Deep Vein Problems
While some vein problems like spider veins and varicose veins are easily visible on the skin’s surface, other vein problems occur deep within the body’s tissues, especially in your limbs and extremities. In fact, subsurface or “deep” varicose veins can even be the root cause behind visible varicose veins, spider veins, and reticular veins.
Some deep veins are perforator veins that pass through muscle tissue, which helps push blood upwards against the force of gravity. These are important for circulation and their failure can cause severe pain and discomfort. Other deep veins are critical, life-sustaining blood vessels whose function is absolutely necessary. Therefore, weakened valves or walls of all deep veins represent a serious medical issue that the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center takes very seriously.
Treatment For Deep Vein Problems
Because deep or subsurface veins cannot be seen from the outside, the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center uses the latest in medical imaging technology to pinpoint the location of dysfunctional veins and target the vein treatment procedure. In his twenty-year career as a cardiologist,Dr. Pedulla has developed minimally invasive techniques using the extreme accuracy of imaging technology, which he continues to use at the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center.
Some deep vein problems can be extremely serious, leading to potentially life-threatening conditions such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Others may cause varicose veins and other painful conditions. Depending on the severity and location of a deep vein problem, Dr. Pedulla may select one of several vein treatment procedures, including sclerotherapy and Endovascular Laser Treatment (EVLT®). All of the procedures that Dr. Pedulla performs are as minimally invasive as possible, using precisely targeted, tiny incisions to minimize scarring and potential complications.
Dr. Pedulla has dedicated his career to minimally invasive vein treatment procedures using advanced imaging technology because of his long-standing commitment to patient care and comfort. The Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center sets a very high standard of attentive, personalized care in order to provide you with the most positive and painless vein treatment experience possible.
