Revolutionizing Vascular Healthcare: MIVA Medical's Innovative Non-Surgical Treatments Transform Patient Lives

Independence, Missouri -

MIVA Medical, an office-based lab based in Independence, MO, is proud to announce they are revolutionizing vascular healthcare with their innovative non-surgical treatments. They offer minimally invasive and non-surgical treatments for a number of vascular conditions, such as: peripheral artery disease (PAD), uterine fibroids, osteoarthritis knee pain, cancer treatments, female pelvic pain, spinal compression fractures, and venous conditions. They take pride in their attentive staff, advanced equipment, and safe, outpatient environment.

MIVA Medical says "Patients with PAD are at increased danger of a heart attack or stroke and some may be at risk of losing a limb as the result of non-treatment. If detected early, arterial disease may be treated conservatively using a healthy lifestyle, diet, activity, and medicine. However, if left unchecked, the condition might develop to the point where it causes discomfort. At MIVA, we utilize a variety of sophisticated minimally invasive arterial procedures to treat complicated cases of PAD. Depending on the situation and its severity, it may include one or more of the following: balloon angioplasty, atherectomy, and stent placement.”

Meanwhile, spinal compression fractures are more common in women, especially among the elderly. Its most common cause is osteoporosis. Although less common, spinal compression fractures may be connected to spinal cancers or cancers that have spread to the spine. The treatment options will be determined by the findings of the patient’s clinic consultation and imaging test. However, the most common treatment for a spinal compression fracture is a kyphoplasty. This is a is a minimally invasive procedure where medical grade “bone cement” is applied to prevent the spinal compression fracture from worsening and as a way to relieve back discomfort.

Female pelvic pain may be due to uterine fibroids, pelvic congestion syndrome, or May Thurner syndrome. Uterine fibroids are smooth, noncancerous, muscular tumors that develop inside the uterus. They use the minimally invasive uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) for uterine fibroids. Pelvic congestion syndrome is a condition where varicose veins develop in the pelvis. For pelvic congestion syndrome, they use the minimally invasive ovarian vein embolization as the key treatment approach. May Thurner syndrome is when the left iliac vein is trapped between the spine and the right iliac artery. The minimally invasive treatment they can provide is to place a stent in the left iliac vein to allow normal blood flow.

Possible venous issues are: varicocele, venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome. Varicocele involves the enlargement of the veins in the scrotum and is typically found in over 15 percent of men. Treatment may be done by venogram and gonadal vein embolization. Venous insufficiency is a common condition that involves varicose veins and leg swelling. They may recommend: vein ablations, venaseal treatments, and minimally invasive endovenous laser therapy. DVT involves a blood clot that has formed in a deep vein. The treatment typically recommended is a venogram in combination with an intervention, such as angioplasty or stent placement.
