• Uterine Fibroids (leiomyomas) are benign growths in the uterus. They occur in 20-50% of women and can cause pain, cramping, heavy periods, or irregular periods. The standard treatment of fibroids was a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus), and approximately one-third of the 600,000 hysterectomies performed in the USA each year are to treat fibroids. Now a new state-of-the-art method is available in Portland, Maine to treat fibroids without surgery!
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) usually results from atherosclerosis (plaque build up on the artery walls) in the arteries outside of the heart. This plaque can cause narrowing or blockages in the arteries in the legs, kidneys, intestines, and carotids.

    PVD has been associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality than either heart attacks or stroke.
  • Varicose Veins are unsightly and can cause pain or discomfort. They usually appear in women between the ages of 30 and 70, and will get progressively worse.

    The good news is Vascular & Interventional Physicians can now treat varicose veins quickly using a minimally invasive technique on an outpatient basis.
  • At Vascular & Interventional Physicians, we offer state-of-the-art minimally invasive treatments for a variety of cancers including:

    • Primary or metastatic (colon, breast) Liver Cancer
    • Primary or metastatic Lung Cancer
    • Kidney Cancer (Renal Cell Carcinoma)
    • Painful Spine Fractures and Painful Bone Metastases
  • Deep Venous Thrombosis (or clots in the veins) is a common chronic disease. There is a 25-50% risk of developing post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) at some point after the first DVT.

    Patients with PTS are comparable to those with other severe chronic medical conditions and can cause major impairment of quality of life.

Did You Know?
We treat varicose veins and spider veins? Varicose veins are swollen veins which protrude in a rope-like manner under the skin. Normal veins, by virtue of one-way valves, channel blood against gravity up the leg and back to the heart. When a valve becomes defective, it allows blood flow to leak back down the leg resulting in congestion and swelling of the vein. This is a medical condition called Venous Insufficiency.
