It’s often not hard to tell when you’re suffering from deep venous thrombosis. Symptoms are often very evident, and include swollen legs, pain, warmth, tenderness and even difficulty ambulating. While these symptoms can certainly have a negative impact on one’s life, complications can be far more serious, and even life-threatening, including leading to post-phlebitic syndrome and pulmonary embolism.

Fortunately, Dr. Farshad Malekmehr at the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis is capable of providing very effective diagnosis and DVT treatment for those suffering from the malady. Dr. Malekmehr is a board-certified cardiovascular surgeon with a special interest in treating complications like pulmonary embolism. For example, mechanical thrombectomy for DVT is a revolutionary and highly effective procedure that removes blood clots form the deep veins, and one of the most highly beneficial methods for avoiding pulmonary embolism and postphlebitic syndrome.

Thrombolysis for DVT treatment is another method for decreasing the chance of clot propagation and fatal pulmonary embolism that works by preserving the valves in the veins. Dr. Malekmehr is also fully capable of performing anticoagulation – often considered the standard DVT and blood clot treatment. Anticoagulation prevents clots from propagation and decreasing the chance of pulmonary embolism by lessening the chance of clot propagation.

Whether you’re suffering from DVT, or you’re simply looking to avoid the causes and risk factors of the malady with Dr. Malekmehr. You can always count on the surgeon and his team at the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis to provide the ideal care for you.
