VEIN AND VASCULAR TREATMENTS

We offer many non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments for spider and varicose veins, as well as surgical treatment options for patients with vein disease. Please explore this list for more information on diagnosis and treatment options. If you don’t see a specific health concern or treatment stragegy listed below, please call us at 888.553.VEIN.
AAA REPAIR
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is a surgery to fix a weak and swollen area of the body’s main artery. Without treatment, the swollen area (aneurysm) can rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleeding.
ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM (AAA) REPAIR
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is a surgery to fix a weak and swollen area of the body’s main artery. Without treatment, the swollen area (aneurysm) can rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleedin
ABLATION
Ablation is a same-day, outpatient procedure that is often recommended for patients who want to reduce the effects or improve the appearance of varicose veins. Radiofrequency ablation heats and collapses abnormal vein tissue, allowing blood to flow naturally through surrounding healthy veins, and usually restores natural coloring to the skin around the treated area.
AORTA BYPASS
The body’s main artery is the aorta. Bypass surgery (constructing a new route of blood flow) may be necessary if the aorta becomes blocked by a blood clot or other cause. Aorta bypass in an in-patient procedure performed in a hospital operating room under general anesthesia.
AORTOGRAM/LOWER EXTREMITY ANGIOGRAM
Aortagram is an outpatient test that allows health care providers to examine the physical structure of the aorta (the body’s main artery, leading from the heart to the abdomen). A contrast dye is injected into the aorta, and X-ray images are taken to reveal the flow of blood and any unusual activity.
ARTERIAL & VENOUS STENTS
Blood flows away from the heart through arteries, and toward the heart through veins. Both arteries and veins have a thin interior barrier known as endothelium lining. This tissue normally helps blood to flow smoothly and freely; but it can be damaged by high blood pressure, lifestyle habits such as smoking, and other causes. If this happens, cholesterol and plaques can build up on the endothelium lining and restrict blood flow. Your healthcare provider can correct this situation by placing a stent (a tiny fabric or metal mesh tube) inside the blood vessel to restore proper flow and reduce the risk of health complications.
CAROTID ENDARTERECTOMY
Carotid arteries are the main blood vessels on each side of the neck that deliver blood to the brain. Reduced blood flow because of injury or blockage can cause a stroke, with life-threatening results. Carotid endarterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes build-up from the artery walls and restores normal blood flow, If you are a candidate for this procedure, your healthcare provider can advise whether it should be performed under local or general anesthesia, and as an inpatient or outpatient procedure.
DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS DVT EVALUATION & TREATMENT
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein deep within the body, often the thigh or calf. While the condition produces symptoms in only about half of patients, these may include: -Pain -Swelling -Red or discolored skin -Warmth around the area DVT is a serious medical condition that requires immediate attention. Without treatment, the clot can break free and travel to the heart or lungs, potentially causing death. The providers at Pinnacle Vein and Vascular use a number of modern techniques to diagnose DVT, including ultrasound and venography. Clots can often be dissolved with blood thinners, or broken down and removed
ENDOLUMINAL GRAFT ELG
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is a surgery to fix a weak and swollen area of the body’s main artery. Without treatment, the swollen area (aneurysm) can rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleeding.
ENDOVENOUS RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION VNUS CLOSURE
Ablation is a same-day, outpatient procedure that is often recommended for patients who want to reduce the effects or improve the appearance of varicose veins. Endovenous laser ablation uses a small fiber inserted into the varicose vein to heat and collapse abnormal tissue. Radiofrequency ablation also heats and collapses abnormal vein tissue, allowing blood to flow naturally through surrounding healthy veins, and usually restores natural coloring to the skin around the treated area. VNUS Closure® delivers radiofrequency energy and then heat to the damaged tissue to collapse it. Patients generally resume normal activity the same day.
IVC FILTER PLACEMENT & RETRIEVAL
IVC (inferior vena cava) filters help to prevent blood clots that have broken loose from the lower extremities, from traveling to the heart or lungs.
LEG BYPASS
Please see Peripheral Intervention
LYMPHEDEMA EVALUATION & TREATMENT
Swollen tissue from buildup of fluid containing protein and cell debris can sometimes result after treatment for cancer or DVT (deep vein thrombosis). There’s no cure for this condition, known as lymphedema, but Pinnacle Vein and Vascular healthcare providers offer a number of therapies to control pain, reduce swelling, and restore normalcy of life. Please allow us to discuss and identify appropriate therapies which may include: -Wraps or compression garments -Physical therapy -Massage -A combination of therapies and lifestyle changes
PERIPHERAL INTERVENTION ANGIOPLASTY STENT PLACEMENT ATHERECTOMY
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) causes reduced blood flow because of plaque buildup within the arteries. Patients with PAD often experience pain, cramping, or discomfort when moving or exercising, and a general sense of tiredness in the legs. In early stages of the disease, symptoms tend to be less severe when the patient is at rest. Pinnacle Vein and Vascular Centers offers a number of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches including: -Angioplasty, which uses a catheter to open up a blocked artery -Stent placement, in which a tiny fabric or metal mesh tube is placed inside a blood vessel to restore proper flow and reduce the risk of health complications -Atherectomy, which uses a catheter to scrape or scrub the inside of vessels at trouble points to restore healthy blood flow.
PELVIC CONGESTION SYNDROME
This syndrome is also known as pelvic vein incompetence and is a chronic medical condition in women caused by varicose veins in the lower abdomen. This condition causes chronic pain, often manifesting as a constant ache, which can be aggravated by standing. If you feel like you may have Pelvic Congestion Syndrome call 1.888.553.VEIN(8346) to schedule your consult today.
PHLEBECTOMY
Renal angiography helps your healthcare providers to visualize kidney-related blood vessels and see any abnormalities including narrowing or swelling. At the same time as diagnosis, your healthcare provider can use a catheter to remove blockages and restore healthy blood flow.
RENAL ANGIOGRAPHY WITH INTERVENTION
Renal angiography helps your healthcare providers to visualize kidney-related blood vessels and see any abnormalities including narrowing or swelling. At the same time as diagnosis, your healthcare provider can use a catheter to remove blockages and restore healthy blood flow.
SCLEROTHERAPY
Sclerotherapy is a commonly recommended treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. A brief injection (or quick series of injections) scars the inside of the varicose vein, causing it to close and normal blood flow to be rerouted to surrounding vessels. Patients wear compression stockings for several days or more after the procedure, and are generally able to resume normal activity including exercise within just a few days.
SUBCLAVIAN STEAL SYNDROME TREATMENT
If plaque builds up in the subclavian arteries (below the clavicle), patients pay experience dizziness, vertigo, arm pain, or arm tingling. Subclavian steal syndrome is actually a complex grouping of symptoms and does not currently have a complete treatment available; however, providers at Pinnacle Vein and Vascular Center can deliver a number of therapies that can reduce symptoms and the risk of other health complications including heart attack and stroke.
THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a grouping of disorders that shows symptoms which may include: -Painful arm, neck, or shoulder -Numb or tingling fingers Symptoms are usually brought on because of pregnancy or injuries which may include: -Sports-related injury -Repetitive (on-the-job) injury -Motor vehicle accident Healthcare providers may recommend a number of treatment options, including pain management, physical therapy, and surgical repair.
THROMBECTOMY THROMBOSIS
In the case of a severe blood clot, doctors at Pinnacle Vein and Vascular Center may recommend and provide: -Thrombectomy, to surgically remove the clot -Thrombolysis, a “clot busting” treatment to dissolve the blockage –Uterine Fibroid Embolization -Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure for fibroid tumors of the uterus. The procedure is also referred to as Uterine Artery Embolization. Fibroid tumors arise from the muscular wall of the uterus. This causes heavy menstrual bleeding, pain in the pelvis region and pressure on the bladder or bowel. Pinnacle Vein and Vascular Center will use a fluoroscope to guide the delivery of small particles to the uterus and fibroids. The small particles are injected through a catheter. These then block the arteries that provide blood flow, causing the fibroids to shrink. Varicocele: -Varicocele is an enlargement of the veins within the scrotum. This occurs in about one in six males but unlike varicose veins in the legs, it is more common in younger males, ages 15-25. Varicoceles are believed to be caused by defective valves in the veins within the scrotum, just above the testicles. These valves regulate the flow of blood to and from the testicles. When normal flow doesn’t occur, the blood backs up, causing the veins to enlarge. This most commonly takes place during puberty, when the testicles are experiencing rapid growth and need the most blood. Treatment is necessary only for infertility or if the varicocele causes persistent pain or discomfort or significant testicular atrophy. Surgical treatment of the varicocele usually involves tying off the affected vein to redirect the blood flow toward normal veins. Surgery can be open or laparoscopic, and is done on an outpatient basis.
VEIN LIGATION
Vein ligation is an extremely effective outpatient surgery that may be recommended for patients with: -Leaky veins that pool blood in the limb -Tired, achy, swollen legs -Open sores on their legs -The desire for cosmetic improvement of varicose veins The procedure ties off the damaged vein and either removes it or reroutes blood flow through surrounding veins with proper function.
VENOGRAPHY
Venography is an imaging test that uses x-ray contrast dye to reveal: -Blockages -Blood clots -DVT (deep vein thrombosis) -Vascular disorders -Vein function Venography can also help a healthcare provider to identify the origin point of a clot that has broken free and traveled to the heart or lung.
