Vascular specialists that coastal Charleston counts on

For years, people throughout the coastal Charleston area have turned to our vascular physicians for their expertise in safe and effective treatment. Our new affiliation with Roper St. Francis Healthcare allows us to reach more patients and families across the Lowcountry. Our services include everything from resolving uncomfortable varicose veins to the life-saving treatment of pulmonary embolisms and aortic aneurysms. We make this comprehensive care as convenient as possible at locations throughout the coastal Lowcountry, including in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, Walterboro, and surrounding areas.

We offer the latest minimally invasive procedures for vascular diseases. Compared to traditional surgery, minimally invasive procedures cause less pain and help you recover faster. Our doctors have years of experience using these modern techniques. Other non-surgical options may also be appropriate for you, including medications or lifestyle and habit changes to help you manage your condition.

Still, traditional surgical options (also called open vascular surgery) may be best for some patients. In those cases, our board-certified surgeons have specialized training and have performed hundreds of procedures. This means we have the expertise to make your treatment as safe and effective as possible.

We look forward to bringing you the expert care you deserve, now as part of Roper St. Francis Healthcare. We take great pride in getting to know each patient and in tailoring to care to exactly what you need. Call our office today to make an appointment or to transfer your care to our new practice.

Artery conditions and treatments

Your arteries are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from your heart and lungs to the rest of your body. Issues with your arteries can affect the rest of your health. Our Charleston area coastal vascular specialists are trusted to help you with a wide range of arterial diseases, including:

  • Aortic aneurysm, a weakened bulge in the largest artery called the aorta.
  • Aortic occlusive disease, a blockage or narrowing of the aorta.
  • Atherosclerosis, a buildup of cholesterol and plaque in the arteries.
  • Carotid artery disease (CAD), a blockage or narrowing of the carotid arteries that lead to the brain and can increase stroke risk.
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD), a blockage or narrowing of the arteries in your legs or arms.
  • Pulmonary embolism, a potentially life-threatening artery blockage in the lungs, caused by blood clots.
  • Renovascular conditions, vascular diseases that affect your kidneys such as renal artery stenosis or aneurysm.

Treatment of these arterial diseases range from common and minimally invasive procedures to more complex surgeries. You can rely on our team of vascular specialists to have the steady hands and years of experience needed. Treatment options include:

  • Angioplasty, the placement of a small balloon through a catheter to open blocked coronary, peripheral, renal or carotid arteries.
  • Stenting, a procedure similar to angioplasty that implants a permanent mesh tube inside the affected artery to keep it open for blood to flow freely.
  • Atherectomy, a minimally invasive option to remove plaque from your arteries to restore healthy blood flow.
  • Carotid endarterectomy to clear plaque from arteries leading to the brain and reduce stroke risk.
  • Open bypass surgery to reroute blood flow around an arterial blockage.

Vein conditions and treatments

After arteries have delivered blood throughout your body, your veins return that blood back to your heart and lungs using valves. Our experienced team can help you with all vein conditions, including:

  • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), damaged vein valves in your legs that can lead to clotting.
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), blood clots that cause a blockage in a deep vein in the legs or pelvis and can also travel to the lungs, resulting in pulmonary embolism.
  • Spider veins, small, web-like veins visible just under the skin due to poor blood flow.
  • Varicose veins, larger, blue-colored veins that can be seen on your legs and are visibly swollen, twisted or bulging from blood pooling or flowing backward due to valve damage.

We offer the latest, most innovative approaches to caring for these venous conditions, including:

  • Minimally invasive endovascular procedures such as ClosureFast™ and VenaSeal™.
  • Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement and removal to reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism by trapping blood clots due to DVT.
  • Microphlebectomy to remove damaged sections of veins.
  • Nonsurgical options including blood thinner medications (anticoagulants) and compression devices to improve blood flow.
  • Sclerotherapy injections such as Asclera® and Varithena® that close off varicose veins, spider veins and veins damaged by CVI.
  • Thrombectomy to remove blood clots.
  • Thrombolysis, a minimally invasive procedure that dissolves blood clots
