Help for May-Thurner Syndrome

A safe procedure is helping patients with May-Thurner Syndrome

Daniel Clair, MD

May-Thurner is an unusual syndrome that affects a small number of people. It can be tremendously limiting. It is caused when an artery or arterial branch passes over a segment of the vein in the pelvis, which leads to narrowing. This causes swelling in the leg and pressure when you do activities. We can treat the problem safely and in a short time by using a stent to hold the vein open and get the flow back to normal.
