Cardiology Treatments offered by Treasure Coast Heart and Vascular in Port St. Lucie, FL.

The number of specialists offering specific services is growing as the world becomes more and more complex. Doctors are now specializing in particular areas of health, such as cardiology, and this is reflected in the range of services they offer.

The cardiologist is a specialist in treating heart and circulatory problems, including heart attacks, strokes, heart disease, and the like. They are also involved in the diagnosis and treatment of other health problems affecting the circulatory system.

Here is a list of the treatments for heart problems offered at Treasure Coast Heart and Vascular, and the procedures that are offered at the clinic:

 

Varicose Vein Treatments

 

Varicose veins are visible near the skin’s surface as swollen, distorted, rope-like veins.

They form because, in forward flowing veins, small one-way valves allow blood to flow but not backwards. When these valves go bad, there will be increased pressure in the veins, which results in them bulging.

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) is the technique that enables us  to easily cut varicose veins without “vein stripping” in place. There is no rest required. We want patients to be able to get up and walk after this vein treatment as soon as possible.

 

Peripheral Arterial Disease Treatment

 

PAD is a circulation disease that impedes blood flow to your limbs (usually your legs or arm).

Often indicative of atherosclerosis or an accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (called Atherosclerosis). In rarer cases, your legs as well as your brain may be suffering from this arterial problem, which can produce a heart attack or a stroke. Plaque buildup is the most common cause of cardiovascular disease.

When you’s extremities grow, they get starved for blood. Therefore, many people suffer from painful legs while walking or while ascending stairs (claudication). Since patients with PAD are at risk of heart attack and stroke, the American Heart Association (AHA) advises getting an early diagnosis and early care.

Over the age of 60 suffer from peripheral artery disease. Many patients with PAD don’t even know they have it. Are you a one of them?

 

Wound Care

 

About 70% of the people who visit Wound Centers are trying to treat their circulatory issues as well. It could be on the arterial or the venous side. In the majority of wound care facilities, circulatory issues are only found if long term treatments such as tissue changes and skin grafts have failed. In order to treat non-healing leg wounds, a Vein or Vascular surgeon must perform an evaluation.

If you’re over the age of 50, having your legs tested by a vascular doctor is even more important. This assessment must be performed at the beginning of wound treatment, and other treatment modalities should be avoided until after.

 

Smoke Cessation

 

The leading cause of cardiovascular disease is smoking. Additionally, smoking is responsible for one-third of all US cancer deaths. Since it constricts blood vessels, smoking causes erectile dysfunction and infertility.

People who smoke, no matter their age, will benefit greatly from stopping. It’s a hard habit to break, both physically and mentally. Cigarette smoking is considered to be the major preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.

If anyone becomes a habitual, it becomes difficult to leave. Many people have tried to quit many times before succeeding. Many different approaches may be required to assist someone who wants to quit smoking.

 

Conclusion
