The OBL is an extension of a vascular/endovascular physician practice where the interventionalist can perform angiograms, arterial interventions, dialysis access procedures, venous ablations, and other procedures allowed in an office-based setting.
In addition to the endovascular procedures, interventional radiologists can also perform uterine fibroid embolization, kyphoplasty, pain-related procedures, and others.
The OBL can be a safe and effective alternative to the hospital setting for select patients, and has been shown to produce high patient satisfaction scores, with patients reporting ease of access and an overall positive experience.
Wound Care Center
The APEx Wound Care Center treats patients with all types of non-healing wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, non-healing post-operative wounds, infected wounds, auto-immune related wounds, arterial ulcers and others.
The center focuses on limb preservation, treating and preventing unnecessary amputations in patients with diabetic foot ulcers, ischemic ulcers, and other limb-threatening conditions.
We achieve this by:
implementing centers of excellence
organizing and delivering effective clinical education
creating detailed databases and reports for quality improvement
following evidence-based clinical protocols
