SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--La Jolla Vein & Vascular (LJVV), the regional leader in vein treatment, is excited to announce expanded vascular services, including endovascular procedures that rely on advanced medical imaging in real-time. The new services are spearheaded by LJVV’s newest hire, Dr. Elliot DeYoung. Dr. DeYoung specializes in interventional radiology—and provides expertise in a variety of areas, including vascular disease, angioplasty, stenting, embolization, ablation, and more. “We’re excited to welcome Dr. DeYoung to LJVV’s team of doctors and vein specialists,” said Dr. Nisha Bunke, renowned vein expert and founder of LJVV.
Now spanning four locations, LJVV is better positioned to provide expert care for increasingly complex vascular conditions throughout Southern California. With the hire of Dr. DeYoung, the LJVV team is able to offer a wider variety of advanced services to complement its famed non-surgical procedures for varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. Dr. DeYoung’s expertise additionally includes interventional treatments for conditions such as peripheral arterial disease, pelvic congestion, May-Thurner, deep vein thrombosis, varicocele, and uterine fibroids. He also specializes in a novel treatment for osteoarthritis, called geniculate artery embolization (GAE). GAE is a minimally invasive intra-arterial intervention that selectively embolizes the geniculate branches for treatment of chronic knee pain from osteoarthritis.
Previously known as La Jolla Vein Care, the new LJVV name reflects the expanded service offering. “We’re proud to build our reputation on our innovative approach to advanced vein care,” said Dr. Bunke. ‘It’s always been our mission to offer the most comprehensive vein care possible—and now we’re able to offer even more comprehensive vein and vascular care to the entire region,” said Dr. Bunke.
