Dr. John Chuback Recognized by Vein Global for his Unique Contributions

Dr. John Chuback , Medial Director of the Chuback Medical Group, has been formally recognized by Vein Global (www.veinglobal.com) for their contribution to the new and innovative initiative in venous health.

Vein Global (www.veinglobal.com) is an innovative educational resource hub for physicians, clinicians, researchers, educators and other professionals involved in vein health. Vein Global, established with support from industry experts Cini-Med and Paramount/MD, is organized as an offshoot of the International Vein Congress (IVC) – a leader in the continuing medical education of venous disease. The IVC conference has been held annually in Miami for over a decade.

The reason I personally got involved with Vein Global is because there was a dire need for such a platform and that the individuals behind this initiative are the best in the world at what they do. There is no other online resource that brings this kind of fresh approach to venous disease while at the same time acting as the definitive educational source on cutting edge vein treatment.
As a premium healthcare media brand with a mission to cover all affairs, business, culture and the latest scientific findings as they pertain to vein disease around the globe, Vein Global will deliver information year-round, via web broadcast and educational divisions. The Vein Global audience includes all participants of the venous space: physicians and other health care providers, the medical device industry, those who finance innovation, policy makers, and third party payers.

IVC President Jose I. Almeida, M.D., Paramount/MD President Victor A. Sirgado, and Cini-Med President Kevin McGovern will manage and direct Vein Global’s initiatives. “The Vein Global website’s Education, Venous Practice, and Research sections will become a trigger for global debate on improving the way physicians approach patient care,” said Managing Partner Dr. Almeida.

I am totally jazzed about being a part of the Vein Global movement going forward. I feel VG will continue to set itself apart as the “go to” online destination for the definitive word on what’s happening now and what’s coming down the road in the ever expanding and improving field of vein care. Despite the significant strides we’ve made in the past decade in venous disease therapy, I truly believe that this field remains in its infancy. The future is really exciting. Vein Global will be at the forefront of disseminating knowledge to experts world-wide. This is, without question, the most exciting time ever to be involved in the management of venous pathology. VG is the vehicle we will ride into the future of our discipline.

Chuback Medical Group Launches Social Media Campaign on Little Known Spider Vein Facts

November 22nd 2013. Bergen County, NJ. The Chuback Medical Group is launching a social media campaign to inform the public about little known spider vein facts. The Bergen County, NJ based vein center cautions the public to consider spider veins as more than a cosmetic issue. The center hopes to encourage patients to seek out a spider and varicose vein doctor in NJ to help treat this problem if it arises.

Dr. John Chuback, a spider and varicose vein doctor in NJ, stresses that spider veins are often a symptom of a bigger issue. “They may be a sign of venous insufficiency, a vascular condition that may cause varicose veins, blood clots, and other issues. Treatment with a spider and varicose vein doctor in NJ can help treat the problem at its root, reducing the risk of further veins from forming.”

A qualified spider and varicose vein doctor in NJ can eliminate spider veins through sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive form of treatment. More information on sclerotherapy and spider veins in general will be made available through the Chuback Medical Group’s social media outlets throughout the month of November.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Abnormal veins, such as varicose and spider veins, affect nearly half of the adult population in the United States. Spider veins are little veins near the skin’s surface that resemble reddish tree branches or spider’s legs. Larger, bulging veins that are more bluish in color are called varicose veins. Varicose veins affect both men and women, but they occur more frequently in women.
There are many choices today for effectively treating varicose veins. Advances in medical technology have led to alternative treatments to surgery that are fast, virtually pain-free, and require little to no recovery time. Endovenous laser treatment, sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomies are all options for current treatment.

A Paramus, NJ Vein Doctor Explains Why Sclerotherapy is an Effective Way to Treat Spider Veins

Spider Veins
Spider Veins
Spider veins may seem like an insignificant problem at first, but when your legs are covered with these unsightly veins it can have a major impact on your self-image. Instead of wearing the clothes you love and engaging in activities you enjoy, you’re stuck in long pants no matter how hot the weather. Fortunately, spider vein specialists such as Dr. John Chuback have a solution – sclerotherapy. This minimally invasive procedure reduces the appearance of spider veins, allowing you to show off your legs again without embarrassment.

Why do Paramus, NJ patients experience spider veins?

When a person experiences visible spider veins, it can be a sign of a bigger problem. Instead of carrying blood back to the heart efficiently, the veins have faulty valves. This allows blood to reflux in the leg, causing visible veins.

The type of vein damaged affects the symptoms you will experience. When damage affects a vein deep in the leg, the pressure can lead to bulging vein problems, or varicose veins. However, if the damaged vein lies close to the surface of the skin a smaller, finer spider vein will form.

What is sclerotherapy and how can it help?

Sclerotherapy is a type of vein treatment used on spider and small varicose veins. A very small, fine needle is inserted into the diseased vein and a chemical agent is injected. This agent irritates the vein walls, causing them to swell. This swelling closes off the vein, eliminating blood flow and reducing the appearance of the veins.

One session of sclerotherapy may not be enough to completely eliminate the problematic vein. However, after a few appointments you will notice a huge improvement in the vein’s appearance. Because sclerotherapy is minimally invasive there is no need for a lengthy recovery or general anesthesia, allowing you to undergo treatment in as little as an hour.

Sclerotherapy and conservative treatment

Sclerotherapy is often used in conjunction with other forms of vein treatment. Its most common companion is conservative treatment. This form of treatment focuses on improving vein function without any surgical intervention. Instead, it focuses on simple lifestyle changes you can make to improve your vascular health and reduce your risk of more spider veins appearing in the future.

Compression stockings are a common type of conservative treatment used with sclerotherapy. These stockings provide your legs with helpful graduated pressure. They provide the most pressure around the ankles and then gradually lessen as you move up the leg. This encourages blood to move upwards instead of pooling back, reducing your risk of vein problems.

Exercise and weight management are two other common components of conservative treatment. Being overweight or obese puts unnecessary strain on your blood vessels, increasing your risk of damage. Regular exercise helps burn off extra calories and encourages proper blood movement, making it an important part of any conservative method of vein treatment.

If you have had enough of embarrassing spider veins, there are treatment options for you. Here at the Chuback Medical Group we have the experience and expertise needed to effectively get rid of varicose veins and spider veins. If you’d like to learn more about what we can do to help you eliminate your vein problems, give our Paramus, NJ spider vein center a call. We look forward to working with you!

What Bergen County, New Jersey Residents Should Know About Leg Numbness

imagesHealthy legs are responsive and pain-free. In some circumstances, though, you may experience numbness in this part of your body. Numbness in the legs is not necessarily a life-threatening condition. There are many causes of leg numbness, many of which can be addressed simply and easily.

What should Bergen County, New Jersey readers know about leg numbness?

In general, numbness tends to be caused by the irritation, compression, or damage of nerves in the periphery of your body. It is rare that numbness is associated with a life threatening disorder, but it is not a symptom that should be ignored. If you experience leg numbness, keep track of your other symptoms and report them to your doctor. He or she can help you determine the root cause of the problem.

In some cases leg numbness can be a sign of a herniated disk. A herniated disk occurs when damage is done to the disks that separate the bones of the spine. Large nerves branch out from the spinal cord between these disks. If a disk is damaged, it can put pressure on these nerves, causing patients to experience pain or numbness.   Excessive use of alcohol or tobacco can cause damage to nerves, leading to numbness. A lower back injury may also cause numbness or tingling in the leg. Talk to your doctor about this numbness for guidance on how best to treat this problem.

Leg numbness and the circulatory system

Numbness in the legs can be a result of poor circulation.  If blood cannot efficiently circulate through your legs, tingling and numbness can result. You may have noticed that if you sit in a cramped position, your legs “fall asleep,” leading to tingling and numbness. This is a result of poor circulation.

Problems in the circulatory system are also associated with varicose veins. These veins occur when cell wall elasticity deteriorates to the point where blood is not effectively transported back to the heart. Instead, it pools back into the veins in the leg, causing swelling and bulging varicose veins. Some patients report numbness in the leg around a varicose vein.

When to worry about leg numbness

In the vast majority of cases, leg numbness is not a symptom of a life threatening condition. However, there are a few situations where you should seek immediate medical help if numbness is present. Go to the hospital or call an ambulance if your numbness is accompanied by paralysis, a lack of control over leg movement, a loss of consciousness, slurred speech, difficulty walking, or a change in vision. You should also contact a medical professional if the numbness occurs immediately after a head, neck, or back injury.

If your leg numbness is a symptom of a varicose vein, it is not a medical emergency. However, this sort of vein disease is associated with potentially dangerous complications, including deep vein thrombosis and venous stasis ulcers. This problem can be addressed by working with a leading vein doctor like Dr. John Chuback.

Dr. Chuback and the team of spider vein specialists here at Chuback Medical Group have a number of vein disease treatments at their disposal to help eliminate the symptoms of varicose veins, including numbness. If you are worried about any of the symptoms of vein disease, get in touch with our office to set up a consultation. Leg numbness is rarely a sign of a life threatening issue, but that does not mean your only option is to live with it.
