warm weather. The Winter and early Spring are excellent times to begin, and in most instances complete, vein treatments, regardless of the nature of the condition, whether it be cosmetic spider veins or more unsightly conditions such as varicose veins. This is the perfect time to begin to make your legs look and feel better!

Dr. Gioscia possesses the highest level of training and expertise, coupled with nearly 30 years of experience in order to provide an unparalleled and consistent service. Visit his website,, to learn more about the doctor and all your options.

What Is “Excellence” in Vein Treatment?

For over two decades, we have taken pride in personalized and physician-delivered care from true, board-certified experts in vein treatment. Unfortunately, in recent years, the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein conditions has evolved into a corporate business model.

Today, there are many large “Vein Centers”, Medi-spas, and other “Centers of Excellence” that are using vast budgets for deceptive marketing. Using paid ads, SEO, etc., these groups are claiming to provide the highest level of care. Although many of these facilities have been developed by well-qualified and trained vascular physicians, the doctors actually performing the treatments receive only cursory training, frequently for periods of weeks to months rather than a formal residency or fellowship that takes years.

Other institutions such as hospitals start vein treatment centers, frequently utilizing non-vascular physicians, often with no experience in patient interaction and limited clinical experience. These practices are sloppy at best, and dangerous at worst. This is why our qualifications and expertise are without equal.

Vein treatment combines both art and science, and requires extensive experience in order to affect the best results aesthetically and medically. It is only after decades of experience combined with such expertise to determine the best application of the numerous available technologies that one can expect consistent outcomes.

Dr Gioscia has that level of training, experience, expertise, and outcomes, providing an unparalleled and consistent service in the White Plains, NY area for over 25 years. Visit his website ( to learn more about the doctor and all your options.
