“We are doing this clinic to bring more awareness to venous disease and other vascular conditions as a whole,” said Dr. Krikorian. “We see many people who come to our office with leg pain that they don’t realize it is a result of their veins and poor circulation. Vein screenings are a simple and painless way to help prevent issues that could put your life at risk if left untreated.”
Vein and artery screenings can help detect conditions such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), atherosclerosis, carotid artery disease, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and varicose veins. It’s estimated that 15% of the United States population is affected by varicose veins, and millions of people each year also develop life-threatening conditions such as thrombophlebitis or DVT.
After receiving a diagnosis from a healthcare provider Dr. Krikorian said vascular disease can often be treated by medications, non-surgical procedures such as angioplasty, stenting, and vein ablation, or in some cases, lifestyle changes.
