Austin Vein Specialists is considered the May-Thurner Syndrome Experts for Central Texas. Dr. Gotvald, a board-certified vascular surgeon, has over 15 years of experience treating patients with May-Thurner Syndrome. The primary treatment for May-Thurner Syndrome symptoms is the placement of a venous stent into the iliac vein in the pelvis. This procedure is typically performed in the outpatient setting and takes under 1 hour for most patients. If a deep venous thrombosis, or blood clot, has occurred as a result of May-Thurner Syndrome anatomy, it may be necessary to receive a “clot-busting” medication or anticoagulation drug prior to proceeding with the stent insertion. Not all patients with May-Thurner Syndrome require stenting. It is advisable to seek an opinion from a board-certified vascular surgeon before receiving any treatment for May-Thurner Syndrome.
