Vascular Lab

Located on-site at KCVI, our lab provides non-invasive imaging and physiological evaluations of the vascular system, and can accommodate most same-day testing needs. Utilizing ultrasound, we offer detailed assessments of arteries and veins, essential for understanding and treating vascular health with real-time blood flow analysis. Our clinic features advanced vascular testing conducted by a registered ultrasonographer.

All studies are overseen and read by Dr. Juan Carlos Correa, our board certified vascular surgeon. He has the added qualification as a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

We are committed to providing quality care:

Unlike alternate centers that may address only cosmetic concerns or early vein problems, at KCVI we are experts in the full range of treatment for medical purposes. Our treatment is focused on patients having symptoms including leg fatigue, feeling of leg heaviness, leg swelling, bleeding varicose veins and wounds (ulcers).

Contact Kansas City Vascular Institute if you need treatment for any of the following:

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral Arterial Disease, commonly known as PAD, is a circulatory condition where narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs. PAD often leads to symptoms like leg pain during walking or climbing stairs. Treating PAD is crucial for preventing serious complications such as leg pain, especially when walking (claudication) and, in severe cases, limb loss. PAD often causes leg pain when walking, a condition known as claudication. This disease is typically a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis).

May Thurner Syndrome

May Thurner Syndrome (MTS) is a rarely diagnosed condition that occurs when the right iliac artery compresses the left iliac vein, leading to increased venous pressure and potentially causing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the left leg. Symptoms may include leg pain, swelling, and deep vein thrombosis. MTS is often underrecognized but can be effectively treated with interventions such as stenting to open the compressed vein and anticoagulation therapy to prevent clot formation. Early detection and treatment of MTS are crucial to prevent serious complications and improve patient outcomes.

Painful Varicose Veins

Painful varicose veins are not only a cosmetic concern but also a significant health issue that can lead to discomfort, swelling, and aching pain. These enlarged, twisted veins most commonly appear in the legs and feet due to standing or walking upright, which increases the pressure in the veins of the lower body. The discomfort from varicose veins can significantly impact quality of life, prompting those affected to seek treatment. Addressing painful varicose veins can relieve symptoms, improve appearance, and prevent further vascular complications.

Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency is a condition where the veins have problems sending blood from the limbs back to the heart. This issue can lead to symptoms such as swelling, varicose veins, skin changes, and leg ulcers. Venous insufficiency is often caused by weakened or damaged vein valves that fail to maintain the direction of blood flow. Treatment focuses on improving blood flow through the veins. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to manage symptoms effectively and prevent progression to more serious complications.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) is a chronic condition that affects women and is characterized by pelvic vein varicosities that lead to persistent pelvic pain. This pain is often exacerbated by standing, sexual intercourse, or menstrual periods. PCS is thought to be caused by venous insufficiency in the pelvic veins, similar to varicose veins in the legs. Addressing PCS is vital for improving the quality of life for those affected by this often underdiagnosed condition.
