Common Signs of Vascular Disease
You may have obvious visual signs of vascular disease, such as bulging varicose veins, swollen legs, discolored skin, or ulcers. These symptoms tend to worsen over time and become more apparent as vascular disease progresses. In other cases, vascular disease may be completely hidden and require vascular imaging techniques to detect.
The pain patterns of vascular disease can vary. Individuals with venous insufficiency often experience night cramps, aching, and restless legs; whereas those with peripheral artery disease are more likely to experience cramping pain after walking long distances or during vigorous exercise.
Bulging varicose veins develop on the surface of the leg

Minimally Invasive Image-Guided Vascular Procedures
Minimally invasive image-guided procedures (MIIPs) are non-surgical treatments that specially trained doctors use to treat a variety of diseases throughout the body, including peripheral artery disease and venous insufficiency.
Unlike surgery, which requires cutting to remove or repair parts of the body, MIIPs are performed using small needles, tubes, and wires to deliver targeted therapy right where the body needs it.
What Our Patients Say
From the moment I setup the initial appointment to speak with Dr. Fritts, to after my final procedure, the entire staff was phenomenal. I have been to many specialists, for many reasons, and Dr. Fritts and his staff truly stand out. They understood the nature and complexity of my case and I was very at ease with our conversations as well as the "plan of attack." At no point did I feel like a number. No question was silly or stupid, and my complex case was never undermined. I highly recommend Dr. Fritts and his staff of experts.

"Very compassionate! During a Doppler, I had an abnormality. The tech went and got him and he stayed with us and explained what was going on! He knew his field and reported correctly to the ordering physician. If you need this service please use Dr Fritts!"
Ashley in Allen, TX
"Dr. Fritts performed a bone biopsy on me last week and carefully explained his rationale for where & how to take the biopsy. He gave me all the time I needed to understand & feel comfortable with the procedure. I am extremely grateful for his caring, gentle and highly competent care in a situation that has felt frightening and anonymous. He has a healer’s way about him. Highest recommendation."

Comprehensive Vascular Care
Our Vascular Specialists are dedicated to healing debilitating circulatory diseases. We specialize in the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of peripheral artery disease and venous insufficiency.
Venous insufficiency develops when healthy blood flow is impaired in the veins of the legs. Vein disease is usually recognized by visible varicose veins or spider veins, but serious leg pain, swelling, and skin changes can develop as venous insufficiency progresses into its later stages.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition in which blockages develop in the major arteries of the limbs, usually in the legs. PAD causes a number of challenging symptoms like pain when exercising, leg discomfort, and difficult-to-heal sores on the foot or the ankle in severe cases.
