Venous Disease

Skin cancer can affect anyone, regardless of skin color. Skin cancer in patients with skin of color is often diagnosed in its later stages, when it’s more difficult to treat.

Our clinic has extensive experience in treating varicose vein disease, from the most complicated cases to the cosmetic conditions. In our clinic, we use multiple treatment modalities described in the text below to achieve the best results. Our physicians are affiliated with multiple hospitals and accept most insurance plans.

Geniculate Artery Embolization (GAE)

Genicular artery embolization (GAE), or embolization of the knee, is a novel minimally-invasive procedure providing immediate and long term pain relief for patients with osteoarthritis (OA)

It is performed by an Interventional Radiologist (IR), who is a specialist physician that uses X-rays and other imaging modalities to see in the body and treat diseases without surgery.

Uterine Artery Embolization

Uterine artery embolization (UAE), or uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), is a minimally invasive procedure. It successfully decreases and eliminates bleeding, pressure and pain in women with uterine fibroids or adenomyosis — a condition often mistaken for fibroids.

An interventional radiologist (IR) performs fibroid embolization. These doctors have specialized experience with blood vessel imaging for diagnosing and treating certain health conditions.

May-Thurner Syndrome Evaluation And Management

Also known as Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome, May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is caused when the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery, which increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the left extremity. 

Outcomes of treatments for MTS are generally very good. Most patients, if identified shortly after the DVT has formed, can be adequately treated with complete resolution of their symptoms.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Find answers to common inquiries and learn more about what you can expect from your experience at Unified Health.

What types of vascular conditions do you treat?

We treat a wide range of vascular conditions, including varicose veins, venous disease, May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS), and provide specialized procedures like Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) for osteoarthritis and Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) for uterine fibroids and adenomyosis.

What is Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) and how can it help with osteoarthritis?

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a minimally-invasive procedure that provides immediate and long-term pain relief for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. By reducing blood flow to the inflamed areas, GAE helps alleviate pain and improve mobility without the need for surgery.

How does Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) work for treating fibroids?

Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) is a minimally-invasive procedure that blocks the blood flow to uterine fibroids or adenomyosis, causing them to shrink and die. This results in decreased bleeding, pressure, and pain, significantly improving the quality of life for affected women.

What are the signs and symptoms of May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS)?

May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS) often presents with symptoms such as swelling, pain, and tenderness in the left leg due to compression of the left iliac vein by the right iliac artery, which increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). If you experience these symptoms, it’s important to seek medical evaluation.

Are the procedures performed by qualified specialists?

Yes, all procedures at Unified Health are performed by experienced and highly qualified interventional radiologists and vascular specialists. Our team uses advanced imaging techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise and effective treatments.
