March is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) awareness month, and Garvey Vascular Specialists is joining the effort to decrease instances of serious illness and death caused by DVT.
DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in vein, typically one that is deep in a leg. DVT clots often detach and enter the blood stream, whereby the clots can lodge in the lungs and potentially cause a pulmonary embolism. Pulmonary embolisms can be fatal if they are not detected and treated early.

Headed by Dr. Julius Garvey, Garvey Vascular Specialists is utilizing social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to disseminate educational information about DVT. Dr. Garvey has also developed a much-needed video about deep vein thrombosis to empower people to fight back against this potentially lethal vein problem.
Every person should understand the symptoms and risk factors associated with deep vein thrombosis and seek immediate medical care if necessary.
