What Is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?
When a blood clot forms in the lower leg or calf, this is called deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. When DVT occurs, you may experience pain, swelling, or no symptoms whatsoever. DVT can cause clots to break loose and spread throughout the body and even to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism. Because DVT can be “silent” and you may have no symptoms, it is crucial to be checked regularly if you meet the criteria for developing DVT.
Who Develops Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?
The risk factors for developing DVT are listed below. The more risk factors you identify with, the more likely you may have or develop DVT. The risk factors include:
- Regular periods of prolonged sitting (at work or during travel)
- Over 40 years of age
- Presence of varicose veins
- Injury, trauma, or previous orthopedic surgery
- High estrogen levels, typically through pregnancy or birth control
- Previous history of DVT
If you identify strongly with one or more of the symptoms above, it may be time to schedule a diagnostic test for DVT.
How Do I Know If I Have DVT?
Since DVT often occurs without symptoms, a medical professional must diagnose it. Our board-certified radiologists offer a diagnostic test using our state-of-the-art ultrasound technology. This is a fast and easy appointment. If DVT is present, our specialists may recommend a personalized treatment plan to include your family physician and/or follow-up tests for maximum safety.

Very nice place to be treated for varicose veins and other personal enhancement issues. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I have just started going here, but it seems like I will be happy I picked Vein and Body!
I had the Opus Laser treatment done, around my eyes, by Jasmine. I personally didnt have ANY pain. I don't have any redness and my eyes feel cool and "energized!!" I go back in 3 weeks. Staff is super friendly and down to earth. 10/10 recommend!
