Ultrasound is a non-invasive, painless, safe, quick process to identify the tell-tale bulging of the aorta. While most people believe that AAAs occur only in men, recent research published in the Journal of Vascular...Read More

    Why should I be screened for osteoporosis?

    Osteoporosis is painless in early stages and most people are completely unaware of the condition until a fracture occurs. That’s why we offer simple, low-cost screenings to help you identify a problem as early as possible.  Once you have screenings, your doctor can use the results to determine next...Read More

    When do I need surgery for an aneurysm?

    Once an aneurysm reaches 5 to 6 cm in diameter, the risk of rupture is very high. If rupture occurs, there is approximately an 80 to 95% chance of death. Therefore, the majority of vascular surgeons would agree that a 5 to 6 cm aneurysm should be repaired immediately, unless other medical factors...Read More

    Can I have ankle-brachial index screening if I have had a mastectomy?

    Yes. We take the pressure in the other arm and use that to formulate a ratio. We do this because when a patient has had surgery for breast cancer, usually lymph nodes under the arm are removed as well. Compression of the lymph system of the arm can lead to painful swelling for a long time.

    If you’ve...Read More

    What do the results of a heel density test for osteoporosis mean?

    If your results fall in the categories of mild/moderate risk or high risk for bone diminishment, this does not absolutely mean that you have bone loss, although it is a possibility. Osteoporosis is a complex disorder, and no single risk factor should be used for diagnosis. Your physician will use...Read More

    How is peripheral artery disease (PAD) diagnosed?

    Most people do not know they have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), particularly in the early stages. PAD is often silent. This is a problem because having PAD is a marker for heart attack and stroke. If you have fatty plaque buildup in the small arteries of your legs, it is likely you have this same...Read More
