RAI Vein Center at Lawrenceville

RAI is proud to announce the opening of  The Vein Center at Lawrenceville.  In the past, treating varicose veins required invasive surgery that was followed by a long recovery period.  Now, with endovenous laser therapy, we are able to get rid of unsightly varicose veins with a simple procedure performed right in a doctor’s office.The patient is awake during the procedure and can walk out of the office immediately afterward.

The procedure is performed by an experienced interventional radiologist who uses laser energy to treat the varicose veins. The best part is that endovenous laser therapy causes only minimal discomfort, which means the patient can return to normal activities the same day.

We at The Vein Center at Lawrenceville are happy to announce that we now offer this procedure, along Radiofrequency Venous Ablation and Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins. Most cases are covered by medical insurance. If you or someone you know is considering varicose or spider  vein treatment, contact Joan Veltri, Vein Center Coordinator at (800) 251-RAIVEIN.

Mammograms decrease breast cancer deaths by 30%

ABC News is reporting that the longest-running study of breast cancer screening PROVES that regular mammograms save lives - and more lives than previously thought.They prevent cancer deaths, and the number of lives saved increases over time.

The researchers found that seven years of mammograms made for 30 percent fewer breast cancer deaths years down the road, when compared with women who didn't receive mammograms.

That translates to 15 to 20 thousand lives a year.

Past studies only looked 7 to 10 years down the road, so the benefit didn't seem as large.

And that's what the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force used when it recommended in 2009 that routine mammograms not start till age 50, and that they end at 75. It cited the large number of mammograms needed to save a life, and a higher risk of false positives that might lead to unneeded biopsies and other tests.

The new study of 130,000 Swedish women says that it only takes 414 to 519 screenings to save on life.

Some cancer experts say the benefits are probably even bigger now, because mammogram technology has improved so much since the study started.

The study in Sweden didn't specifically address the controversy over screenings for women between 40 and 49 years of age, because it didn't break down the risk according to age.

Despite the federal recommendations, the American Cancer Society continued calling for mammograms to start at 40.
