We Utilize the Latest & Safest Medical Technology
When it comes to your vein health, our Vein Treatment experts will help you get there!
Venous Insufficiency Vein Treatment
RFA Closure Procedure: This is used to treat incompetent greater saphenous veins and lesser saphenous veins. The closurefast procedure uses radiofrequency energy or heat to close the diseased vein. This then redirects blood flow to healthy veins, relieving symptoms.
Varithena: Used to treat incompetent great saphenous veins, accessory saphenous veins, and visible varicosities of the great signor’s saphenous vein above and below the knee. The injection of a foam sclerosant with ultrasound compression maneuvers to guide the dispersion of the foam.
Sclerotherapy: This is a nonsurgical procedure, requiring only an injection. It is used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. The injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel causing it to collapse.
PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease) Treatment
We provide endovascular procedures such as angioplasty, atherectomy, and arterial bypass. Using special technology Milner Vein & Vascular surgeons are able to perform these minimally invasive procedures inside the blood vessel to help increase blood flow around a narrowed or blocked artery.
Angioplasty: In this minimally invasive procedure, a small, hollow tube (catheter) is threaded through a blood vessel to the affected artery. A small balloon on the tip of the catheter is inflated to reopen the artery and flatten the blockage into the artery wall, while at the same time stretching the artery open to increase blood flow.
Stent: A stent is a tiny mesh framework in the shape of a tube that is placed in an artery to keep it open. Stents are often used in other procedures, such as angioplasty.
Atherectomy: An atherectomy is a minimally invasive procedure to open blocked arteries by using a device on the end of a catheter to remove atherosclerotic plaque.
Amputation is the removal of a limb (arm or leg) or part of an extremity (foot, toe, hand or finger/s) when alternative treatment is not available or has failed, to remove bone and tissue due to:
- Extensive infection.
- Lack of blood supply.
- Significant trauma.
- Severe burns.
Lower Extremity Bypass Graft
Lower extremity bypass, leg bypass, fem-pop bypass, fem-tib bypass, fem-distal bypass.
IN THE ABDOMEN, also called aortic bypass, aorto-iliac bypass, aorto-femoral bypass, fem-fem bypass, aorto-mesenteric, and ax-fem bypass, depending on which blood vessel is being bypassed.
With the help of a natural or synthetic graft, a surgical bypass routes blood flow around an area of blockage caused by peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The surgery does not cure the disease or remove the blockage. Think of a surgical bypass as a road detour.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose Veins are often misunderstood as simply a cosmetic issue but when left untreated they can progress into a more serious condition called chronic venous Insufficiency. In addition, they are sometimes hereditary, caused by pregnancy, obesity, prolonged standing, or age.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a procedure done in the office where the physician makes slit-like incisions to remove the incompetent vein. This procedure is usually done to treat protruding varicosities.
As a result, this procedure usually follows the closure procedure depending on how the vein reacts after the RFA procedure has been done.
Dialysis Access Management Treatment
If your kidneys fail, unless and until you have a successful kidney transplant, you will need dialysis therapy to clean and filter your blood. The first step is establishing dialysis access one of three ways:
- A tunneled catheter in your neck—temporary, because the possibility of infection is high.
- An AV fistula—taking a piece of a vein from your arm or leg and sewing it into a nearby artery, and allowing the sewn-in vein to enlarge and become thicker, like an artery. Considered the best option because it has the lowest risk of infection.
3. An AV graft—the sewing of a prosthetic graft between an artery and vein in your arm or leg. The preferred option if your veins are too small for an AV fistula. AV grafts tend to close more quickly and are more prone to infection because they are not formed from natural tissue.
