ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is a diagnostic tool which utilizes sound waves to provide a picture of the inside of the body.

ARTERIAL

An artery is a muscular walled tube that provides transport of oxygenated blood from the heart to the body. Arteries and veins are both part of the circulatory system.

VEIN

A vein is a tube like vessel that provides transport of oxygen-depleted blood from the body back to the heart. Veins and arteries are both part of the circulatory system.

THORACIC

The Thorax is the part of the body which holds the major organs for Respiration and Circulation, mainly the Heart and Lungs.

Procedures and Surgeries:

  • Arteries: We are able to offer multiple different surgical options for vascular needs. Often times we are able to perform repair of blockages and even aneurysms with a simple catheter approach. This endovascular approach allows for quicker healing times which will allow the return of normal activities much sooner than the open options. However, there are times in which an open surgical repair is the best treatment for the longevity of the vessel.

  • Veins: We utilize a radiofrequency catheter for vein closure. This allows for a lower heat to be utilized while closing the veins. Sclerotherapy is an office based procedure that can be utilized to close off poorly working veins.

  • Lungs: VATS (Video Assisted Thoracoscopy) can be utilized by making 3 very small incisions and using a camera to assist in the procedure. An open repair or Thoracotomy may be used for larger more extensive surgeries. Mediastinoscopy can be done with a small incision for the purpose of obtaining a biopsy for diagnosis.

Ultrasound

We provide both general and vascular ultrasounds for your diagnostic needs. These studies can take as little as fifteen minutes or up to an hour depending on the complexity of the study.

Lungs

Lungs provide oxygen to the blood. If you find yourself with a lung problem that requires a surgical treatment we can provide anything from a biopsy for diagnosis to resection for treatment and possible cure.

Vascular

Arteries carry oxygenated blood to the organs and tissues in your body from your heart. Veins return blood back from the organs and tissues to your heart to be replenished with oxygen. Problems with blood flowing away from and back to your heart can impede your health and ability to perform your normal daily activities.

Carotid Doppler

The carotid arteries are major blood vessels which provide blood flow to the brain. If one or both of these arteries have blockage it could increase your chance for a stroke. We are able to test for and treat blockages of the carotid arteries.

Treatment of vascular disease may include multiple steps. Often times, patients have not only venous but arterial disease. It is our job to narrow down the problem and focus on how to make your legs look and feel their best. Varicose Veins for instance are not always simply a cosmetic issue. They often cause pain and swelling which can affect your daily life. Additionally, Arterial blockages in your legs can also affect your ability to walk and function throughout the day.
