You may have heard about Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which is the formation of a blood clot in a deep vein. But you may not know that March is DVT Awareness Month. This public health initiative is aimed at raising awareness about this commonly occurring medical condition and its potentially fatal complication––pulmonary embolism.
The first day of spring is March 20. While this month’s forecast shows cool weather, much warmer days will be here soon. So ask yourself these three questions: “Are my legs ready for spring?”, “Can shorts, skirts and swimsuits be far behind?”, and “Am I ready to show off my healthy looking legs at the beach, pool, lake, tennis court, or golf course?”
St. Valentine is part myth and part legend. Whoever he was, he became the catalyst for a wonderful annual celebration of love. Read on to find some interesting facts that we at Maryland Vein Professionals found very interesting.
We truly cherish receiving testimonials like these from our patients about minimally invasive varicose vein procedures. Here are a few recently received love letters from our MVP patients.
Varithena® Endovenous Injectable Microfoam is a safe, effective, alternative prescription medication used to treat varicose veins. It was introduced to Maryland Vein Professionals Columbia office patients in 2018.
Every year, tens of millions Americans make New Year’s resolutions. The problem is, fewer than ten percent actually meet their goals. So for 2019, make one simple resolution that you can actually keep. Tell yourself that you can have healthy legs without the pain or discomfort of bulging varicose veins or unsightly spider veins.
All of MVP’s 50+ employees at our offices in Annapolis, Chevy Chase, Columbia and Towson would like to extend the warmest wishes of the season: Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and happy Kwanzaa. We also wish you a very happy, prosperous new year with healthy legs that you won’t want to cover up.
Now that the holidays are here, you’re going to be walking more, shopping more, entertaining more, standing more, and spending more hours on your feet nearly every day. That’s why you should give yourself the gift of healthy legs, which can be the best present of all.
Here are 10 things we’re thankful for as Thanksgiving approaches: 1) We’re proud that all six of MVP’s physicians are board-certified surgeons: Jonathan Calure, MD; Jon Hupp, MD, FACS; James Laredo, MD, PhD; Peter Liao, MD, PhD; Jane Lingelbach, MD; and David Whittaker, MD, FACs.
