About the Vein & Vascular Center

The Vein & Vascular Center uses an integrated care model to provide patients relief from vascular conditions. Our patients have access to not only vascular specialists, but wound care specialists and cardiologists too. And we provide care from the initial appointment, to diagnostic testing, to treatment and procedures.

This whole-person, full service approach allows us to not only treat your vascular condition, but any underlying or secondary conditions too.

Nowhere else in Bakersfield will you find this integrated approach to care.

The Vein & Vascular Center offers the most advanced diagnostics and treatments to relieve pain and heaviness, preserve mobility, and prevent amputation.

Our highly-trained, well-credentialed doctors are passionate about raising the bar in patient care. They attend conferences, diligently study best practices, and stay abreast of all of the latest technologies in heart, vascular, and wound care – all so they can offer world-class care right here in Bakersfield.

Our team is dedicated to:

  1. Making Kern County amputation-free. (No other facility makes this its fundamental mission.)
  2. Providing personalized, integrative care for those suffering from vascular and vein problems.
  3. Helping our patients “Walk Stronger, Live Longer.”
By age 50, approximately 40% of women and 20% of men already have significant leg problems.

Treatment for All Vein and Vascular Conditions

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening: We conduct an ultrasound to identify an AAA, which is a blood-filled bulging of the abdominal aorta.

Venous Consults: We utilize our advanced medical technology to diagnose vascular disease at early stages when treatment may be more effective.

Diagnostic Tests: Our diagnostic screenings may include angiography, intravascular ultrasounds, CO2 angiography, and more.

Endovascular Treatment: We use stents, angioplasty, laser atherectomy, thrombectomy, or by-pass surgery to treat narrow arteries and restore blood flow to the legs.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

Some of the conditions and symptoms we treat include:

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): A progressive condition that, when left untreated, can reduce mobility and increase risk of amputation.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI): A condition caused by faulty valves that allow blood to pool in the leg veins, which can result in painful symptoms.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers & Foot Pain: An estimated 24% of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer will require amputation. Don’t be one of them.

Varicose Veins: Caused by in effective valves in veins, these bulging veins are a sign of venous insufficiency. The condition is more common in women and worsens with age.

Critical Limb Ischemia: A condition caused by an obstruction in the arteries which reduces blood flow and causes severe pain and ulcers.

Leg and Foot Swelling: Known as “edema,” leg and/or foot swelling can be cause by numerous factors, including venous insufficiency.

 

Do you have one or more of these symptoms? If so, it could be a sign of PAD or CVI.
