Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sista "Fortunately, many patients who suffer from deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and chronic venous insufficiency have endovascular treatment options that they did not have previously. Moreover, all these conditions can become chronic and require long-term follow up and care. At the Weill Cornell Thrombosis and Deep Venous Disease Center, I help patients understand their disease, offer minimally invasive treatments, and ensure they get the long-term follow up they need."
