How Can a Vein Specialist Help Treat Cardiovascular Conditions?

Cardiovascular conditions encompass all issues affecting blood circulation. They can affect people of all ages and from all walks of life.

At Missouri Vein Specialists, we are dedicated to providing high-quality care and the most cutting-edge methods available to treat circulation and cardiovascular issues of all kinds.

Developing an Accurate Diagnosis of a Vascular Condition

We use advanced diagnostic tests and techniques to evaluate the health of your cardiovascular system. Diagnostic testing is performed to identify and accurately assess the severity of any circulatory issues you may have, such as decreased blood flow or blocked blood vessels. If a circulation condition is left untreated, it can lead to more serious problems, such as a stroke, heart attack, or pulmonary embolism.

There are a vast number of circulatory problems that can occur – and while some conditions have well-known signs, many have no obvious symptoms at all. For example, carotid artery disease (CAD) often displays no symptoms but can lead to life-threatening complications, such as a stroke.

At Missouri Vein Specialists, our main goal is to prevent life-threatening situations. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of vascular tests, including ultrasound scanning, cerebrovascular, peripheral arterial, and venous evaluations.

Our vein specialist can find out immediately if you are at risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a circulatory condition in which narrowed arteries prevent adequate flow of oxygen-rich blood to the limbs.
