Conditions We Treat at Center for Vascular Medicine

We know how important your vascular health is. At Center for Vascular Medicine, our board-certified vascular surgeons provide the highest level of vascular care, treating various vascular conditions including:

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS): 

Pelvic pain can have various causes, including musculoskeletal issues and ovarian cysts. Pelvic Congestion Syndrome is a vascular condition that affects the veins in the pelvic region, causing inadequate blood drainage. 

Pelvic congestion syndrome can be painful and is often misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed, especially in women. Our board-certified vascular experts can help you understand your symptoms and provide treatment tailored to your needs.

At the Center for Vascular Medicine, our vascular experts know how frustrating it can be not to see relief or have any answers for the complicated symptoms caused by pelvic congestion syndrome. That’s why we recommend that female patients experiencing chronic pelvic pain lasting for more than six months should visit a gynecologist first to rule out any gynecological causes for their pelvic pain and pressure symptoms. Pelvic congestion syndrome shares its symptoms with other diagnoses like fibroids, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, and more. Once these other possible causes are excluded, Center for Vascular Medicine can help you find a solution for your pelvic pain.

Men can also develop pelvic congestion syndrome. Men experiencing chronic pelvic pain, chronic testicular pain, pain during and after intercourse, as well as varicose veins on the buttocks and groin, should speak to their doctor about seeing a vascular specialist for a diagnosis. 

Our board-certified vascular specialists are dedicated to helping patients with chronic pelvic pain find the root vascular cause and providing treatment tailored to their needs. Ask your gynecologist for a referral to a Center for Vascular Medicine near you to get to the bottom of your chronic pelvic pain and help you improve your overall vascular health.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT):

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a medical condition that requires immediate attention. It happens when a blood clot forms in a deep vein, obstructing blood flow back to the heart and leading to serious health risks. If left untreated, the clot can dislodge, travel to the lungs, and cause a life-threatening pulmonary embolism (PE). Factors that can increase the risk of DVT include prolonged immobility, age, obesity, family history, and previous surgeries. For this reason, healthcare professionals must assess these risks thoroughly.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) symptoms usually occur in the affected limb, ranging from mild to severe. DVT symptoms may include swelling, pain when flexing the foot, redness, and warmth.  It's important because some patients experiencing deep vein thrombosis may not be symptomatic or have uncomfortable symptoms.  

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek immediate medical attention as this emergency requires prompt treatment. If you or someone you know is experiencing the above symptoms, please contact Center for Vascular Medicine immediately to schedule a consultation. If you cannot get a timely appointment, seek immediate medical treatment. 

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD):

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries, narrowing them and reducing blood flow to the legs, head, and organs, resulting in complications that could require amputation, as the arteries that carry blood away from the heart become blocked.

The board-certified vascular specialists at Center for Vascular Medicine are dedicated to preventing limb loss and improving the quality of life for people with PAD. Non-invasive treatments are typically preferred, but minimally invasive procedures are also available for advanced cases.

Globally, it's estimated that 200 million people have PAD. In the United States alone, 10 million people are affected, and half show no symptoms. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that PAD has a prevalence of 12-14%, which increases to 20% in people over the age of 75. Despite the widespread nature of this condition, only 25% of people with PAD receive treatment. 

Schedule an early appointment at one of our top-rated vein clinics. Early detection of peripheral arterial disease is crucial, as there may be no symptoms to identify the condition.

Healthcare professionals are vital in identifying PAD and referring patients for proper diagnosis and treatment. At our Center for Vascular Medicine locations, our compassionate team of vascular medicine specialists and support staff welcomes every patient. We provide comprehensive patient diagnoses utilizing ABI technology, ultrasonography, angiography, and venography. We also offer complete follow-up care and routine preventative evaluations, bringing decades of experience in advanced, minimally invasive, state-of-the-art endovascular techniques and procedures to improve the health and lives of those we serve.

May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS):

May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS), also known as Iliac vein compression syndrome, primarily affects women, especially between the ages of 20 and 45. MTS involves the compression of the left iliac vein by the right common iliac artery, which reduces blood drainage from the left leg. May-Thurner Syndrome can result in the development of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a type of blood clot that causes pain, swelling, and sometimes varicose veins in the affected leg.

Although MTS typically presents with symptoms on the left side, there have been instances of right-sided symptoms. May-Thurner syndrome is prevalent in pregnant women and less so in those who have never been pregnant, though it can also affect men, albeit rarely. Left untreated, MTS can lead to significant complications, underscoring the importance of early detection and treatment. 

Our vascular experts are here to guide you through your MTS diagnosis and treatment, helping restore vascular function and improve your quality of life through minimally invasive procedures. 

Chronic Venous Insufficiency:

It’s estimated that more than 25 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic venous insufficiency, including the pain and discomfort of poor circulation and varicose veins. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) occurs when the valves in the leg veins fail to function correctly, causing blood to pool in the veins. This can lead to pain, swelling, leg discoloration, ulcers, and sometimes bulging veins. However, the presence of varicose veins does not always indicate the presence of CVI. 

CVI can be caused by various factors, including genetics, aging, prolonged periods of sitting or standing, obesity, vein injuries, previous deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and even height. Common symptoms include swollen calves and ankles, itchy, flaky skin, leg cramps, and sensations of burning or heaviness. In some cases, stasis ulcers and a leather-like skin texture may also develop.

It is important to consult a doctor if you experience these symptoms, as the severity can vary. Without treatment, the condition worsens over time. The board-certified vascular specialists at Center for Vascular Medicine are here to help.

Wound Care (Limited Locations):

Wound care centers are specialized outpatient facilities that provide advanced medical care for patients with wounds that haven't significantly healed within five to seven days. Our top-rated wound care centers offer a more accessible and cost-effective alternative to traditional hospital care. 

At the Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine, our patients benefit from the latest clinical and advanced treatments. Our collaborative team of doctors, trained and certified in wound healing and amputation prevention, work together to assess each wound and create an optimal treatment plan. In this safe and comfortable setting, our skilled physicians, nurses, and wound specialists ensure top-tier care tailored to accelerate healing and improve outcomes using state-of-the-art wound care therapies and practices.
