Our team of interventional radiologists, and venous specialists, at MIPS Center is committed to providing excellent care for individuals suffering from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) management. Our state-of-the-art center is in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and we use the latest technology to create personalized treatment plans.
We understand that DVT is a complex condition that requires a tailored approach, so we work closely with your primary Care Physician (PCP) and referring physician. Together, we carefully review your medical history and current health status to decide the most effective treatment path, which may include anticoagulation medication, thrombectomy, or thrombolysis. We foster a collaborative environment so that all parties are well-informed and agree with the chosen treatment strategy, ensuring that you receive comprehensive care that is tailored to your unique situation.
Understanding Deep Vein Thrombosis
DVT is a medical condition characterized by blood clots forming in deep veins, often in the legs. Not promptly and effectively managed can lead to significant health complications.
Recognizing Symptoms and Emphasizing Prevention
DVT can sometimes be silent, but common symptoms include leg swelling, skin discoloration, visible surface veins, and fatigue.
Personalized DVT Treatment at MIPS
DVT can be treated with blood thinners or catheter-directed thrombolysis.
- Medication: The primary treatment is blood thinners like heparin and warfarin (Coumadin). These help blood flow around the clot and stop it from moving to the lungs, read more.
- IVC Filter: If blood thinners aren’t a good choice, a small filter can be put in the central vein to the heart (the inferior vena cava, or IVC), read more.
- DVT Thrombolysis: A small tube (catheter) is put into the leg, and medication or tools are used to break up or remove the clot, read more.
