His deeply specialized knowledge affords Dr. Sharma the ability to offer patients a quicker, less traumatic recovery and outcomes that significantly enhance quality of life.

The Benefits of Venous Intervention

Venous intervention can enhance a patient’s overall quality of life or even be lifesaving in some cases. This treatment is designed to address diseased veins before any serious complications occur; this helps prevent the need for surgery. Patients also benefit from the fact that this is a procedure that is hardly invasive at all, meaning no or minimal distress or discomfort.

What is Venous Intervention?

Venous intervention is a procedure that involves placing a needle into a vein to gain access to the body’s labyrinth of blood vessels. Then some form of catheter or wire is used to access and treat the target problem areas.

Who Needs Venous Intervention?

A patient is a good candidate for venous intervention when they have any kind of condition that affects the veins. Some examples include:

  • Blockage in an artery or vein
  • Varicose veins
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – This is a blood clot in a deep vein. A deep vein is any vein that is not considered superficial.
  • Life-threatening pulmonary embolism – This is a blood clot that has migrated from the legs to the lungs. Venous intervention can be conducted as a preventative measure when a patient is determined to be at risk of a pulmonary embolism.

What to Expect from a Venous Intervention

Before:

There will be a consultation wherein all aspects of the patient’s case and ultimate health goals are discussed. The patient will also undergo preliminary diagnostic imaging that will aid Dr. Sharma in isolating the veins that require interventional attention.

During:

A local anesthetic or light sedation is administered to the patient. Some form of medical instrument, like a catheter or a wire, will be guided through whichever veins are presenting with issues that need correcting, and those issues will be treated and resolved. 

After:

After venous intervention, the patient’s venous system is structurally and functionally restored and, if the patient was experiencing any symptoms pre-intervention, then the symptoms should be noticeably reduced or totally resolved post-intervention.
