Vascular

At Becker Medical Group, our Vascular Medicine department is committed to delivering comprehensive care for patients with vascular disorders, encompassing the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions affecting the blood vessels throughout the body.

Vascular Overview

Led by a team of expert vascular specialists, our goal is to provide personalized care tailored to each patient's unique needs. Here's a detailed description of the services and procedures we offer:

Vascular Consultations

Our vascular specialists conduct thorough consultations to assess patients experiencing symptoms related to vascular disease, such as leg pain, swelling, skin changes, non-healing wounds, varicose veins, and other circulatory issues. During these consultations, a detailed medical history is obtained, followed by a comprehensive physical examination and vascular assessment.

Diagnostic Testing and Imaging

We utilize advanced diagnostic tests and imaging studies to evaluate vascular health and diagnose vascular conditions. This may include non-invasive vascular studies such as Doppler ultrasound, duplex ultrasound, ankle-brachial index (ABI) testing, and arterial and venous imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and computed tomography angiography (CTA).


Vascular Surgery

For patients requiring surgical intervention for complex vascular conditions, our vascular specialists collaborate with vascular surgeons to provide comprehensive surgical care, including open vascular surgery, bypass grafting, endarterectomy, and vascular reconstruction procedures.

Wound Care and Limb Salvage:

Our vascular specialists work closely with wound care specialists, podiatrists, and other healthcare professionals to manage non-healing wounds and prevent limb loss in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or diabetic foot ulcers. We employ a multidisciplinary approach to wound care, utilizing advanced techniques and technologies to promote wound healing and prevent complications.

Vascular Risk Factor Modification

In addition to treating vascular conditions, our vascular specialists focus on addressing modifiable risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, smoking, and obesity to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events and improve overall vascular health. We provide lifestyle counseling, dietary guidance, smoking cessation programs, and medication management to help patients achieve optimal vascular wellness.


Treatment and Management of Vascular Conditions

Our vascular specialist Dr. David Fox develops individualized treatment plans based on the specific diagnosis, severity of symptoms, and patient preferences. Treatment options may include medical management, minimally invasive procedures, endovascular interventions, and surgical interventions at our full-service New York City facility. Our patients can go to a comprehensive surgical center in the heart of Manhattan and not go to a hospital to take care of all their vascular needs.  We specialize in managing a wide range of vascular conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)

  • Atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease

  • Carotid artery disease and stroke prevention

  • Varicose veins and venous insufficiency

  • Aortic aneurysms and dissections

  • Renal artery stenosis

  • Vascular access for dialysis and chemotherapy

Minimally Invasive Vascular Procedures

Our vascular specialists are skilled in performing a variety of minimally invasive procedures to treat vascular conditions with precision and minimal risk. The diagnosis and consultation would be provided on site, and the subsequent treatment for minimally invasive procedures would occur at our referred Vascular Surgeon specialist, Fox Vein Care in the New York City. These procedures may include:

  • Angioplasty and stenting to restore blood flow in blocked or narrowed arteries

  • Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for aortic aneurysms

  • Thrombolysis and thrombectomy for the treatment of blood clots

  • Venous ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins and venous insufficiency

  • Embolization for the treatment of vascular malformations and tumors
