What is Ultrasound-guided therapy?
At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, you will be treated by our board-certified general surgeon, Dr. Matthew Lynch. Throughout his career, he has specialized in vascular medicine in various medical settings. Today, he has a private practice where he can offer men and women in Peoria, AZ — as well as the surrounding areas of Phoenix and the West Valley — nonsurgical and minimally invasive vein treatments. Dr. Lynch can diagnose, treat, and manage vascular issues with ultrasound-guided therapy. Using a Doppler ultrasound to see and watch your vein move in real-time, Dr. Lynch can study your vascular issue and address more than the aesthetic appearance of the skin. A diagnostic ultrasound can give Dr. Lynch insight into how your blood flows. Then, he can map your veins and provide you with options on how to treat your underlying vascular issues. At Lynch Vein & Aesthetics, we offer in-depth, ultrasound-guided therapies to treat your veins with precision. He will do his best to facilitate the least invasive treatment method that your condition requires. If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Lynch, he is accepting new patients.

DO I need Ultrasound-Guided Therapy?
In a consultation, Dr. Lynch will use a Doppler ultrasound to take a closer look at your vein health. He can assess your vein for blood clots, poor blood circulation, venous insufficiency, and more. Diagnostic ultrasounds allow Dr. Lynch to pinpoint your venous condition and create a custom treatment plan based on the findings. If you are going to have a therapy performed on your vein(s), Dr. Lynch will most likely be using the ultrasound for guidance.
Ultrasound-Guided Therapy Details
Dr. Lynch can use a Doppler ultrasound at any stage of your treatment, which could be in the initial evaluation, during your treatment, and as an assessment in your follow-up.
In one of our private treatment rooms, we will have a Doppler ultrasound set up for you. You may need to remove your clothing and jewelry (depending on the concerning area). We will ask that you change into a paper gown for an ultrasound of the arms or legs. Dr. Lynch will have you lie down on the examination table and then we will apply ultrasound gel to the skin where needed. He will roll the ultrasound's transducer on your skin to find, mark, and map out your veins. Then, he can make recommendations for your treatment.
Dr. Lynch will use the Doppler ultrasound throughout any therapy he feels is necessary to carry out the precise treatment. In real-time, Dr. Lynch will be able to see the damaged vein with this Doppler ultrasound guidance and know exactly where to insert a needle or a catheter. While performing the ultrasound-guided therapy, Dr. Lynch will explain what he is doing, why he is doing it, and answer your questions. For your comfort, Dr. Lynch does offer a local or regional anesthetic injection to numb the area. You may be awake, but you should not feel the treatment.
For follow-up appointments
Dr. Lynch may want to perform a follow-up ultrasound to see how well your vascular treatment worked. He can study your blood flow and see how your veins responded to the selected therapy.
What to Expect
Most of our treatments can be performed at our office and without heavy sedation or general anesthesia. This means you should be able to drive and go about your day if you feel up to it after your appointment. Dr. Lynch may ask you to wear a compression stocking (above or below the knee) to help with recovery and blood circulation. We can also send your medical records and Doppler ultrasound results to your primary care physician (PPC). Your PPC may want to go over the results as well, make recommendations, and modify your medications.
Ultrasound-Guided Therapy FAQ
How do I know if I need ultrasound-guided therapy?
Ultrasound-guided therapy can address a number of vascular issues, including poor circulation, blood clots, spider veins, venous insufficiency, and more. Signs of poor circulation, especially in the legs, can include pain, cramping, swelling, throbbing, itching, fatigue, and a heavy feeling.
What causes vascular issues?
The three main causes of vascular disease include heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease. People with diabetes are also at risk for vascular problems. Symptoms of vascular problems include varicose veins, thick and dark toenails, wounds that don't heal over pressure points (ankles, heels), numbness and weakness in the muscles, burning or itching (often in the toes) while resting, and loss of mobility.
Will I need follow-up therapy after ultrasound-guided therapy treatment?
It is important to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Lynch after your initial treatment so he can perform tests to make sure the procedure was successful and to detect any possible issues. Dr. Lynch will discuss the steps and procedures necessary to follow during your consultation at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics.
