Dr Navarro Now Referring Patients to Dr Al-Misky
Before Dr Luis Navarro’s retirement at the end of 2023, he emailed patients, “…we would highly recommend Dr Ousaima Al-Misky for quality sclerotherapy…Dr Al-Misky was trained by myself and worked alongside me for many years. She has 20+ years’ phlebology experience & I believe she can provide our patients with a high level of care and expertise - she utilized the same protocols and methods that we developed for painless sclerotherapy & also treats hands, face, & breast.”
Dr Al-Misky is now practicing under the Vein Treatment Center name at her office at 910 Fifth Avenue, Ground Floor. Please call or text her office at 212-249-6117 or 212-888-8688.

Who We Are
Through a combination of treatment methods—EVLT, painless sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, and mini-phlebectomy, The Vein Treatment Center treats venous problems and alleviates the symptoms of venous disease, with the goal of always achieving the best cosmetic results.
Dr Ousaima Al-Misky began focusing on vein treatment in 2001 when she became the protégé of Dr. Luis Navarro, one of the pioneers in the field. At that time, Dr Navarro developed and patented the Endovenous Laser Ablation Technique (EVLT), a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in-office under local anesthesia and requires only a tiny nick in the skin. Patients are up on their feet immediately following procedure with no downtime and no scarring. Dr Al-Misky has trained in this path-breaking technology since its dawn over two decades ago.
The EVLT procedure modernized the field of phlebology by making traditional surgery for varicose veins obsolete, avoiding hospitalization and general anesthesia as well as large incisions and long recoveries.
Dr Al-Misky has also perfected the use of sclerotherapy for smaller veins, performing millions of injections with very fine needles on tens of thousands of patients.
The goal of The Vein Treatment Center is to treat varicose and spider veins, in order to achieve the fastest and best cosmetic result with minimal discomfort.
Dr Al-Misky began specializing in the treatment of varicose and spider veins in 2001. Her specialization and decades of experience in using the latest techniques leads to superior results.
Most of our patients seek treatment because their varicose or spider veins represent a cosmetic issue- patients consider them unsightly and want them to be removed. Varicose vein above a certain size and symptomatology may also be considered a medical problem, though it hardly ever becomes a serious medical issue or results in venous insufficiency.
Our practice efforts are geared towards patients' goals. All testing and procedures are done on premise, ensuring that patient safety and comfort is our first priority. Our office is serene and clean. We strive to provide our patients with a comfortable atmosphere where they can feel relaxed and welcomed at all times. Our staff is specially selected for their attentiveness to patient needs and always strives to maintain the highest professional standards.
