Treating Vascular Issues
DVVI uses the most up-to-date, effective procedures.
Are you feeling shortness of breath? Weakness or tingling on one side of your body? Unable to control the movement of a leg? Unable to speak clearly? Pain in your jaw, neck, upper back, or chest? Or perhaps discomfort in your legs when you walk? These are all potential symptoms of the serious vascular conditions listed below.
Dr. Sivia, Dr. Yu and Dr. Lee are the only full-time, board-certified vascular specialists in the Coachella Valley, dedicated exclusively to treating vascular conditions with non-invasive and minimally invasive solutions.
They begin by accurately diagnosing vascular problems through Doppler Duplex Ultrasound Imaging to determine the extent of your particular medical issue, revealing pictures of potential problems beneath your skin. Once our DVVI vascular surgeons have evaluated your individual needs, they can determine the best treatment option for you, which may include one or more of the following procedures:
- Carotid Artery Disease & Stroke Prevention – The most common cause of stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is from a blockage caused by plaque in the internal carotid artery on each side of your neck. When blood flow to the brain is decreased by plaque buildup in these two main arteries, you can experience a sudden loss of nourishment to brain tissue, which is a stroke. Read more.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) – When an artery weakens, it can sometimes bulge out and expand in any area of the body as an aneurysm. The most common site is in the abdominal aorta, the large artery that carries blood from the heart through the abdomen to the legs. This is commonly called AAA or Triple A. Read more.
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) – As you age, one or more of your artery linings may become irregular or plaque can build up. Both circumstances can block an artery. When this occurs in the arteries outside the heart or brain, especially the legs and arms, it’s referred to it as PAD. Read more.
- Fistula Dialysis – The failure of any organ can require dialysis. This is especially true of your kidneys which cleanse your body of waste products and regulate the amount of water and certain chemicals in your blood. Fistula dialysis is using an artery and a vein sewn together, which makes it ideal for hemodialysis access. Read more.
