Vascular & Vein Services
Austin Vascular & Vein Specialists is a medical practice in Austin, TX dedicated exclusively to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the artery and veins, i.e. the circulatory system. Our Vascular Specialist is Board-Certified by the American Board of Vascular Surgery and is fellowship trained in the newest Endovascular and Vascular Procedures. He is very experienced in the latest minimally-invasive and catheter-based interventions and is also exceptional at performing traditional open vascular surgery, such as artery bypass, endarterectomy, and open aneurysm repair.
We provide a wide spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic options for our patients with vascular & vein diseases (i.e. diseases of the blood vessels). We provide state-of-the-art care by utilizing the latest technologies, including the use of laser, stents, angioplasty balloons, atherectomy devices, catheters, and laparoscopy.
We are experts in minimally-invasive endovascular therapies. Endovascular procedures provide a minimally-invasive approach to the treatment of many vascular problems. Endovascular procedures are performed with the use of catheters placed into the arteries or veins of the body through a small needle puncture in the skin (usually in the groin). These methods minimizes pain, scarring, and recovery time associated with interventional procedures. Endovascular techniques are applicable for the treatment of the majority of patients with cardiovascular, vascular, and vein conditions.
Some of the vascular conditions that we commonly treat include:
- Carotid artery narrowing/stenosis
(which leads to strokes and TIAs)
- Peripheral Artery Disease
(i.e. hardening of arteries in the legs)
- Blood Clots and DVT
(deep venous thrombosis)
- Varicose and Spider Veins
- Kidney Artery Blockages
- Vein access procedures such as infusaports for chemotherapy
- Kidney failure – Procedures for dialysis such as AV fistulas and grafts
- Leg pain or swelling secondary to circulation disorders
- Wounds or gangrene of the feet or legs
- Venous Stasis Ulcers
- Diabetic Ulcers
