Peripheral Artery Disease

If your legs start to hurt when you are active and feel better when you rest, there is a chance you are suffering from peripheral artery disease or PAD. If left untreated, this condition can lead to non-healing ulcers and amputation in the worst case.

Chest Pain

This is a severe symptom that sends millions to the emergency room every year. Though chest pain may develop from any number of causes, the symptoms may signify a heart problem. The providers at Downriver Heart and Vascular diagnoses and treats cardiovascular problems that cause chest pain.

Varicose Veins

While many believe that varicose veins are nothing more than a cosmetic problem, the condition can lead to severe health conditions like non-healing ulcers. Serving the Downriver community and across Wayne County, let our providers treat your varicose veins safely and effectively.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia that causes an irregular heartbeat. When left untreated, this condition can be fatal. Our providers use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to diagnose and treat the disease.

Coronary Artery Disease

This is a serious cardiovascular condition that affects blood flow to your heart. Typically developing over decades, a heart attack may be your first symptom. Make sure you are keeping up to date on your cardiovascular health with our heart and vascular specialists.

Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a significant health problem in the United States, affecting more than five million people. While it isn’t reversible, the cardiologists at Downriver Heart & Vascular design personalized care plans to improve your quality of life and prevent further damage to your heart.

Shortness of Breath

When you experience shortness of breath, you should always take it seriously. This symptom is a common sign of heart problems that need treatment to prevent serious complications. Serving patients across Wayne County, visit our practice for diagnostic testing to identify the cause of these symptoms.


An arrhythmia is a heart rhythm problem that causes your heart to beat too fast (tachycardia) or slow (bradycardia). Other than this change in your heartbeat, you may not have any other symptoms. However, irregular heartbeats may be a sign of an underlying heart condition. Trust our cardiologists to diagnose and treat your arrhythmia.

Heart Palpitations

If you feel your heart may be beating too fast, you may be experiencing heart palpitations. This may be a sign that the electrical signals in your heart are off. Come to Downriver Heart & Vascular Specialists in Southgate, MI, to diagnose and treat your condition.


The term syncope is just another way to describe fainting. While it can be harmless if caused by dehydration or the sight of blood, it can also be a sign of a heart condition. This symptom could lead to serious complications. We provide fainting evaluations to determine the cause and best course of treatment for each patient afflicted with this problem.

Venous Disease

If you need treatment for painful varicose veins or venous disease, you can rely on the team’s expertise at Downriver Heart and Vascular Specialists. We focus on conservative and minimally invasive procedures to restore blood flow and protect your long-term cardiovascular health.

Structural Heart Disease

Structural heart disease is a condition that can cause problems like arrhythmias or heart failure. It can be present at birth or develop due to daily wear and tear and lifestyle choices. Our team performs advanced diagnostic testing and provides individualized treatments to target your type of structural heart disease. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Vascular Lab Procedures

This procedure specializes in diagnosing vascular diseases that may affect how well the blood flows in the arteries and veins. The lab examines blood vessels throughout the body that feed major organs and tissue. We hope to diagnose and detect vascular conditions, including peripheral arterial disease, stroke, and aneurysms.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment that involves the patient breathing a more pure form of oxygen and is delivered in a small, pressurized chamber. Pressure can be up to three times higher than normal conditions making the lungs more efficient at gathering oxygen to utilize in the body.

When a patient experiences tissue damage, oxygen plays a crucial role in fighting infection and minimizing an injury. There are currently 13 uses for HBOT that the FDA has approved for treatment.

Nuclear Stress Testing

Nuclear stress testing uses a small amount of radioactive material and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flowing to your heart. This diagnostic tool shows how well your heart responds when forced to work harder and pump more blood out to your body.

Let our vascular specialists perform these stress tests in our Southgate, MI, office. Request an appointment today.

Pacemaker Services

If you’re diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia, you may need a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator to keep your heartbeat steady. Our staff will perform diagnostic tests to determine if a pacemaker is best for you. Downriver Heart & Vascular Specialists offers pacemaker services performed by our board-certified cardiologists.
