Conroe Vein Clinic: Interventional Radiology Offers Options with Quick Recovery

There is a new medical procedure for anyone suffering from varicose veins or other diseases caused by lack of blood supply to the extremities. Conroe Vein Clinic provides minimally invasive treatment for conditions to diagnose and treat diseases with minimal pain, shorter recovery times, and reduced risks to the patient.

Interventional Radiology (IR) is a medical specialty which provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of disease. A tiny incision is made with advanced imaging guidance through an ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, or x-ray to very precisely determine the therapeutic procedure. IR is often just a pinhole procedure resulting in a very minimally invasive alternative to treat varicose veins.

Dr. Mobolaji Odelowo and Ms. Thu Cao, PA-C are the providers at the clinic. Dr. Odelowo graduated from the University of Ilorin in 1995 and received advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of disease of arteries and veins at Howard University and The University of Pennsylvania. He has practiced in the area for over 15 years. Dr. Odelowo has received in depth training in clinical assessment and minimally invasive treatment of vascular disease from prestigious institutions. The range of conditions which can be treated by IR is enormous and continually expanding.

As a member of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), Dr. Odelowo stays current on innovative developments to assist patients and learn advanced therapies for diseases in image-guided therapy to treat angiography, bone cancer, chemoembolization, pain management, uterine fibroid embolization, varicose veins, women’s health, pelvic congestion syndrome, and DVT.

“Many of our patients prefer our clinic for their treatment so they can be served exclusively at one location with coordinated care”, said Dr. Odelowo. “We want to alleviate any stress on the patient through effective communication of their entire treatment plan with their referring physicians”.

Procedures that can be treated with interventional radiology include unblocking of blood vessels, stenting, dissolving blood clots, and embolization (a procedure to block blood flow to cancer cells). Practicing IR physicians have attended medical school, a 4-year residency in diagnostic radiology, and then a specialized fellowship in applicable IR that includes diagnosing medical images and interventional therapy procedures.

IR is on the frontline of clinical advances in the treatment of vascular disease using guided technology and therapies. Conroe Vein Clinic practices “Cutting edge treatment without Cuts” according to Dr. Odelowo. The result is shorter hospital stays and reduced complications.

Serving all of Montgomery County, the clinic has been in business since 2008 and with plans to grow as needed to serve their patients.

“Visit with us first if you have any vascular disease. We may be able to use Interventional Radiation as an alternative to a long hospital stay with faster, less painful results!”
