After completing patient registration forms in our office, you will have a thorough History & Physical (H&P) with one of our caring, expert physicians. They will determine an initial treatment plan and decide if additional vascular testing is required.
Our physicians may decide that non-invasive vascular testing is required. Our laboratory is conveniently located in our office and we strive to complete this evaluation during your visit. The tests are painless and take approximately 40 minutes.
We are pioneers in office-based, vascular surgical procedures using special minimally invasive catheters. In addition to office-based treatments, our board certified surgeons routinely perform the full complement of vascular operations.
UVA has pioneered RESTORE, a new office based, same-day procedure to increase blood flow to the lower extremities and improve quality of life. For individuals who suffer with leg pain, make an appointment with one of our physicians today to determine if you are a candidate for RESTORE.
