We are Proud Residents of Peoria, Arizona
Peoria is a peaceful, family-friendly suburb located just outside of the Greater Phoenix area. Historical data states that our city was inhabited as early as the 1880’s by settlers who constructed large tents or adobe-style homes that have become a typical structure in hot desert terrain. The population of Peoria increased in the late 1800’s due to the active production at Vulture Mine, though it is said that less than 30 people called this city home at that time. By 1970, Peoria’s population had grown to 2,500. Today, we’ve got a thriving city of more than 150,000.
In 1906, the first city school, called Central School, was built. Today, that building houses the Peoria Museum.
Revered for being a safe community for people of all ages, Peoria offers excellent amenities and is particularly popular among avid golfers; those who live here and those who travel here for a fun golfing vacation. Being surrounded by state parks and vast mountains, our suburb also offers ample outdoor activities and gorgeous vistas for sunset-watching.
Our Main Services
Chronic venous insufficiency prevents the flow of blood upward through the lower extremities. Blood that circulates down into the feed and legs becomes trapped when valves that generally maintain forward-flow fail to work correctly. As a result, blood pools in part of the vein. Varicose veins represent one of the most common effects of chronic venous insufficiency. Their bulging, ropy appearance presents cosmetic concerns. Furthermore, varicose veins swell and can cause persistent pain.
Varicose vein treatments are commonly performed in our office near Sun City, AZ. Treatment may include sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation that closes veins, and microsurgery to remove veins that do not respond to more conservative approaches.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Peripheral arterial disease often affects the legs but may also develop in the arms when certain arteries narrow or become blocked. This condition may prevent exercise by causing severe muscle cramps during physical activity.
We approach PAD with two objectives. First, we want to manage symptoms and support the patient in returning to regular physical activity. Second, we seek to stop the progress of artery narrowing so the risk of heart attack and stroke is reduced. PAD is treated with a multidimensional approach that may include a personalized diet and exercise program, medications, and, if necessary, atherectomy or angioplasty to repair the damaged artery or arteries.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization for Uterine Fibroids
Many women struggle with ongoing pain caused by uterine fibroids. These uterine tumors rarely become cancerous. However, the chronic pelvic pain, bladder pressure, heavy menstrual bleeding and persistent fatigue that coincide with uterine fibroids can affect quality of life. Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally-invasive procedure that alleviates the symptoms of uterine fibroids for approximately 90 percent of women who are diagnosed with these tumors. The outpatient procedure works by systematically disrupting blood flow to individual tumors, causing necrosis to targeted tumor tissue.
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
Pelvic Congestive Syndrome (PCS) is a significant women’s health issue that can cause chronic pelvic pain. Like varicose veins, PCS relates to the valves located in the veins. Dysfunctional valves in the ovarian veins allow the reflux, or backward flow of blood, to occur, congesting these pelvic veins to the point of ongoing pain.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Deep vein thrombosis is a type of venous thromboembolism in which a blood clot has formed in the leg. DVT presents a potentially serious threat to health because any part of the clot that releases can travel to a smaller vein, causing a blockage. There are several methods of treating deep vein thrombosis, ranging from blood-thinning medication to intravenous delivery of a pharmacological agent that dissolves the clot. The treated vein may then be stented to support continuous circulation.
