Identify Heart Problems with Our Vascular Ultrasound Doctors
Before the invention of sonography, physicians were unable to know the condition of the veins, bones, or internal organs of the body. There may have been indications of problems, but without actually seeing them, vascular medicine was not very precise. Today, our vascular ultrasound doctors use sonography to see and diagnosis a wide range of vein problems.
Now, we are able to identify blockages in the heart, the carotid artery, and other locations. Our ultrasound specialists do not use needles or scalpels, because the procedure is non-invasive and pain free. We use this diagnostic tool for a number of reasons:
- See Blood Flow in Your Heart
- See Blood Flow in the Arteries of Your Neck
- Determine If There Is an Enlarged Artery (Aneurysm)
- Identify Blood Clots in the Veins of the Arms & Legs
- Determine the Source & Severity of Varicose Veins

Sclerotherapy Treats Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
About 55% of women in the United States have spider veins and varicose veins – and approximately 45% of men. If left untreated, these problems lead to blood clots, inflammation, pain, and other issues. One of the most effective ways to remove varicose and spider veins is through a procedure called sclerotherapy. Using a small needle, our physicians inject a solution into the vein. This closes off the veins, causing blood to flow to healthier veins. In several weeks, the abnormal veins are absorbed by the body, creating vein-free legs.
A Vein Doctor for Vascular Dementia and Cardiovascular Disease
Nothing is more important than your health and wellbeing. Vascular problems go much further than skin deep. For instance, vascular dementia and cardiovascular disease are serious problems that are debilitating and life threatening. Vascular dementia is caused by an inadequate supply of blood to the brain. Cardiovascular disease relates to plaque buildup in the veins and arteries. Fortunately, we offer innovative solutions for patients who are dealing with serious vein issues.
