Vascular surgeon Dr. Charles Dietzek has moved to a new facility in Voorhees that doubles the size of his Vein and Vascular Institute to 5,500 square feet.

Dietzek made the move to accommodate the more than four-fold growth of his practice over the past decade, reflecting the development of new, less invasive outpatient procedures for treating varicose veins and other vein diseases.

Vein disease "tends to be a chronic, nagging problem," for patients, Dietzek said, but if left untreated the problem can progress and result in serious conditions, such as ulcers. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that the typically protrude above the skin on the legs, and occur when the veins do not function properly.

"The world of treatment has changed dramatically," since about 2000, he said. "Where treatment used to be operative procedures in the hospital, now we are able to do procedures in the office setting that can take less than an hour, and patients can walk out of the office and go about their normal activities."

Dietzek said he expects to perform about 1,200 procedures this year.
