-welcome to "good circulation," a program where we talk about the health of the circulatory and cardiovascular systems. in the voices of real patients from the clinic heartvein nyc, we will learn their stories, how they found the right treatment to get rid of leg pain and other symptoms caused by venous insufficiency and heart problems. venous insufficiency and other problems of the circulatory system don't discriminate. just ask kelby bailey, who is only 20 years old and had been suffering a great deal because of problems with his legs. -my legs were very achy. they were very tired. and when i would try to exercise, they would swell up and they would hurt. and at night, i would have to move my legs,
-because kelby was extremely overweight, he thought that was the cause of his problems. -i thought that if i lost weight that my legs wouldn't be so tired. but it helped a little bit, but the pain was still there every time i tried to exercise in the gym. -kelby has been suffering from his legs probably around three years, you know. he was very overweight, you know. he almost reached 280 pounds. you know, he was very frustrated, like, with no energy, always complaining about his legs. and you know, he started a diet, you know, trying to get rid of the pain and the suffering from his legs. -but even after losing a lot of weight, the pain didn't go away. -he lost a total of like 60 pounds, but that's when it got worse. his legs --
it was gigantic, you know? it was like -- i don't know how to describe it. it was very ugly. and every time he touch it or do some exercise, the back of the leg swells very, very big. i was very nervous, you know, very concerned. you know, i'm a very caring father. -one day, kelby's father, who is a very well-known deejay called "hugh b. el psycho," met dr. kim at the radio station and learned about the various diseases of the circulatory system, including the veins. -the way to describe venous insufficiency is you think of your veins -- you have arteries and veins. veins bring blood to your heart, arteries take blood away from your heart. so, when the valves break, instead of the blood going up, it stays down, and that can cause a bunch of symptoms, such as what we say protruding veins, varicose veins.
other people can say they have tired legs. but more commonly, they're associated with varicose veins. -mr. bailey complained of bilateral leg pain. he thought that the pain was coming from obesity, but after losing substantial weight, his leg pains persisted. the diagnosis of venous insufficiency was made after a venous sonogram. a venous ablation treatment was performed, and mr. bailey feels his legs to be much lighter and can exercise with no leg pain. -dr. kim prescribed two treatments, one on each leg, to completely get rid of the problem. -oh, the procedure was very quick, it was easy. and the recovery time was really quick. it was less than a day, i was back to normal. i was able to walk out after, but after i got home, i just laid down.
-the change was automatically. since the first procedure in his first leg, you know, after i saw him, i saw this smile, you know? so i was like, "wow," you know, "something happened." and he told me, "dad, you know, i feel my leg very light, like if i'm walking on air." -right away, i felt my leg so light, and it felt good. i don't know how to explain it. -the complication rate is very small because we do this on the ultrasound. the reason we do it on the ultrasound, we don't want to be into the deep system, because your deep system is very important, and we don't want to cause a blood clot. usually, patients walk in, they walk out. some people experience minor burning. -it was very quick. i thought it was gonna take all day. then i was out of here the same day. -yeah, same day -- i think it was very quick
it was enlarged from, like, months and years of insufficiency of that. -before the procedure, i was kind of scared because i didn't know, you know, the outcome, but...i think it's great. you know, i think it's great. if you have problems in your legs, if you have those ugly veins, you know, you got pain in your legs, you really got to come here. these people know what they're doing. they're very knowledgeable. it's party time. it's friday. -whoo! i would recommend it for anybody because it really works, and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. -walking is such a simple pleasure. walking is essential in life until one day, you can't do it. -my legs were very achy. they were very tired. -aching pains in my joints and legs. -let heartvein nyc help you recover the simple pleasure of walking again.
-and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. -three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain. and the great thing is, like, i can wear cute shoes. -when stephanie acierno was suffering from leg pain, she used to tell her friends that she wished she could get new bionic legs. -i was suffering from heavy legs and aching pains in my joints and legs. and my feet were swelling up, and my ankles were swelling. so, at the end of the day, if i went out walking, i had to come home and lay down and put my legs high above my heart so that the blood would drain back down my legs. and that would start to relieve the pain and the swelling,
but it would never go away. -although the symptoms got worse, stephanie went untreated for several years. -in like 2005 or 2006, at two different places, i got diagnosed with venous insufficiency in both legs. and both places, ironically -- two different hospitals or clinic affiliations -- the doctors both said "you cannot have any procedures." 'cause i knew of the venous ablation procedure, and i said, "can i have that done?" my friend who was pregnant and got varicose veins had that done, and i asked if i could have that done, and they said, "no, you're not a candidate for that. yours are too deep." -the remedies offered to her didn't help, especially when she had to stand all day long at work. -well, they prescribed compression stockings, which i have on now. and they have different amounts of compression. so, they compress the blood or they compress your skin
it helped a little but never long enough. and i was working, at the time, in a retail setting in manhattan. so, it was a long commute to manhattan, eight hours on my feet, and then a commute back home. and i was dead. it was killing me. and it was very, very painful every night. -the pain got so bad, she had to quit her job. she also stopped going out and couldn't have a normal life. -it's very depressing, and i basically became reclusive, because i love people and i love to go out and i love to see my friends. and i love walking, and, in fact, in 2007 and 2008, i had lost 55 pounds out walking through the pain. but then it just became so, so hard to even walk. then it's a vicious cycle, because now i stayed in more, and i gained more weight back.
so you start managing your tasks in the day. "well, i can do one thing per day. "i can go to the corner and get the pharmacy or the groceries and come home, and then i have to get off my feet." and it would be constantly walking somewhere and then come home and have to put the feet up. -it was a cardiology-related problem that brought her to heartvein nyc to consult with dr. kim. -in 2010, when i came to dr. kim for heart checkups, because he's a cardiologist, he -- i say it's the day i won the lottery, because he not only checked out my heart, and he found an abnormality with my left ventricle, but he went down to my legs, and he found the refluxes in my legs, which is the blood that's flowing back down and building up in your ankles. -stephanie complained of pain in the legs bilaterally due to venous insufficiency. -i didn't expect him to find anything wrong. so, when he found the left ventricle abnormality, i was pretty upset. and, basically, it relates back to obesity.
so, here we go back to my legs. but then, when he said, "well, let's do doppler on your legs," and i said, "well, i've had venous insufficiency diagnosed twice by two different doctors, and they said i can't have the procedures," and he says, "nonsense." -after performing a venous ultrasound, i came to the conclusion that she would be a good candidate for endovenous laser ablation. -i had two procedures, and they were both different. the left leg, we did first in june. they don't put you under with anaesthesia, but they do lidocaine shots, i guess -- something topical. and so i felt nothing -- in fact, the entire time, i was waiting for him to give me the shot to numb my leg. and then i just felt like someone was scratching my leg up and down, and he was actually doing the procedure, and i had no idea this was happening. and i kept saying, "well, when is the pain gonna come?
when is the pain gonna come?" so, there was really no pain. -before they performed venous ablation on her right leg, she thought her right foot was fractured. -my right foot was feeling like it was broken, ani swear to you that i'm not exaggerating in any way. my right foot felt like it was broken. and i was telling some friends on facebook, and one of them's an r.n. and she said, "you might have a neuropathic fracture." and, so, i told dr. kim that, and he said, "no, i think it's this. i think it's this." and sure enough, while i was on that table, while he was still working on the right leg, i felt my right foot just release. like, instead of feeling like heavy anvils, it just felt like a feather. that's the best analogy i can give you. it just lightened right up. and, so, i could feel him in there, and i felt a few pinches. but i got up from that table, and we got the stocking on, and i took the subway home. -her life has turned around completely, and now she's focused on losing the weight she gained
-huge difference, because then i say, "well, let me go do this," and "oh, it's nice out. let me go walk around the neighborhood. let me go to the library and print something out," or "let me go walk around by the playground or go get wet in the fountain and sit and read a book." you know, it just gets me back outside, like more -- more motivation to go out, because i'm feeling fine. so, why should i sit down now and watch tv or play a video game or sit and do paperwork? -one added bonus is that she can wear regular shoes instead of special shoes with orthotics. -the weather has broken the last week or two. i'm out three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain. and the great thing is, like, i can wear cute shoes out. i used to wear orthopedic-type shoes and orthotics. and i might pay $500 and have orthotics made. and i couldn't go anywhere without the compression stockings and the orthotics and the goofy-looking black sneakers
and i wore crocs here today. i'm wearing the crocs, and i have no pain! no pain. -and she no longer wishes for bionic legs. -in one word, i would say it's life-changing. in a few sentences, i would say, anyone who is suffering from this kind of pain, you don't have to suffer. i used to tell people if they could cut off my legs and give me bionic legs, i would do it. and they'd say, "no, you wouldn't. no, you wouldn't." and they didn't understand how serious i was. and now i feel like, well, i don't need bionic legs. i have my legs back. to have the luxury that i can go out walking and look at the beauty that's out there for four or five hours a day, most people would kill for that. i can't look like this anymore. [ laughs ] well, you gave me legs, and i have energy. now i have to get sexy, get my sexy back. [ both laugh ] -so, next time i see you, like, maybe in august, you know, the swimwear season, you'll be looking fantastic? -yeah, i'll come in in a bikini and a miniskirt.
-wow, that's so cool. -yeah. -walking is such a simple pleasure. walking is essential in life until one day, you can't do it. -my legs were very achy. they were very tired. -aching pains in my joints and legs. -let heartvein nyc help you recover the simple pleasure of walking again. -and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. -three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain. and the great thing is, like, i can wear cute shoes. -for several years now, harvey katz has had numerous health problems, including his heart and legs, that limit his walking and daily activities. -i have a blood clot that is blocking
the amount of blood that comes into my left side of the heart. and they've already done a bypass on one artery that had a blood clot, also. and i was still having difficulties, no matter what they tried. i was on all kinds of medication. and they sent me into the hospital, and they did an angiogram. and they found out that because of previous surgeries, they can't get into the area where the blood clot is now. -so, last year, his cardiologist suggested he consult with dr. back kim and see if e.e.c.p. therapy would help to improve the circulation and the blood flow. -good. how you doing? -good. -the fact that they couldn't get the wire to unblock the heart, and they can't do surgery because i have stents in that area,
plus the bypass that comes into that area, they had to leave it as it is. but they wanted to see if they could improve the blood flow somehow to make up for the artery that was lost. my heart, at this point, is absorbing it through the sides and the capillaries. and he suggested i come to see dr. kim. -e.e.c.p. therapy is an outpatient treatment for angina and heart failure. it is usually given for an hour a day. during treatment, you lie on a table with large blood-pressure-like cuffs wrapped around your legs and buttocks. the cuffs inflate and deflate between the patient's heartbeat. e.e.c.p. works by increasing the blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle and decreasing the amount of work the heart has to do to pump blood to the rest of the body. -they couldn't do anything by conventional methods,
but dr. romanello, he recommended him and said, "let him try his treatment with you. "it will improve, to some degree. "we don't know how much. "it's not gonna cure you, but if it gives you some relief. that's all we're looking for at this point." -mr. katz has had severe coronary artery disease and underwent multiple coronary stent procedures in the hospital. he still had severe angina despite all the procedures and was referred to my clinic for a cardiac therapy called e.e.c.p. -after having the pain in my legs for about 10 years, dr. kim did a sonogram and found out which veins were not operating completely. i had a reversed blood flow, and he said, "we have to close these off, because you start to pool the blood,
and that's what's giving you the pain." he says, "i can't cure the pain, but what we can do is reduce the pain," which is what has happened. -the venous laser ablations -- so, we're doing this procedure for the people who are suffering from venous insufficiency. so, basically, we insert a catheter to the vein, the diseased vein, and then we close it up, and, so, no more are patients kind of suffering from the pain or cramping or swelling, which from the venous insufficiency. -although he's not completely cured, harvey is feeling a great improvement, especially after the venous ablation treatment. -this was probably the biggest improvement, 'cause it reduced the pain level here tremendously -- i would say, about 75%.
it's only when i do too much, get carried away, and think that things are much better than what they are that this becomes inflamed. but that's not from dr. kim's department. it's due to the fact that i have a bad back and the nerves are in the legs, and you can't fix nerves. i feel better. i'm more alert. i know i just got finished saying i sleep most of the day, but when i go with people, i'm not tired. i'm not getting into a fog like i was before, where i couldn't stay awake, and i was nodding off. and now i can go with anybody and know i'm gonna be fine for at least five or six hours.
-and he is determined to continue his treatment to improve his blood circulation. -i feel better, yes. getting rid of the pain in the legs was the biggest thing that dr. kim has done, since they can't actually cure this. if he has improved the circulation in the heart, great. i keep on asking him, "have you improved it?" he says, "how do you feel?" i said, "i feel much better." he says, "there's your answer." so, he and i are on the same page. -walking is such a simple pleasure. walking is essential in life until one day, you can't do it. -my legs were very achy. they were very tired. -aching pains in my joints and legs. -let heartvein nyc help you recover the simple pleasure of walking again.
-and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. -three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain. and the great thing is, like, i can wear cute shoes. -in 2008, sara walker suffered a heart attack, and her primary doctor recommended that she see dr. kim at heartvein nyc. -my physician sent me to dr. kim. he was treating me for the problem with my heart. -under dr. kim's supervision, sara was able to stop taking all the pills she used to have to take for her heart, and she felt much better. -you don't have to be on medication. -but a few years later, she started having pain in her left leg. -every time i used to take the train or i was walking, i would get upper pressure in my thigh. it would hurt me, and i would get pain.
and painful cramp every night. -as time went by, the pain was so unbearable, she couldn't walk and was bedridden for three weeks. -i couldn't put pressure on my heel. i had pains, a lot of pain. and for three weeks, i could not walk. and that was a concern to me, because i love to walk and go shopping and do everything that people normally do. -sara has a history of atrial fibrillation, and she had symptoms of tightness and tingling and cramping of the legs from the thigh to the foot. -he did some analysis, and he told me i had a clot on my left thigh. so, he told me that we will laser. it will be okay -- that i will not have pain. it was gonna be outpatient procedure --
and that was it, and i will go home without pain, and i could go home walking, so i said, "that's fantastic," because i didn't want to know about pain. -i recommended for sara to get an atrial fibrillation ablation, which is an e.p.s. procedure, and also investigated the other symptoms of her legs by ordering a venous ultrasound, which showed that she needed an endovenous laser ablation. -so, what we do is we scan the deep system, make sure that there's no blood clots, and then we scan the superficial system to see the size of the superficial vein, to see if there's any varicose veins, to see if there's any perforating veins, and then we see how the blood is flowing through the vein. if it's backflowing through the vein, then we measure time. -it took around 30 minutes. for the therapy laser procedure, it only took, i think, 15 minutes. but while i recover, it was half an hour,
and i went home like nothing. and since then, let me tell you, i have not had thigh pain, heel pain, or cramp anymore. -endovenous thermal ablation, also called laser therapy, is a new technique that uses a laser of high-frequency radio waves to create intense local heat in the varicose veins or incompetent vein. heat is directed through a catheter to close up the targeted vessel. this treatment closes off the problem veins but leaves them in place so there is minimal bleeding and bruising. -i like to walk. i like to do things by myself. i don't like to depend on no one. so, my daughter works, my sons work, everybody's doing their own thing, and i couldn't go out, and i couldn't do nothing. i don't want to bother them to tell them to go shopping and do things for me. and it was painful, and it was sad, you know, because you normally cannot go out and do the things you enjoy, walking without problem.
right now, i'm very happy that i can walk without problem, without any pain. and i'm really very satisfied. -after the procedure, sara continues to be a cardiology patient of dr. kim. -the staff makes you feel comfortable in here. you come. you ask any question. they will answer you. and they try to accommodate you. and when you talk to the doctor, he's very nice. he understands. he listens to your problem. -mr. katz, we're ready for you. -and i'm really satisfied. my problem is gone already. i'm very satisfied, and i'm very content with the procedure. i recommend the procedure. i recommend dr. kim to anyone. -many people have been misdiagnosed. many people have been underdiagnosed. we take a holistic approach here at heartvein new york city.
we use nutrition, education. we do some non-invasive procedures and minimal medication. our objective is to get our patients back on their feet and keep them out of the hospital. it just adds tremendous quality to their lives and brings them back to their families. you got pain in your legs, you really got to come here. these people know what they're doing. they're very knowledgeable. it's party time. it's friday. -whoo! i would recommend it for anybody because it really works, and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. i'm not tired. now i can go with anybody and know i'm gonna be fine for at least five or six hours. i'm out three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain. and the great thing is, like, i can wear cute shoes out. i used to wear orthopedic-type shoes and orthotics.
and i couldn't go anywhere without the compression stockings and the orthotics and the goofy-looking black sneakers or, you know, nurse-shoes kind of thing. and i wore crocs here today. -walking is such a simple pleasure. walking is essential in life until one day, you can't do it. -my legs were very achy. they were very tired. -aching pains in my joints and legs. -let heartvein nyc help you recover the simple pleasure of walking again. -and you notice the results right away. and it really does change your life. -three, four, five hours a day, and i don't feel the pain.
