Raynaud’s disease is when the small arteries that circulate blood in the extremities, such as the hands and feet, become narrow due to vapospasms. Vapospasms are contractions that can occur due to stress or cold temperatures. The result is the affected areas feeling numb and cold as a result of the restricted blood circulation. It most commonly affects women and those living in cold climates. Raynaud’s disease usually does not involve treatment, aside from exercising to maintain good circulation and keeping warm with thick gloves and socks in cold weather. There are medications available to treat the disease if symptoms worsen.

Absolutely the best!! I was recommended to Dr. Hochstein after a unsuccessful bunion surgery where I had been through 5 months of pain, excessive swelling, and eventually a non-Union.

Dr. Alec Hochstein and his staff at Great Neck Family Foot Care are terrific. I have had a diabetic wound that would not heal for 15 years. In 8 visits the wound is healed and I can work and walk without pain or swelling. He is very competent, professional and sometimes funny. He answers question […]
I have been a patient of Dr. Alec Hochstein for over 5 years. Dr. Hochstein and staff are like family. When anyone in my family ever has a foot complaint, or injury, and their have been many, I know help is only a phone call away. Although they are always busy, I have never had […]
