The Vein Center
Recent advancements and improved technology in the treatment of vein disease have led to new options for patients bothered by venous issues. These significant developments have led to treatments that are safe, effective and minimally invasive. Additionally, with today’s favorable insurance coverage for most procedures, treatment is more obtainable.
Our Vein Center has expertise in treating issues like spider veins, varicose veins, pelvic vein congestion, venous ulcers and more.
USA Vascular Center surgeons are board certified in both general and vascular surgery and provide comprehensive care for patients with vascular disease. This involves the detection and diagnosis of vascular disease by non-invasive ultrasound and arteriography, with correction by open surgical reconstruction or use of the latest minimally invasive endovascular techniques.
At present, 60–70 percent of patients can receive a minimally invasive endovascular option for the care of their arterial or venous disorder at USA Vascular. Often, this allows same day surgery or early discharge, minimal pain and fast recovery.
The Vascular Center at USA is also heavily involved in ongoing externally funded vascular research in the form of clinical research studies. Device manufacturers often fund studies for surgical research to find out more about such procedures as abdominal aortic aneurysm endovascular repair or the use of lasers in occlusive disease.
All University Surgical Associates (USA) vascular surgeons are board certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS) in both general and vascular surgery and provide comprehensive care for patients with vascular disease. This involves the detection and diagnosis of vascular disease by noninvasive ultrasound and arteriography, with correction by open surgical reconstruction or using the latest minimally invasive endovascular techniques.
