Deep Vein Thrombosis
Some veins sit deeper inside your body, including many of those in your legs. When a blood clot forms in these veins, a condition called deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, occurs. If you have symptoms such as leg pain or swelling, our doctors provide expert diagnosis and treatment to help you feel better.
