Less Invasive Techniques to Help You Get You Back to Your Life

The BHS Center for Advanced Vein Care specializes in using minimally invasive vascular surgical procedures for patients with vascular conditions. These techniques involve the use of advanced imaging tools such as computerized tomography (CT) scans, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in order to direct small, specialized instruments such as needles, wires, or catheters (narrow tubes) to different areas of the body for the conduction of advanced procedures.

What Are the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Procedures?

Procedures that at one time required open surgery can now be treated in a way that minimizes physical trauma to the body, reduces infection rates, lowers recovery time, and can shorten hospital stays. Minimally invasive techniques represent an exciting development in vein care. These techniques protect patients and improve outcomes.

Varicose Veins: More Than Skin Deep

Varicose veins are not just cosmetic annoyances. They can cause pain, swelling, aching, compromised circulation, and even an increased risk of developing a blood clot. There are many reasons to consider removing varicose veins. We encourage you to speak with our vascular experts at BHS Center for Advanced Vein Care about your options.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): Know the Risks

Patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) could see improvement with some healthy lifestyle changes. Without following your doctor's orders for treatment of PAD, you could be at risk for serious side effects such as heart disease, stroke, and/or loss of a limb. You could also experience chronic, ongoing pain that affects your mobility and quality of life. Exercise, eating right, and avoiding tobacco products could help you control your condition and lower the risks of major side effects. Ask your care provider about treatment options for PAD and how you can decrease your risk of serious complications.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are swollen veins that bulge out from the skin as blue or purple lumps. In addition to the cosmetic effect, varicose veins can have a detrimental impact on your overall health. The condition is develops when the veins in your legs fail to open properly and push blood back down the legs. This eventually causes the entire vein system to break down as excess blood clogs pools in the legs. This can result in pain in the legs and dry, itchy skin. In extreme circumstances, the lack of blood flow can even result in a pulmonary embolism. You can prevent varicose veins by reducing the time you spend standing, taking short walks, and wiggling your toes from time to time. There are a number of treatments for the condition, including minor surgery, laser treatment, and medication injections.

Know the Risks of PAD

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a condition in which arteries clog or narrow, and make it difficult for blood to pass through the veins. This condition can result in leg pain, heart attack, and stroke. In severe cases, the blood flow to the leg can become so hampered that the limb will need to amputate. There are plenty of ways to improve PAD to prevent these drastic measures. If you smoke, quitting will be an instant benefit for the condition, eating healthier and exercising are also beneficial. Ask a doctor about specific exercises to improve your PAD.
