Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a silent disease that affects over 12 million Americans, and its symptoms may include poor lower limb circulation, numbness, resting leg pain, skin discoloration, and sores that won’t heal. Modern Vascular of Fairfax, Virginia is working tirelessly to reduce the effects of PAD.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is what happens when the cartilage that is between the bones breaks down and causes joint pain. It is usually caused by wear-and-tear and can cause joints to swell up and have difficulty moving. Another name for osteoarthritis is degenerative joint disease (DJD). Modern Vascular of Fairfax now offers a procedure that can help provide knee pain relief for patients that have OA or DJD called Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE).
Uterine fibroids are tumors that grow on the uterus walls that are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue. They can vary in size, ranging from tiny to as large as a softball. They often present in women that are in their childbearing years, usually between the ages of 30 – 60. Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat uterine fibroids and prevent new fibroid growth. That procedure is now being offered at this clinic.
