We Utilize the Latest & Safest Medical Technology

When it comes to your vein health, Milner Vein & Vascular will help you get there!

WE PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING TREATMENTS

Venous Insufficiency Treatment

RFA Closure Procedure Used to treat incompetent greater saphenous veins and lesser saphenous veins.

The closurefast procedure uses radiofrequency energy or heat to close the diseased vein, which 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 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.

Varicose Veins 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.

Varicose Veins 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.

This procedure usually follows the closure procedure depending on how the vein reacts after the RFA procedure has been done.

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.
  • Frostbite.
  • Severe burns.
  • Wounds.

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.

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: 

  1. A tunneled catheter in your neck—temporary, because the possibility of infection is high.

     

  2. 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.

Carotid Artery Disease Treatment

A carotid endarterectomy is a surgical procedure to open or clean the carotid artery with the goal of stroke prevention. It is a durable procedure but not a cure; though rare, a blockage can accumulate again.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Endovascular repair is a preferred treatment for many people with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), and an alternative for some who do not qualify for open surgery.
 

An aortic dissection is a tear in the lining of the aorta that creates two blood flow channels. One channel, called the true lumen, feeds blood to most of the important branches of the aorta and is surrounded by the normal aortic lining. The second channel, called the false lumen, may only feed a few (if any) important branches.

Aortic dissection is a very complicated condition. Untreated, an aortic dissection can lead to death.

A thoracic aortic aneurysm or TAA is a bulging of the wall of the aorta, the main vessel that feeds blood from your heart to tissues and organs throughout your body. The aorta is normally about the size of a large garden hose. When the aorta expands to more than twice its normal diameter, it is called an aneurysm. When an aneurysm occurs in a portion of the aorta within your chest, it is called a thoracic (chest) aortic aneurysm or TAA.

Renal Artery Stenosis Treatment

Treatment for renal artery stenosis may involve lifestyle changes, medication or a procedure. Sometimes a combination of treatments is the best approach. Depending on your overall health and symptoms, observation may be all that you need.

Lifestyle changes

If your blood pressure is moderately or severely elevated, you may need to make certain lifestyle changes, such as:

  • Maintain a healthy weight or lose weight if you’re overweight
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Limit salt in your diet
  • Be physically active
  • Reduce your stress levels
  • Drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages in moderation, if at all
  • Don’t smoke

Medication

High blood pressure medication when mainly related to renal artery stenosis — often can be successfully treated with medications. Finding the right medication or combination of medications may require time and patience.

Mesenteric Artery Stenosis

Mesenteric artery stenosis occurs when narrowed or blocked arteries restrict blood flow to your small intestine. Decreased blood flow can permanently damage the small intestine.

Sudden loss of blood flow to the small intestine from a blood clot requires immediate surgery. Mesenteric artery stenosis that develops over time (chronic) is treated with angioplasty or open surgery.

Untreated, chronic mesenteric artery stenosis can become acute or lead to severe weight loss and malnutrition.

Symptoms of mesenteric disease include abrupt, severe abdominal pain, an urgent need to have a bowel movement, fever, nausea and vomiting.

DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) Treatment

Blood thinners Deep vein thrombosis is commonly treated with blood thinners. These can be injected or taken by pill can prevent blood clots from getting larger and traveling. 

Filters If you can’t take medication to thin your blood, you might have a filter placed into a larger Vein in your abdomen. A vena Cava filter to prevents clots that break loose from lodging in your lungs. 

Compression stockings These are worn to help prevent swelling associated with deep vein thrombosis, these are worn on your legs from your feet to the high thigh.

“I had an excellent experience with Dr. Milner and his staff. They were careful with everything before starting my procedure and were very efficient. I’ve already recommended him to a family member.”
