Going beyond Traditional DVT treatments

If you’ve been diagnosed with a DVT blood clot, you want to do everything you can to take charge of your condition. That starts by taking blood thinners as prescribed and wearing compression socks to help reduce the chance that a portion of your clot breaks off and travels to other parts of your body.

These treatments are a critical part of treating DVT. But they won’t remove or dissolve the clot and may not relieve your symptoms. Some patients may be candidates for treatments designed to also relieve their symptoms and reduce their risk for long-term DVT complications.
