The Top Vascular Specialists in Texas
South Texas is fortunate to be home to Peripheral Vascular Associates (PVA), one of the largest vascular specialty physician group in the nation. We specialize in diagnosing and treating patients with vascular disease. Treating vascular disease is the ONLY thing we do, every day. Our team of physicians and staff are dedicated to providing personalized and comprehensive care to every patient which is why we are the leaders in vascular care.
Why a Vascular Specialist?
There are less than 3,000 Vascular Surgeons practicing in the United States today (less than 0.4% of all physicians). Vascular surgeons are the only doctors in The United States specially trained to treat vascular disease. Every Physician at PVA has completed a full 5-year general surgery residency followed by a fellowship totally dedicated to vascular surgery.
With over 20 physicians and dozens of convenient clinic locations located throughout South Texas, appointments can be scheduled with a minimal delay, often within 24 hours, when needed.
If a physician has diagnosed you with the following, you would best be treated by a trained vascular specialist:
Common vascular disease symptoms:
- Leg pain in calves or thighs, especially after certain activities such as walking or climbing stairs
- Leg numbness or weakness
- Coldness in your lower leg or foot
- Pain in the feet when resting at night
- Non-healing or poorly healing sores on toes, feet or legs
- A change in the color of your legs
- Shiny skin on your legs
- Hair loss or slower hair growth on legs
- Slower toenail growth
- No pulse or a weak pulse in your legs or feet
Vascular disease is serious and often underdiagnosed and undertreated. Many people believe that these symptoms are simply a sign of aging, not realizing that it may be a warning sign.
