The CORE Institute, Arizona's most respected orthopedic and musculoskeletal practice, has announced the opening of its Vein Health Center in its North Phoenix location. The Vein Health Center at The CORE Institute will serve as a specialty center for the treatment of medical vein conditions, including chronic venous insufficiency and the associated symptoms, which can include varicose veins, achy legs, restless legs, ulcers and chronic wounds. The center will be led by Dr. Jonathan Marshall and offer both screenings and minimally invasive procedures.
Jonathan Marshall, DO, is a Board Certified Radiologist and Fellowship Trained Interventional Radiologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic vein disease. He is experienced in minimally invasive venous treatments, including radiofrequency ablation, phlebectomy and VenaSeal Closure. Before joining The CORE Institute, Dr. Marshall served as Chief of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at a Level 1 Trauma Medical Center and was Co-director of the University of Buffalo Radiology Residency in New York.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) occurs when the valves that keep blood flowing correctly no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs and leads to the associated symptoms. The condition affects over 30 million Americans and is twice as prevalent as Coronary Heart Disease.
"While many people think of vein treatments as solely cosmetic, CVI can have debilitating symptoms that affect patients' quality of life," said Dr. Marshall. "Our goal is to treat the root cause of CVI so that patients are able to return to an active lifestyle with minimal downtime."
For those diagnosed with CVI, The Vein Health Center at The CORE Institute will offer various treatments, including radiofrequency ablation and the VenaSeal Closure system. Radiofrequency ablation uses a small catheter, which is inserted into the vein to shrink the walls of the diseased vein. The VenaSeal Closure system also uses a catheter inserted into the vein and uses a medical adhesive to safely close the diseased vein. Both treatments require no general anesthesia and allow for normal blood flow as blood is naturally rerouted to surrounding veins after the procedure.
"The addition of the vein health program at The CORE Institute is another way we are addressing the entire spectrum of musculoskeletal care for our patients, "said Dr. Mark Campbell, Market President of The CORE Institute. "Not only will this help patients with CVI, but it also can reduce the rate of complications for patients who are scheduled to undergo surgery of the lower extremity."
