Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) - Blood Clot Treatment in Oklahoma

Blood clots, also known as Deep Venous Thrombosis, or “DVT”, is a common medical problem affecting approximately 1 million people in the US every year. Blood clots can effect the deep veins (DVT) or the superficial veins. DVT have an increased risk of causing complications such as Pulmonary Embolism or Post-Thrombotic Syndrome.  Superficial blood clots (superficial thrombophlebitis) are a common problem presenting with linear pain, redness and swelling.

Evaluation and Treatment for DVT

  • Initial evaluation with Ultrasound is performed in our clinic vascular lab to determine the location and extent of thrombus
  • Depending on location and reason for developing DVT, patients are typically given a prescription for an oral blood thinning medication. The duration of the blood thinning medication is dependent on extent of DVT, reason for development and history of prior DVT.
  • Some patients with extensive DVT and symptoms that are not resolving may undergo an endovascular procedure to break up and aspirate the clot out of the affected vein or veins.
  • If patient is at hight risk for Pulmonary Embolism or is unable to take blood thinning medication, a temporary IVC filter may be placed for protection from pulmonary embolism (PE)

Testimonials

Professional staff working in a beautiful facility with great doctors who sincerely care about their patients. Without Dr. Schmidt's skill, I would have needed heart bypass surgery instead of a stent. Follow-up has been thorough. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Dr. Jim Melton and all the staff are fantastic. He is an excellent surgeon and his team is GREAT!!!! I just had surgery at the surgery center, I have only great things to say about my experience. Without him I really don't think I would be here to write this. If you’re looking for a good cardiovascular team, they are a 5 star for sure.

Dr. Parsons and staff are amazing. He truly listened to me from the consult. Staff showed genuine care for my progress post procedure. I had my follow up appointment today so satisfied with results. Blake made me comfortable from the start. He is an activist for uterine fibroids treatment beyond the standard.

Dr. John Schrader is the most personable doctor we know. He stays on top of my dads health care and is genuinely concerned about his health. We never leave his office with questions. He answers them all. Even questions we don’t think of. Always professional but never cold or bad bedside manner. In our opinion he is THE BEST around.
Thank you Dr Schrader.

I came to Dr. Warren by a self referral for mals when it took me 8yrs 50+ doctors and thousands of dollars spent on no answers. My first visit I was scared I was just going to be gaslighted just like the past however I was pleasantly shocked when Dr. Warren immediately believed me. She took the time to review many disk I had brought from past tests. She never once dismissed me and listened to ever word I had to say. She scheduled one last test to confirm the diagnosis then I was scheduled for surgery right away. Surgery was a success and I can’t thank her and her staff enough. Dr. Warren truly saved my life.
