Varicose Veins

Although recent years have brought about a greater awareness of the importance of diagnosing and treating peripheral arterial disease, pathology of the venous system has received little attention.

LDL Apheresis

Cholesterol is a soft and waxy substance that exists in every cell in our bodies. There are two types of cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) which is considered “good cholesterol” and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) also known as “bad cholesterol.”  If we get too much cholesterol, large deposits of LDL collect in our arteries which increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart disease. This is when doctors will advise that a change is made to diet, exercise or medication.

Cardiac CT Scan

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) is an X-ray-based scan principally designed to show the inside of the heart arteries “noninvasively” – without having to put any equipment deep into the body.  Use of cardiac CT for patient care became mainstream in 2005 after several advances made the scan much easier to perform and boosted scan accuracy.  Technology of cardiac CT has improved year-to-year ever since, and more and more doctors are using it to help diagnose heart disease.
