(ST. LOUIS, MO – April 27, 2021) Comprehensive Cardiovascular Consultants, which has been serving the St. Louis community for more than 13 years, is changing its name to Virtue Vein and Lymphatic Center. Dr. Raffi Krikorian, the founder of the practice, said the new name will better reflect the practice’s increasing clinical focus on vascular health and innovative new treatments for vein disorders.
“Vein disease and artery disease are very different, yet from a medical standpoint, they are often treated the same,” said Dr. Krikorian. “There is so much we are continuing to learn in this field, and to me as a practicing physician, this is like the new frontier of medicine. While we often think of cardiovascular disease as a larger threat to a person’s health, vein disease can impact many areas of your life as well, especially as we continue to see an increase in diabetes and the effects that can have on the body’s veins and circulation. It’s an area where I think my expertise can help people both medically and cosmetically, and I’m excited to make this a formal part of my practice.”
Virtue Vein and Lymphatic Center will focus on conditions such as lymphedema, varicose & spider veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pelvic congestion disease, restless leg syndrome, May-Thurner Syndrome, leg ulcers, and limb preservation in addition to cardiovascular procedures. The practice offers both in-person and telehealth appointments and is currently accepting new patients.
Dr. Krikorian said his practice uses and follows European vein techniques, which are often 2-3 years ahead of practices commonly used in the United States. With 25 years of experience in this field, Dr. Krikorian is one of only a few board-certified cardiologists throughout the St. Louis region to also practice in vascular, venous, and lymphatic health.
Virtue Vein and Lymphatic Center has six locations throughout Southwest Missouri and Illinois, including its flagship location at 3760 South Lindberg Blvd, Suite 101 in St. Louis. The private practice specializes in offering its patients cutting-edge solutions to their unique vein problems.
