Saint Mary's has begun to use a new treatment procedure for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which detects leg vein clots early on and significantly improves patient outcomes.
DVT occurs when a clot forms in the deep veins of the leg or arm and is currently treated with blood thinners, or anticoagulation therapy. Anticoagulation therapy prevents future clots and does not remove the clot, but rather relies on the body's own internal mechanisms, which may take several months.
Saint Mary's now offers treatment with Trellis Peripheral Infusion System, an efficient and minimally invasive procedure. This offers patients a pain-free, quick healing mechanism to the current alternative.
