Conditions We Treat

All treatments are performed in the office by Dr. Plaza-Ponte personally, using only local anesthetic.

Varicose Veins »
Varicose veins are swollen, dilated and tortuous veins – usually blue or dark purple – that usually occur in the legs. They may also be lumpy, ropy or twisted in appearance.

Spider Veins »
Spider veins are tiny varicose veins that may be blue or red in color. They do not protrude above the skin surface and frequently look like a spider.

Venous Leg Ulcers »
A leg ulcer is a long-lasting (chronic) sore on the leg or foot that takes more than 4-6 weeks to heal. Venous leg ulcers are estimated to affect around 1 in 500 people, or 1% of the adult population in the Western hemisphere, although they become much more common with age.

Phlebitis (SVT) »
Phlebitis (superficial thrombophlebitis or SVT) is inflammation of a vein just beneath the skin due to a blood clot. The condition is diagnosed by physical examination and confirmed by Duplex Ultrasound.

Blood Clots (DVT) »
Every year many thousands of people in the USA develop blood clots in a vein. It’s known as Venous Thrombosis. This is a serious, potentially fatal medical condition. Although serious, most clots can be completely avoided.

Pulmonary Embolism (PE) »
A pulmonary embolism is a blockage in the pulmonary artery, which is the blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs. This blockage, usually a blood clot, is potentially life threatening, as it can prevent blood from reaching the lungs.
