Decades of experience in vascular and arterial treatments.
With decades of experience solving complex medical problems with simple, minimally invasive procedures, we are experts in a wide variety of vascular and arterial treatments. Below are many of the common conditions we treat, and procedures we perform.
Fibroids are benign, non-cancerous growths within or on the muscular walls of the uterus. Our team offers diagnosis and minimally invasive treatment with the patient’s best interest in mind.
Wounds & Ulcers
Non-healing ulcers and wounds are not a disease but a symptom of an underlying condition. Over 85% of lower extremity wounds have an arterial, venous, or mixed arterial and venous cause. We are experienced experts are determining why a wound or ulcer is not healing.
Varicose veins are twisted, bulging veins that commonly protrude above the skin. However, they are not always visible to the naked eye. The veins become enlarged when the valves stop functioning. At VIE we offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment for your varicose veins.
Varicoceles are a common cause of testicular pain and infertility. When treated using embolization patients can expect a greater than 95% success rate and return to normal activity almost immediately.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
PAD is common, affecting about 20% of Americans over 60 years old. Patients with PAD have reduced life expectancy. Correct diagnosis is extremely important so that appropriate risk factor optimization and medical management can be instituted.
Exertional Leg Pain
Leg pain when walking is often due to blockages in the arteries of the leg and is called claudication. Accurate diagnosis requires a test called an exercise ankle brachial index.
Deep Venous Thrombosis
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) causes leg pain and swelling and is mainly diagnosed with a simple ultrasound examination. If symptoms persist after initiating anticoagulation, endovascular techniques can be used to remove blood clot and restore blood flow.
Leg swelling is an extremely common complaint and impacts quality of life significantly. There are many causes of leg swelling which requires an expert to thoroughly evaluate.
Pelvic Venous Disease
Pelvic venous disease (also known as pelvic congestion syndrome) is a medical condition that causes chronic pelvic pain. The condition is thought to be due to problems with the enlarged veins in your pelvic area. The most successful treatment is a procedure called pelvic vein embolization (PVE).
Fallopian Tube Recanalization
A common cause of female infertility is a blockage of the fallopian tubes, usually as the result of debris Fallopian tube recanalization (FTR) is a nonsurgical procedure to clear blockages in the fallopian tubes.
Image Guided Biopsy
Outpatient biopsy can be safely performed in most patients. At VIE we utilize ultrasound and computed tomography.
Unfortunately, too many patients undergo unnecessary amputation for ulcers. At VIE, we ensure that every patient receives the best in advanced technologies, techniques, and expertise to enable wound healing and, ultimately, limb preservation.
At VIE, we perform the spectrum of venous access procedures for patients that require chemotherapy or other reasons
Restless legs, a common complaint, can be caused by veins in the leg that are not working. An ultrasound study looking at how the veins are working can help determine if they are the cause.
