Providing Venous Treatments, Injection Therapy, and More
Venous disease is a common occurrence. The long-term effects can have serious consequences if not treated properly. Advancements in medical technology have made older, formerly extensive, surgically invasive venous surgery done in the hospital a rare occurrence. Present day office-based technology allows most venous treatments to be done in a less invasive fashion with faster recovery. Many of the venous procedures we offer are performed in less than an hour with little or no discomfort. Most patients return directly to work.
As always, the Heartcare Center physician (William D. Salerno, M.D.) provides the therapeutic treatments, not an assistant, technician, or nurse (in many other well-known facilities the physician does not provide the treatment). Dr. Salerno has traveled and trained in vascular and aesthetic centers across the United States to create what he feels is the best approach for his patients. He is one of the first 250 physicians in the United States to be certified by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
In addition, we are constantly continuing to learn new techniques and accruing the latest knowledge through memberships and/or participation in educational activities from organizations such as:
- The American College of Phlebology
- The American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery
- The American College of Cosmetic Surgery
- The International Society of Endovascular Specialists
- The International Society of Cosmetic Laser Surgeons
- The Society for Vascular Ultrasound
