Bicuspid aortic valve is a defect in the heart’s aortic valve that is present at birth (congenital). Some medical experts suggest it may be caused by a connective tissue disorder similar to that which causes the heart and blood vessel problems in Marfan syndrome.
Varicose veins are dilated veins that have lost their valve effectiveness and become elongated, bulged and thickened. Veins carry blood from the capillaries to the heart. In the leg, this means the blood has to flow upward, against gravity. These veins have one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards.
Nearly 1.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from aortic valve stenosis - one of the most common and serious heart valve conditions.

Duplex ultrasound combines Doppler flow information and conventional imaging information, sometimes called B-mode, to allow physicians to see the structure of your blood vessels.
An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test that records the electrical activity and the electrical pathways of your heart. This test is done to help determine the cause of a heart rhythm disturbance and used to provide possible treatment options. This procedure is done in a cardiac catheterization lab.
Venous duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture images of internal views of veins that return blood to the heart. During an upper extremity venous duplex scan, the veins in your neck, shoulders, arms and wrists are viewed.

Cardioversion is a procedure that can restore a fast or irregular heartbeat to a normal rhythm. A fast or irregular heartbeat is called an arrhythmia. This is commonly used to treat arrhthymia commonly known as Atrial Fibrillation. Arrhythmias can prevent your heart from pumping enough blood to your body.
Carotid angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to treat a narrowing in the carotid artery which carries critical blood flow to the brain. This procedure can be done in lieu of Carotid Endarterectomy surgery in patients who are considered a ‘high surgical risk’
External cardiac counterpulsation is a non-invasive outpatient technique performed to decrease chest pain (angina pectoris) by increasing oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart. The external counterpulsation system inflates and deflates pressure cuffs on the legs, moving the blood from the lower limbs toward the heart.
