Lorven Health Center provides comprehensive care for patients with Venous and Lymphatic Diseases. It is headed by a medical team that has received international recognition for pioneering many innovative venous therapies, the Rane Center harnesses diagnostic facilities and the many resources of St. Dominic's Hospital to offer modern management for these diseases that are often poorly understood and treated. Nearly 700 patients from 35 different states in USA and some foreign countries have travelled to Ocala, FL to seek treatment from our medical team for venous problems.
Though some manifestations may look deceptively simple (varicose veins), venous disease is complex involving varying combinations of superficial, deep and perforator veins, different pathologies (obstruction, reflux or combination), aetiology (thrombotic, non-thrombotic) and clinical severity. Edema, often mistaken for lymphedema often has a hidden venous basis and may be correctible. Many women with post-menopausal edema often have a venous basis as well. A scientific approach to provide optimal treatment requires thorough clinical and laboratory evaluation and continuing long term follow up and interventions. The diagnostic and venous laboratory facilities of Lorven Health Center provide the necessary support for this mission. This comprehensive approach is unique and has become noted nationally as a model. Only a handful of other facilities in US offer such a comprehensive support.
Lorven Health Center performs highly specialized investigations for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The ICAVL requires investigations of the venous system for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) that should not be limited to the femoro-popliteal (groin to knee) veins, but should also include the calf veins and the iliac venous outflow, which are not routinely evaluated in non-accredited vascular laboratories. Studies have shown that the majority of DVT resulting in life-threatening pulmonary embolisms originate in the calf veins.
Lorven Health Center is devoted to providing excellent physician relations as well as quality patient care. To refer a patient to the laboratory, please contact the Vein Laboratory at (352) 401-9888
