A Healthier Path to Leg and Vein Care
Our ultrasound vein consultation has a dual use in the diagnostic process. The first step is to ensure there is no active blood clot in your lower extremity veins.
Once a blood clot is ruled out, we start a thorough ultrasound investigation looking for "venous reflux" in various parts of your vascular system. After your first appointment with your specialist, you'll visit our Accredited Venous Testing Facility to speak with one of our Registered Vascular Technicians. Schedule your initial appointment today for a healthier leg and vein health path tomorrow.
Our non-invasive duplex study, often known as a vascular ultrasound, lets your provider view the circulation in your arms, neck, and legs. Using high-frequency sound waves, the ultrasound creates a detailed image of the soft tissue and blood vessels. Once a blood clot is ruled out, we start a thorough ultrasound investigation looking for "venous reflux" in various parts of your vascular system.
Reflux is the free falling of blood down your venous system towards the feet. Reflux results in the blood beginning to pool in the veins of your lower extremities and is the primary cause of symptoms associated with venous disease. Following your ultrasound study, the results are then analyzed and interpreted by our midlevel provider and physician.
After you have completed your venous reflux study, your mid-level provider and physician will review the results of your venous testing study. Should your study produce a positive testing result, our providers will assemble a vein treatment plan that is tailored specifically to your needs and anatomy.

Venous disease is a progressive disease, meaning if you are positive for venous disease or varicose veins then your condition and symptoms will only worsen as you age. In addition, leaving this condition untreated can also lead to more advanced diseases, including leg ulcers and the potential for blood clots.
In addition to the initial ultrasound vein examination, we conduct post-operative venous ultrasound-guided follow-up examinations. Typically, these examinations take place one week post-operatively to confirm occlusion of the vessel being treated during surgery and to verify that there is an absence of any blood clot. Following the post-operative studies after surgery, we recommend that patients return to our office three months post-operatively and then return once annually.
