Jefferson University Hospitals

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

The medical team of the Jefferson Vascular Center has the specialized expertise to help contain blood clots caused by deep vein thrombosis and prevent them from causing a potentially life-threatening complication by breaking free and blocking a lung artery (known as pulmonary embolism). Our physicians are experienced in providing a range of treatments for deep vein thrombosis, including medication therapy and the insertion of a filter into the vena cava (a large vein in the abdomen) to prevent clots from entering the lungs.

Since caring for vascular conditions such as deep vein thrombosis often involves more than one medical specialty, our Center employs an integrated approach that combines the expertise of specialists in internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology, interventional radiology and vascular surgery. Our team of physicians, nurses and pharmacists will coordinate your care and provide personalized consultations and follow-up visits.

We also provide access to the most advanced technologies and techniques used in the treatment of vascular diseases, thanks in part to our participation and leading role in clinical studies.
