DVT Awareness Month Grand Rounds at St. Charles Medical Center

March 1 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

March marks the start of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month, a critical time to shed light on this often silent yet potentially life-threatening condition. As part of our efforts to raise awareness and education about vein disease and in particular DVT, Dr. Edward Boyle, MD, the founder and director of Inovia Vein Specialty Centers, is giving a Grand Rounds presentation for St. Charles Health Systems’ main hospital, St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon. His presentation, “Advances in Acute and Chronic Diagnosis and Management of DVT,” will highlight the importance of understanding, diagnosing, and managing DVT effectively.

If there is any question that you or someone you know are experiencing symptoms of a DVT you should seek immediate medical attention by going to an urgent care, emergency room, or call 9-1-1.

Symptoms of a DVT may include:
• Pain in the calf area, increased when standing or walking
• Symptoms are usually in one leg, not both
• Swelling and/or redness in the lower leg or
• Skin changes

If you would like to learn more about DVT on an elective basis schedule a visit with your primary care provider or with us by calling 1-800-VEIN-DOC. You can also learn more about DVT risks and treatment at www.inoviavein.com/marchdvt
