What type of Vascular Conditions and Diseases are there?

We treat nearly all types of vascular disease and our team is ready to provide you with best care possible for your specific vascular condition.


Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
An abdominal aortic aneurysm, also called AAA or triple A, is a bulging, weakened area in the wall of the aorta (the largest artery in the body). 


Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
DVT is a condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in your veins, usually in the legs, and blocks normal blood flow. 


Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when extra cholesterol and other fats circulating in the blood collects in the artery walls that supply blood to your limbs. 

Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when the leg veins do not allow blood to travel back to the heart. 


Claudication is pain and/or cramping in the lower leg due to inadequate blood flow to the muscles. The pain usually causes the person to limp. 


Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
PE is a blood clot that develops in a blood vessel elsewhere in the body (most commonly from the leg), travels to an artery in the lung, and forms an occlusion (blockage) of the artery. 


Raynaud’s Phenomenon
Raynaud's phenomenon or simply, Raynaud's, is a disorder characterized by decreased blood flow to the fingers and less frequently to the ears, toes, nipples, knees or nose. 


Renal Vascular Disease
Renal vascular disease is the name given to a variety of complications that affect the arteries and veins of the kidneys. 


Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are visible through the skin and may appear as blue or purple twisted, knot-like cords. Varicose veins can occur anywhere in the body, but are more commonly found in the legs.
