Majority of the peripheral vascular problems do not require interventions. In initial stages of the disease, management at our Columbus vein center through medications is an effective and viable treatment.
Within the last decade, open surgery for vascular disease has taken a back seat primarily because of minimally invasive imaging done under fluoroscopy. The technique where operator injects dye to see desired vessel is called Angiography.
For treatment of atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries), a small balloon is inserted into the artery in order to widen the blood vessel and restore blood flow.
This is procedure where the inside of the artery is modified to remove the narrowing. In some cases the obstructing plaque can be taken out of the body, dissolved or broken into microscopic debris that is not harmful to the body.
Stent is a metal scaffold that is inserted into the vessel to keep it from falling on itself and closing. The process of placing a stent inside the vessel is referred to as Stenting.
Painful and unsightly varicose veins can be removed or treated with sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and microphlebectomy.
Patients on hemodialysis may require temporary access; or the permanent access may need to be reopened if it cannot deliver the dialysis at optimal rate.

Patients with significant blood clot in their legs or people undergoing specific surgeries visit our Columbus vein center for placement of IVC filters.
