Varicose & Spider Veins
(Currently Available at the El Paso Location Only)
Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins. Varicose veins can happen anywhere in the body, but are more common in the legs.
They can be uncomfortable and can lead to more serious problems. And, because they may be very noticeable, they may cause people to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, sometimes even leading to avoiding shorts or skirts.
Fortunately, today’s varicose vein treatment options have proven to be minimally invasive, safe, effective and covered by most insurance plans. At I-Vascular Center we treat varicose and spider veins from the root cause. We offer various treatment options, including laser spider vein removal.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
(Currently Available at El Paso & San Antonio Locations Only)
Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD, is a progressive disease that is the result of plaque buildup in the arteries that supply blood to the limbs—usually the legs. Plaque can build up inside arteries around the knee or around the shin and calf. PAD is such a serious health condition because it involves your cardiovascular system. Cardiovascular means “having to do with the heart and blood vessels."
PAD affects up to 8.5 million people in the US alone. But studies have shown only about 25% of adults age 50 and older have any awareness of PAD.*
Your cardiovascular system is also known as your circulatory system, and it connects everything from your brain to your toes. Your heart, arteries, veins, and lungs all work together to move nutrients and oxygen-rich blood to every single part of your body. If you have plaque buildup in your legs, there is a high likelihood that it could occur in other arteries of your body, so it’s important to do everything you can to keep your cardiovascular system healthy. If you think you may be suffering from PAD disease, schedule your free vein screening online or call us today at (915) 529-0858. *According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Port PICC Line Placement
(Currently Available in El Paso Only)
A PICC line is used to deliver medications and other treatments into the bloodstream. It is usually implanted in under skin in the upper chest.
Your doctor might recommend a PICC line if your treatment plan requires frequent needle sticks for medicine or blood draws. Medications can be injected into the septum and blood samples can be drawn many times from the port, usually with less discomfort than the usual needle stick.
A PICC line is commonly recommended for:
- Cancer treatments. Medicines that are infused through a vein, such as some chemotherapy and targeted therapy drugs.
- Liquid nutrition. If your body can’t process nutrients from food because of digestive system problems, you may need a PICC line for receiving liquid nutrition.
- Infection treatments. Antibiotics and antifungal medicines can be given through a PICC line for serious infections.
- Other medications. Some medicines can irritate the small veins, and giving these treatments through the PICC line reduces that risk.
Once your PICC line is in place, it can be used for other things, too, such as blood draws, blood transfusions, and receiving contrast material before an imaging test.
