Vascular Disorders

Our blood and blood flow is what keep our bodies moving every day.  It carries oxygen and nutrients to our  cells  and tissue such  as  amino acids  and  glucose.  This system  of  pathways  is  what  our vascular system is  made up of  and vascular disease disorders are conditions that impact and affect your arteries and veins, harming your blood flow and which in turn harms other parts of your body.

Abnormalities that occur in the arteries, veins and blood vessels can happen for many reasons, such as underlying medical conditions, genetic abnormalities, structural issues with blood vessels and so on. Moreover, the risk of developing a vascular disorder is higher for patients with family history of vascular disorders, smoking, diet high in cholesterol and fats. It is important to note that strokes are one of the most common vascular diseases and will occur when blood flow to the brain is compromised because of a blockage in the arteries or broken blood vessels. This decrease in in blood flow means the brain is not receiving enough oxygen and can cause long-lasting effects that need to be treated immediately.

Types of Vascular Disorders

  • Vascular malformations
  • Aneurysm
  • Peripheral Artery Disease
  • Varicose and spider veins
  • Carotid Artery Disease
  • Mesenteric Artery Disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Renal artery disease

Signs and symptoms of such conditions depend on whether the disorder developed over a long period of time (chronic) or has something occurred suddenly to onset these symptoms? While there are many reasons that affect blood vessels and blood flow, common symptoms often include shortness of breath, numbness, cold intolerance, fatigue and some form of pain within the body. Here at our office, we will assess your symptoms. By performing a series of diagnostic tests to determine the root cause of the disease and work with you until we fully understand the cause and treatment, we will plan out for you. We aim to be at the forefront of advanced technologies to make sure we create an individualized plan that will benefit our patients suffering from these disorders.It is important to understand that many patients who suffer from vascular disorders can be straight forward and treatable, without major concerns. However, there are some cases that are more complex and concerning and in this case, we utilize a multi-team approach to treat those cases, specifically.
