If You Have Symptoms or Have Been
Diagnosed With DVT, We can Help.
DVT can be very serious because blood clots in your veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream and get stuck in your lungs. This can become life threatening. We can help diagnose and treat DVT to prevent serious complications. Get help today.
What Are The
Symptoms of DVT?

The symptoms associated with an acute DVT include:

Some people don’t know they have a DVT until the clot moves from their leg or arm and travels to their lung. Symptoms of acute PE include chest pain, shortness of breath, cough with blood, lightheadedness and fainting.

Don’t wait to see if your symptoms go away. Get treatment right away to prevent serious complications.
What are the Treatment Options?

(blood thinners)

This type of medication makes it harder for your blood to clot. Anticoagulants also stop clots from getting bigger and prevent blood clots from moving.


You‘ll probably need to wear graded elastic compression stockings to either improve or completely get rid of leg swelling. Damage to the small valves inside your veins often causes this swelling.


Our surgeon inserts the IVC filter into your inferior vena cava, a large vein in your abdomen. If blood clots in the veins of your legs break off and travel, the IVC filter is designed to prevent large blood clots (emboli) from reaching your lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism.


Mechanical thrombectomy devices are designed to help break up and physically remove all or portions of the blood clot. These devices are designed to remove extensive clots more efficiently, provide quicker restoration of venous flow and assist in restoring normal venous valve function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Blood clots may form in veins due to immobility, for example after surgery or if you sit for a long flight or car trip. Other risk factors for developing deep vein thrombosis include:
  • Injuries from an accident
  • Prior history of DVT
  • Family history of DVT
  • Having a central venous catheter
  • Cancer
  • Being overweight
  • Taking birth control pills or hormone therapy
  • Pregnancy
  • Smoking
Common symptoms are:
  • Swelling of the leg
  • Pain or tenderness in the leg
  • Increased warmth in the area of the leg that is swollen or painful
  • Red or discolored skin in the area of the leg that is swollen or painful
Some people may not find out that they have DVT until a clot breaks off and travels to the lung resulting in a pulmonary embolism. The symptoms of pulmonary embolism include:
  • Chest pain when taking in a deep breath
  • Shortness of breath
  • A sensation of your heart beating fast
  • Fever
  • Cough
Proactive protection, also called prophylaxis, for DVT is far easier than treating it after it has occurred. Patients are evaluated for risk of DVT and are treated with appropriate prophylaxis while in the hospital. Prophylaxis may include:
  • Frequent ambulation and simple leg exercises to help keep blood moving.
  • Medications such as blood thinners. Some patients may be at high risk for using blood thinners. If so, compression stockings and / or a compression sleeve / pump will be placed on the patient’s legs or feet to help squeeze blood out and prevent clots from forming.
  • Mechanical devices such as a compression pump. It is important for the patient to keep the compression sleeve / pump on at all times, except when walking.
Dr Nwobi will obtain your medical history and will perform an examination to determine if deep vein thrombosis is present. To verify the diagnosis, a duplex ultrasound may be performed, which is a noninvasive test that evaluates the deep veins for the presence of clots.

Treatment of DVT includes blood thinners, to prevent the blood clot from progressing and dislodging to the lungs. These medications are taken for at least three to six months. Frequent blood tests are required so that your doctor can evaluate how well the blood thinners are working, and to determine if the dose of your medicine needs to be adjusted.

In addition, special stocking called "compression stockings" may be used to help prevent further clotting and reduce the pain and swelling that can happen with deep vein thrombosis.

In some cases, Dr Nwobi will recommend placement of a vena cava filter to prevent embolisms from traveling to the lungs. This device is generally used for patients who cannot take blood thinners, are at high risk for embolism, or have recurrence of deep vein thrombosis. Certain patients may have the option of filter removal once risk of pulmonary embolism no longer exists.

For some patients, removal of the blood clot may be offered. This is done by a minimally invasive procedure using special catheters with medication to break down and remove the clot. Removal of blood clots is usually performed on younger, active patients to prevent long-term complications such as chronic leg pain, swelling, and leg ulcers.
