Vein and Vascular Disorders Are Treated Using State-of-the-Art, Minimally Invasive Techniques At Our Outpatient Procedural Suite
At Milford Vascular Institute, our board certified vascular surgeon Dr. Esposito and board certified interventional radiologist Dr. Davis provide minimally invasive outpatient procedures to treat vein and vascular disorders.
Our vascular clinic is unique in that we have an on-site office-based laboratory, which allows us to treat many vein and vascular diseases without open surgery, eliminating the need for a hospital setting or overnight stay.
Using the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge endovascular techniques our surgeons can unblock arteries, open up compressed veins, and dissolve blood clots to help restore healthy blood circulation through the arms and legs, and to the body’s organs.
At MVI’s outpatient procedural suite, we provide minimally invasive treatments for vein and vascular disorders, such as:
These procedures allow patients come in in the morning, have light sedation throughout their procedure, and go home in the early afternoon, without any downtime.
Procedures usually require a tiny puncture, through which our vascular surgeons can access the blood vessels. They do not require any stitches or sutures. Recovery is quick and easy, and patients can resume normal activities with a day or two.

PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD) TREATMENT
RESTORING BLOOD FLOW TO THE LEG WHERE THERE WAS COMPLETE ARTERY BLOCKAGE
This patient suffers from Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), a vascular disorder in which the arteries in the legs become blocked due to plaque buildup.
Blocked leg arteries restrict blood flow from the heart to the legs, causing patients to experience leg pain while walking that is relieved with rest.
Dr. Davis and Dr. Esposito were able to access her leg artery through a tiny puncture in the groin. Using techniques such as atherectomy, balloon angioplasty and stenting, they were able to unblock the artery and restore healthy blood supply to the leg.
The patient will feel immediate relief of her symptoms and enjoy a better quality of life.
MAY-THURNER SYNDROME TREATMENT
USING INTRAVASCULAR ULTRASOUND TO OPEN A COMPRESSED ILIAC VEIN
This patient was suffering from leg swelling in her left leg.
This is a common symptom of May-Thurner Syndrome, a condition in which the right iliac artery presses against the left iliac vein. The iliac vein is sandwiched between the iliac artery and the spine.
When the left iliac vein is compressed in this manner, blood flow leaving the leg and traveling up to the heart is restricted.
This causes blood to accumulate in the left leg resulting in leg swelling, the development of varicose veins, damage to the vein valves, and the potential development of deadly blood clots.
In our outpatient procedural suite, Dr. Davis and Dr. Esposito use IVUS intravascular ultrasound to precisely diagnose May-Thurner Syndrome. Employing minimally invasive methods such as balloon angioplasty and stenting, the vein can be opened back up to allow healthy blood flow to resume through the leg.
