When the wall of a blood vessel weakens, a balloon-like dilation called an aneurysm sometimes develops. This diagnosis may require close follow-up or surgical repair with a stent.
Varicose veins can occur in almost anyone and affect up to 35% of people in the United States. We employ a multi-tier approach
include exercise, wearing compression socks, and office-based laser vein therapy.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
PAD is a chronic disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries to the legs. This disease process may lead to debilitating leg pain or nonhealing wounds, requiring minimally invasive techniques including angioplasty or stent placement, or performing an arterial bypass surgery.
The carotid arteries are the main arteries in your neck that supply blood to your brain. A substance called plaque accumulates inside your arteries as you age which may put a patient at risk for stroke. This disease process can be closely watched or may require surgery with a stent or open surgery.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Occurs when your blood thickens in a clump that becomes solid, forming a clot. Nearly 300,000 first-time cases of DVT occur in the U.S. every year, usually in the leg.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency
If you have CVI, valves in your veins (usually in the leg or sometimes the arms) don’t work, causing blood to pool in your legs and putting increased pressure on the walls of the veins. Patients who develop symptomatic CVI, may benefit from office-based laser vein surgery.
