I am now doing surgery for varicose veins: Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) and Miniphlebectomy (all under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis). I advise patients on "natural" remedies; ie. Nattokinase to dissolve blood clots and Coenzyme Q10 to strengthen the heart and protect against the complications and side effects of statin drugs.

Through this community outreach program, staff members of the Texas Heart Institute (THI) provide educational information related to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. It is not the intention of THI to provide specific medical advice, but rather to provide users with information to better understand their health and their diagnosed disorders. Specific medical advice will not be provided and THI urges you to visit a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to your questions.
