Cardiovascular medicine focuses on diagnosing and treating diseases of arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels. It covers the entire spectrum from prevention to diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as peripheral arterial disease, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and venous ulcers. It is a subspecialty that requires close collaboration between interventional cardiologists, Cardiovascular and endovascular specialists, interventional radiologists, primary care physicians, and other specialists.
At Vanguard Medical Group, our Cardiovascular medicine specialists are here to help you understand and manage your vascular health. We provide comprehensive care, acute treatments for emergencies, preventive measures to reduce the risk of life-threatening events, and innovative treatments for complex conditions.

Medical Management of Peripheral Arterial Disease
Fatty cholesterol-containing deposits cause peripheral artery disease on the artery wall (atherosclerosis) in the legs resulting in reduced blood flow to the lower legs. Smoking, high blood pressure or cholesterol levels, a family history of peripheral artery disease, or obesity may cause it.
Most people having PAD suffer from symptoms such as:
- Hair loss
- Numbness or weakness of legs
- Shrinking of muscles
Our peripheral Cardiovascular specialists will evaluate the patient and review their medical history, and various other factors will be considered to develop a personalized treatment plan. In addition, our doctors provide comprehensive care for people with peripheral artery disease and treatment for claudication using medications, angioplasty, stenting, endarterectomy, and bypass grafting.
Medical Management of Carotid Disease
Carotid artery disease is the narrowing of blood vessels caused by atherosclerosis, resulting in a reduced flow of oxygen and nutrients to the brain. Brain cells die after just a few minutes without blood or oxygen. There are certain risk factors associated with carotid artery disease, including:
- Alcohol drinking
- High cholesterol levels
After proper diagnosis, our specialized team of cardiologists provides carotid disease treatment with different types of medications for carotid artery disease treatment. It includes Antiplatelet, anti-hyperlipidemia, anticoagulants, and anti-hypertensive, depending on the patient’s condition and complications.
At Vanguard, carotid artery stenosis treatment brings together neurologists, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, cardiovascular and endovascular surgeons, and neuro radiologists to provide comprehensive, individualized diagnosis and treatment.
Medical Management of Venous Diseases
Venous diseases are caused by decreased vein valves, resulting in poor circulation. This causes blood to pool and form a clot in the vein, called deep vein thrombosis. Venous diseases can be life-threatening if the clot travels to the lungs and causes a pulmonary embolism. The venous diseases include deep vein thrombosis, ulcers, varicose veins, and chronic venous insufficiency.
At Vanguard, our team strives to provide the most appropriate chronic venous insufficiency treatment in a compassionate environment. We offer comprehensive, leading-edge diagnosis and treatment for all diseases, including varicose vein treatment and treatment for DVT.
Our top-qualified cardiologists and physicians will ensure the patient gets the best medication treatment and provide minimally invasive surgery techniques that lessen recovery time for varicose vein treatment and chronic ulcers.
