Austin Vascular Surgeon
Texan Vein & Vascular offers vascular ultrasound services with a dedicated
in-house vascular lab. Vascular disease is complex and requires a wide
range of expertise for appropriate and durable treatment. Because early
detection can reduce the risk of serious complications, we put enormous
emphasis on diagnosis using the most advanced technologies.
In addition to being a double-board certified vascular surgeon,
Dr. Vinit Varu
is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI), the highest
standard in vascular ultrasound, and will personally interpret all studies.
He is joined by one of the most experienced Registered Vascular Technologists
in the Austin area. The two will work together every day to meet the needs
of patients with complex problems, including those with crisis situations
such as strokes, threatened limbs, kidney failure, abdominal aneurysms,
DVT, and the complications of diabetes.
Types of ultrasounds include:
- Venous duplex for DVT
- Venous reflux study for leg swelling and varicose vein evaluation
- Abdominal duplex for AAA screening
- Carotid duplex for carotid stenosis
- Lower extremity arterial duplex and ABIs for PAD
- Vein mapping for fistula evaluation
