Vein Clinic

Many people think that varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem. However, these conditions are often symptoms of a more severe problem: venous reflux disease, chronic venous insufficiency, and deep vein thrombosis. These are progressive diseases with dangerous health impacts. The Cardiology Associates of South Florida offer a wide variety of non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments designed to fit your flexible lifestyle. All procedures are conducted in the office, with no need for a hospital stay.

Our vein specialists are here to help you treat venous disease so you can take control of your health and life. At Cardiology Associates Of South Florida, specially trained doctors perform all venous procedures using advanced techniques and technologies. We offer non-surgical and outpatient treatment of varicose veins. Our treatments require no downtime and no sedation.

A medical evaluation is needed to provide accurate and long-lasting treatment of your condition. All of them are minimally invasive. We also take your medical and family history into account.

After your medical history has been reviewed, we conduct a physical examination. Because vein issues can signify a more serious underlying condition, several tests will be conducted during the evaluation. We may also order a scan or blood test for a better diagnosis. There are several treatment options for problematic veins, but the proper treatment for you will be based on findings during your assessment.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Blood clots cause deep Vein Thrombosis in veins in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis can result in leg pain and swelling, but often it does not produce anything other than visible symptoms. An inactive lifestyle can cause blood clots in your legs. Developing Deep Vein Thrombosis is also common after long periods of being bedridden. Such as after accidents or surgical procedures.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are tangled veins that trap blood flow and cause purple discoloration in your skin as oxygen-laden red blood cells die. While any vein in the body can become varicose, discoloration is most often found in the legs from the pressure of lifelong use.
For many people, varicose veins and spider veins, a mild and common type of varicose veins, are just a cosmetic issue. However, for others, varicose veins can be painful. Rarely, serious health conditions can arise from varicose veins as veins become twisted and blocked.

Buerger’s Disease

Buerger’s Disease disease is a rare disease of the arteries and veins of the arms and legs. In Berg’s disease (also called thromboangiitis obliterans), blood vessels become inflamed, swollen, and may be blocked by a blood clot (thrombus). This eventually damages or destroys skin tissue and can lead to infection and gangrene. Burger disease usually first occurs in the arms and legs, ultimately affecting a large body area.
