Types of Vein Disease We Care For


Vein disease specialists diagnose, treat and manage:


Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): Blood clots form in the veins, often in the lower extremities. Clots can become large enough to affect blood flow resulting in swelling and pain. In some cases, a piece of the clot can break off and travel to the lungs causing a potentially life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Even with proper treatment, there can be complications, such as chronic leg swelling, skin changes and leg ulcers. Large clots and chronic deep vein disease require advanced care. We have experience with sophisticated, minimally invasive techniques that have helped many patients achieve successful outcomes.

Pulmonary embolism: 
A blood clot in another body area travels through the bloodstream and gets stuck in a lung artery. This is a potentially life-threatening condition requiring emergency treatment.

Varicose veins and spider veins: These abnormal, small vein formations develop just below the skin’s surface making them highly visible. But they are rarely a sign of a serious health issue. We often treat varicose veins and spider veins using sclerotherapy. This typically painless in-office procedure involves injecting a substance that causes abnormal veins to collapse and disappear.

Venous thoracic outlet syndrome: Also known as effort thrombosis or Paget Schroetter syndrome, this condition occurs when there’s narrowing in a blood vessel near the collarbone (subclavian vein). It can cause painful arm swelling and blood clots. If medications to dissolve the clots are not successful, it may require removal.  We use minimally invasive techniques followed by a surgical excision just below the clavicle allowing patients to return to their usual activities quickly.
