Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a dangerous condition that occurs when a large vein develops a blockage (or a clot.) These tend to occur deep within the leg. These clots can be large enough to cause major damage to the lung(s) if they break off and travel to the heart. Although proper prevention is the best treatment, the vein doctors at the Vein Institute are also highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment options for this condition. They are, in fact, the leaders in the region for treatment of major DVT, especially when the condition requires a procedure to remove or dissolve the clot.
