All About: Capital Region Vein Centre


Kids are awesome, but sometimes the affect that being pregnant and giving birth has on our bodies is not so awesome.  I definitely noticed more stretch marks and unsightly varicose veins after each pregnancy.  I was happy to learn about Dr. Fort and the Capital Region Vein Centre located in Schenectady!  Check them out for yourself…

About Dr. Fort and the Capital Region Vein Centre

Capital Region Vein CentreCapital Region Vein Centre Capital Region Vein Centre was founded in 1995 and is the premier center in Upstate New York for the treatment of patients with varicose veins, spider veins and other related vein problems.

The Centre uses the latest state of the art techniques to eliminate your varicose veins and the symptoms they cause as well as restoring the healthy appearance of your legs. The Centre was the first to perform the non-surgical ablation procedure called VNUS Closure® now known as Venefit™ Targeted Venous therapy. Dr. Fort is also trained and has extensive experience in all of the available and latest minimally invasive techniques such as leg sclerotherapy, Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, Ambulatory Phlebectomy and Hand Vein Sclerotherapy. This means that our patients will receive the best, most effective and safest treatment for their vein problems.

Dr. Frank G. Fort, board certified by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine and the American Board of Surgery has successfully treated thousands of patients with minimally invasive procedures garnering success rates higher than the national average.

“We offer the complete treatment of the patient from beginning to end,” says Dr. Fort. “We do it in a manner that meets the high expectations of women.”

According to Dr. Fort more than 90% of his patients are women. He attributes this to the fact that “women tend to access health care more and that vein disease doesn’t affect men as much as women.” While the cause of vein disease is not known there are risk factors that make one more susceptible to the formation of vein issues including aging, genetics, estrogen and progesterone hormones and multiple pregnancies.

What to Expect

During your initial visit Dr. Fort will evaluate your condition and give you a complete vein examination. Dr. Fort knows that patients requiring treatment may be anxious and have many unanswered questions. In addition, Dr. Fort believes that education of his patients is a very important part of their consultation. As we evaluate each patient, we educate him or her about venous reflux disease in an easy and understandable way. Whether the problem is spider veins or venous insufficiency, patients learn how to choose the treatment option that will help them achieve their desired goals.

The doctor provides a thorough discussion and answers as many questions as necessary to make you understand your condition and your treatment options.
