Is PAD preventing you from enjoying life to the fullest?
Aching, throbbing legs, pain and cramping, numbness, tingling, weakness, burning, discolored skin. These are just a few symptoms of peripheral artery disease (PAD) that may be preventing you from doing the things you love to do. You may be more likely to have PAD if (among other factors), you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes or a history of smoking. Left untreated, PAD can lead to amputation.
Early diagnosis is key. In addition to lifestyle changes, CCVV offers state-of-the art, minimally-invasive treatments that can get you back on your feet and enjoying life again.

Kenneth Spearman, M.D.
I was informed by my primary care physician that I had occlusion (blockage) of my arteries in my right leg as a result of heart disease and diabetes…As luck would have it, I went to an appointment with a podiatrist and, after he saw the results of my Arterial CT Scan, he referred me to Dr. Spearman at the Central Coast Vein and Vascular office. When I went, the office staff was extremely friendly and competent… Dr. Spearman told me about his procedure that did not require hospitalization and that he could perform the surgery the following week… The surgery lasted two hours… I was released, walked to the car of my driver, taken home, greeted by my dog outside of my place, and walked in. It was the most satisfying experience with a doctor in my life and I am 77 years old.
Say goodbye to varicose and spider veins
Unsightly and painful varicose and spider veins can put a damper on an active and healthy lifestyle. Varicose veins develop when blood pools in your veins (venous reflux) due to weak or damaged vein valves causing them to swell. Many factors can raise your risk for developing varicose veins including family history, older age, female gender, pregnancy, obesity, prolonged standing or sitting, blood clots, and prior trauma. They can worsen over time and cause more severe vein disorders if left untreated.
CCVV provides minimally-invasive, out-patient varicose and spider vein treatments that take less than 30 minutes and require no down time.
