Ever suffer from pain in your arms or legs? Poor circulation? Varicose Veins? Swelling? Burning and itching? Discoloration of the skin? A rash?
Well, that could be more than just a momentary discomfort … those symptoms could indicate a condition that could lead to an ulcer.
Medical personnel providing care at Vascular Surgery Associates are determined to get to the bottom of it, to identify the source of the discomfort and to provide healing.
When you head over to Vascular Surgery Associates for diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease and wound healing, you can be sure that your needs are the caregivers’ top priority.
“We focus more on what’s best for the patient. We’re not tied to any one healthcare system … We work with all systems, allowing us to choose the best from all,” said Dr. Craig Walvatne, proclaiming Vascular Surgery Associates’ determination to provide the best care possible for each patient seen there.
Vascular Surgery Associates provides diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease and wound healing from two locations: one in Coon Rapids, the other in Blaine.
Starting as a merger of two existing practices back in 1999, Vascular Surgery Associates continues to provide cutting-edge care for patients with venous disease, arterial disease and wound issues.
Vascular Surgery Associates has pioneered cost-effective in-office techniques for the treatment of varicose veins and related conditions.
VSA is known for an ability to develop treatment plans for a wide variety of issues in patients with limited options and resources.
Vascular Surgery Associates is dedicated to the treatment of peripheral vascular diseases, those conditions that involve the arteries and veins outside of the heart.
Treatments involve proven state-of the art therapies, but first a thorough evaluation of the problem is conducted.
Then treatment of the entire process is completed to ensure ongoing resolution of the problem.
“We also evaluate for the causes of the condition,” Dr. Walvatne said. “We just keep on going until we find an answer.”
That persistence is perhaps what makes Vascular Surgery Associates so vital to its patients.
“We make sure we find out what’s wrong and we spend as much time as is needed to do that. There are no time constraints on seeing patients,” said Dr. Walvatne.
“You have to be willing to take extra steps and get an answer for the problem,” the doctor declared.
That persistence and thorough patient care means Vascular Surgery Associates has a very loyal patient following.
Not only that, Vascular Surgery Associates uses the latest proven techniques to diagnose and treat patients’ conditions.
“We have very good clinical success with the procedures that we do,” Dr. Walvatne said.
New developments at Vascular Surgery Associates have the clinic expanding to include spider vein treatment and working with other practitioners to improve the wound care offered there.
Vascular Surgery Associates promises to continue to expand and grow with the community for many years to come.
