Vascular disease can be diagnosed with the help of specific tests such as angiogram, duplex ultrasound, ankle-brachial index, and CT angiography.
Vascular procedures mostly focus on clearing blockage and promoting circulation. They also include procedures for wound healing and creation of an arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis.
We offer advanced minimally invasive treatment options for varicose veins including endovenous laser ablation, foam sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation.

Minimally invasive vascular surgery is a surgical technique that involves making small incisions to access and treat defective blood or lymphatic vessels. Through these small incisions, tiny cameras and special instruments are used to magnify and project images of the vessels onto a high-definition monitor so that the required repair can be precisely carried out.
Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for varicose veins in which laser energy is utilized to cauterize (burn) and close the abnormal veins.
